PDP House of Assembly Members Back Sen. Olujimi as Party Leader



The People's Democratic Party caucus in the  Ekiti State House of Assembly has thrown it's weight behind Senator Biodun Olujimi as the leader of the party in the state.

Their position is contained in a release signed by Mr 'Nitan Akinola, Media Assistant to the leader of the caucus and the Deputy Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon Segun Adewumi in Ado Ekiti.

The PDP Assembly caucus also maintains that members stand by decision of stakeholders that the Gboyega Oguntuase led party's executive stand dissolved, as it lacks the requisite trust of members to continue to be in such position.

According to the statement, their should ordinarily be no contest about the leadership of the party in the state as Senator olujimi is the most eminently qualified at the moment to be in that position and be so addressed.

The PDP caucus explains that Senator Olujimi is the highest political office holder presently in the state, as the Minority whip of the Senate, a ranking member of the National Assembly, a former Commissioner and a former Deputy Governor of the State.

They legislators observes that those contending the issue of former Governor Ayo Fayose as the leader of the party in the state are only being mischievous as there is no contest about the leadership of the party, since the position is not contested for.

They appealed to members of the party to unite and concentrate on the ongoing election petition filed by the party, while attention should also be paid to the 2019 rather than pursuing divisive agenda.

The Lawmakers stress the importance of the next year National and State Assembly elections which they insist could only be won by the party under the leadership of selfless people in the party.

The PDP legislators maintain that they remain principled and commited members of the PDP as against insinuation in some quarters.

The legislators point out that their support for the state governor, Doctor Kayode Fayemi has nothing to do with politics, but the interest of Ekiti people  whom they are elected to represent and serve.
