Weekly Trust - - News - Muideen Olaniyi

The So­cial Demo­cratic Party (SDP) has sus­pended its Na­tional Fi­nan­cial Sec­re­tary, Hon. Ke­hinde Ay­oola and Oyo State chap­ter chair­man, Al­haji Ko­la­wole Ba­lo­gun.

The party, in a state­ment is­sued yes­ter­day, signed by Na­tional Sec­re­tary Al­haji Shehu Gabam, said the sus­pen­sion fol­lowed their open and tele­vised en­dorse­ment of the Oyo State PDP gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date, Mr. Seyi Makinde.

The SDP said the de­ci­sion was to serve as a de­ter­rent to would-be of­fend­ers and guard against gross in­dis­ci­pline and anti-party ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment, the anti-party dis­po­si­tion of the two of­fi­cials was un­ac­cept­able and con­demnable con­sid­er­ing the fact it would gen­er­ate a con­flict of in­ter­est be­tween the gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the SDP in the state whose in­ter­est should tower above any other as far as the 2019 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion was con­cerned.

In the in­terim, Chief Ajeniyi Aje­w­ole has been ap­pointed as the act­ing state chair­man for Oyo State pend­ing fur­ther no­tice.
