Category: Inside politics
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ondo State has suspended the director general of Chief Olusola Oke’s campaign organization, Dr. Dare Bada.
A statement signed by the state PDP publicity secretary, Mr. Wale Ozogoro said Bada was suspended for anti party activity and failure to account for money spent on election day.
The party said it had invited Dr. Bada several times to answer questions pertaining to the campaign expenditure of the gubernatorial election held on 20th October, 2012 to no avail.
“The party also frowned and regretted the anti party activities of Dr. Bada coupled with his latest vituperation in both the print and electronic media. He has continued to perfect falsehood and perfidy against the party and her leadership.
“The working committee therefore, set up a disciplinary committee in line with the constitution of the party to look into these allegations and submit report to her within two weeks.
However, Dr. Bada remained suspended from the party pending the committee’s report, the party stated.
In his reaction, the suspended DG said the development was illegal because of a pending court case before state executive of the party.
“Well, i have received a letter of suspension, but it should be noted that there is a court injunction restraining them from forming a state executive. For now, the Ondo State PDP has no state committee, and that decision is uncalled for.”
