OGSIEC, APC Bent On Shutting PDP Out Of LG Polls, Says Party Chair



The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Sikirulahi Ogundele, on Thursday led a protest against the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission, (OGSIEC) accusing it of meddling in the affairs of the party.

Ogundele, who stormed the Ogun NUJ Secretariat, Okelewo, Abeokuta with other members of the party, said there was a “renewed calculated attempt by the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC) to keep on intermedling in the affairs of our party by deliberately obstructing the cause of justice as far as PDP’s participation in the forthcoming LG election is concerned.”

Addressing newsmen, the Chairman intimated that the party had gone through a phase of robust reconciliation of all interests, adding that it had, through the party’s team of legal minds, provided verifiable documents to properly guide the decision of the electoral body.

However, Ogundele said, “We are very disturbed that, without any shade of doubts, OGSIEC is obviously acting a script as written by the ruling APC government which is bent on avoiding healthy political competition which the forthcoming LG election presents
The Ogun PDP leader said “there is no any form of crisis, rancour or disagreement in the party any longer,” stressing that all interests within the party now operates in total harmony under the his leadership.

This, he said, was as a result of the robust reconciliation which the party just achieved through the Sen. Bukola Saraki-led National Reconcillation and Strategy Committee.
He spoke further, “We shall resist any form of orchestrated attempt by OGSIEC to fan embers of discord in our ranks
