S/West PDP petitions Lagos CP, DSS over Adewale, declares him non-PDP member

Wwants him restrained from accessing party secretariat

The leadership crisis rocking the Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is far from being resolved as the zonal chapter of the party waded in at the weekend, calling on the Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, to restrain Otunba Segun Adewale a.k.a Aeroland currently laying claim to party chairmanship from gaining further access to the PDP secretariat in the state “or any other party facility.”

The PDP secretariat is currently located at 56A, Adekunle Fajuyi Way, Ikeja.

PDP National Vice Chairman, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, while making the call in a petition personally signed by him, also urged the State Director, Directorate of Security Service (DSS) to do same in order to maintain peace and order.

This was just as he described Adewale, who had for some time insisted that he was now the authentic chairman of Lagos PDP, having sacked the incumbent, Dr. Adegbola Dominic, as an impostor, while declaring him as a non-PDP member.

According to Olafeso, Otunba Adewale is not a PDP member but a member of Action Democratic Party (ADP), recalling in the petition that he (Adewale) was a gubernatorial candidate of ADP in the 2018 governorship poll in Ekiti State and listed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as no 5 on the list of contestants.

“Our attention has been drawn to the purported claim to the office of the Lagos State chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by one Segun Adewale (aka Aeroland).

“We wish to categorically state without fear or favour that the said impostor, Segun Adewale, is not a member of our party.

“It might interest you to know that this individual is the gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the 2018 Governorship election of Ekiti State, and we do not have a record of him decamping to our party, either in Lagos State or any other state chapter.

“Against the aforementioned, we wish to ask that you use your good office to maintain peace and order by restraining Segun Adewale from having access to the State Headquarters of our party in Lagos State, currently at 56A, Adekunle Fajuyi Way, Ikeja or any other PDP facility,” the PDP zonal chairman said.

While thanking the Lagos State Commissioner, Muazu, and State Director of DSS in the state for their usual cooperation, Olafeso said he or the PDP Zonal Secretary, Bunni Jenyo, could be reached for further details and clarification on the matter in case there was a need for such.

“For further details and clarification, kindly contact the undersigned or the South West Zonal Secretary, Rev. Bunni Jenyo on 08033303543 if need be.

“While thanking you for your usual cooperation, please accept the assurances of our Zonal Working Committee’s (ZWC) highest regards,” the petition concluded.
