The Peoples Democratic Party chairman, Osun State chapter, Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo has alerted members of the party in Osun State that he is still the Chairman of the party because he has not been issued any official letter from the National Secretariat of the party.
Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo who made this statement on Sunday, stated that status quo ante remains because social media news which source is still shrouded in secrecy cannot be taken serious.
In his words the Osun PDP boss declared “my dear party members, leaders and the general public, I find it necessary to write you again on my purported stepping aside from the office of PDP State Chairman and state that as at the time of this release I have not received any official letter from the National Headquarters of the Party, I only read it on the social media as you all did.”
Hon. Adagunodo further stated that, “also in the purported letter, it was alleged that some of my colleagues wrote a petition against me, I also want you to know that I am not aware of any such petition. I wish to let you know that I have responded to the only petition which I was served with and the fact finding panel that came to investigate the matter found my defense useful.”
Based on the foregoing, I wish to state as follows:
1. That up till now nobody has been appointed as acting Chairman officially, if any let the person make available the original copy of his letter of appointment upon which he intends to assume office.
2. That the PDP members in Osun state are hereby advised to ignore the purported letter in circulation as no official communication from National headquarters had reached me.
3. That the Nigerian Security Agencies are hereby placed on notice to act promptly against any forceful attempt to take over the Osun State PDP Secretariat to avoid breakdown of law and order
4. That members of the public are also advised to disregard any purported letter asking me to step aside.
Once again I thank you all for your support and prayers. God bless you all.” Adagunodo conclude.
