Aggrieved members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have passed a vote of no-confidence on the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State citing negligence and failure to fulfil promises made to them as reasons for their action.
At the event which took place on Monday at Jogor Event Centre, Oke-Ado and was attended by Mulikat Akande Adeola, Nureni Akanbi, AbdulRasheed Olopoeyan, Gbolarumi Hazeem, Femi Babalola and a host of others, members drawn from all the 33 local government areas of the state, vowed to ensure they do everything to prevent the emergence of Makinde from getting the party’s ticket for the second term.
The members, who voiced their displeasure, said against the governor’s promise before and during the election, they have been neglected while those who were not around during the election are the ones benefiting from the government.
Saying that they have accepted what has befallen them, the leaders urged members to be prepared for the congress which begins this week.
“Go to your wards, mobilize your people. Don’t fight anybody. Record whatever happens and leave us to do the remaining in Abuja,” Akande-Adeola assured.
Akanbi, who spoke earlier, said “never again would they entrust their destinies in the hands of someone like the incumbent governor”.
