The zonal caretaker committee of People’s Democratic Party, Southwest zone, has reversed the decision to suspended Mr. Taiwo Iyiola as the local government chairman of Ibadan North East Local government.
In a letter issued on Tuesday by the Zonal Secretary, Hon Daisi Akintan, the party said it has set aside the decision of the Oyo state working committee on the ground that the committee contravened section 57, sub section 6 of the party’s constitution which states that, “any decision taken against a member who has not been given informed of the charges against him or not been given any opportunity to defend himself shall be null and void”.
It would be recalled that last week, the Oyo state PDP working committee suspended the local government chairman, after alleging him of anti party activities of which he claimed he was not allowed to respond to.
Mr Iyiola, also a loyalist of the embattled Alhaji Adebisi Olopoeyan was then replaced by the Vice Chairman, Mr. Isiaka Fatokun to immediately take over the leadership of the party in Ibadan North East pending the outcome of full investigation.
However, the zonal Working Committee of the party, has ordered an immediate reinstatement of Iyiola in accordance to the party’s constitution under the leadership of his excellency, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
