PDP Ajeromi-Ifelodu LGA executives apologize to party’s hierarchy

The newly elected executives of Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP)  Ajeromi- Ifelodun Chapter  under the leadership of Apostle Mathew Abogunde has apologized to the leadership of the party both at the state and national level.  This apology is coming on the heels of  a fracas caused by some aggrieved members to sabotage the peaceful conduct of the party’s  State congress recently  at Tafawa Belawa Square,TBS,Lagos.

A statement from the party signed by Hon Chinedu Ezeugha, the Chapter’s  publicity secretary, read thus, ‘We note with concern that one Mrs Yemisi, the newly elected Ward A Chairman AJIF LGA was  physically assaulted by two individuals from Ajif LGA in the full glare of party stalwarts, delegates, leaders and elders present.

The sponsor of those thugs later called his boys to order, admonished them seriously and publicly apologised to Mrs Yemisi and we all breathed a sigh of relief . But  this  was just a tip of the iceberg as Mrs Yemisi was not their main target.

The arrival of  Hon Rita  Boluwatife Orji led some of the party’s delegates and members from the 20 LGA’s of the state to start singing her praises.

This open show of love for the former House of Representatives Ajegunle infuriated some of the PDP members that were present and they sent out their thugs to go and brutalize innocent party stalwarts. At the end of the mayhem some people sustained injuries. Chairs, canopies and other equipment were destroyed. 

The unfortunate incident led to the cancellation and postponement of the Lagos State PDP party congress”, the statement said.

It further explained that Ajeromi_Ifelodun PDP faithfuls are very peaceful individuals as evidenced in the very peaceful Ward and LGA party congresses conducted across the local government.    “We will not allow a handful of thugs purportedly sponsored by agents of APC to deprive us of the peace we enjoy at Ajeromi_Ifelodun LGA”.

“The party executives at Ajeromi/Ifelodun LGA promised to assist security agents in fishing out these thugs and every legal means to ensure perpetrators are punished.

It further said, “Once again, we apologize to every peace loving member of PDP  AJIF LGA, Lagos State and National PDP “.
