Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party who were loyal to the sacked National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, have vowed to stay put and work for the party no matter the circumstances that arise. They said that they had never joined the Mega Party of Nigeria, saying they would continue to work ahead of the 2018 governorship election while awaiting the state’s Court of Appeal’s decision on the factions in the state. This was made known at a meeting held by PDP Elders Forum and hosted by the first state party chairman, Chief Clement Awoyelu.Among the personalities that attended the meeting were a former House of Representatives member, Mrs. Titilayo Akindahunsi; a former PDP state Secretary, Dr. Tope Aluko; a former Secretary to the State Government, Chief Dare Bejide; a factional PDP state Chairman, Chief William Ajayi; Mr. Toyin Obayemi; Dr. Kunle Folayan and Elder Martins Ibikunle, among others. Speaking with reporters at the end of the meeting attended mainly by PDP members loyal to Sheriff, Awoyelu said the forum was formed to refocus, reshape and reposition the party as an election-winning platform. Aluko described members of the group as “formidable individuals” who had won various elections under the umbrella of the party, saying affirmation of Senator Ahmed Makarfi by the Supreme Court was a new beginning. “We are united and we will deliver Ekiti for PDP again in 2018.” “We urge our members to remain in the party irrespective of whatever circumstance. It is not true that some of our members have defected to Mega Party of Nigeria,” Bejide added.Photo Credit: Getty
