…Says Organisers Lack Credibility
The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will not be part of a proposed rally planned for Ibadan, Oyo State, as it organisers lack the mandate to do so.
The Ekiti PDP, in a statement by the State Publicity Secretary, Pastor Kola Oluwawole, in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday, said the planned rally/meeting did not have the blessing of the leadership of the party in the Southwest geo-political zone.
“Therefore, we are calling on the leaders and members of our party in Ekiti State to shun the particular rally slated by the organiser for tomorrow, Saturday August 23, 2014 in Ibadan.
“We the entire leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State hereby declare that we are totally and unreservedly committed to the administration of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and his second term agenda because of his outstanding performance.
“However, we are dissociating ourselves from the so-called proposed meeting/rally in support of President Jonathan’s second term ambition because the planned meeting/ rally has not received the consent or blessings of leaders of the PDP in South-West,” the party said.
The Ekiti PDP noted that it was opting out of the event because the planners and their collaborators only wanted to use the opportunity to achieve cheap political gain.
It wondered why such an important event would be planned without due consultation of the party leaders in the zone.
“Therefore, we leaders and members of our great party have resolved to collaborate with leaders of our party in the South-West to organise a befitting rally and to heavily mobilise the entire members of PDP in Ekiti State to the venue of the programme which will equally attract all important leaders and members of PDP in the South-West to pledge their support for the re-election of our dear President.
It added that the date of the rally and venue would be announced soon.
