The Court of Appeal judgment had reinstated him as the National Secretary of the party. Oyinlola, was suspended from the PDP by the leadership of the party in Abuja on Monday, alongside Alh. Kawu Baraje and two others for anti-party activities.

Oyinlola informed INEC in a letter with reference number PDP/NS/56 and dated November 11, 2013, that the judgment of the Court of Appeal had invalidated the judgment delivered by Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court in Abuja on January 11, 2013.

He wrote:  “I present to you my warm and sincere compliments. As you may be aware, the Court of Appeal , Abuja Judicial Division has nullified the January 11, 2013 judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja which removed me from office as the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“The directive of the court was implemented by the INEC, which consequently struck out my name off its register and other documents, as the National Secretary of the PDP.

“Following the nullification of the above stated judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja presided by Justice Abdul Kafarati by the Court of Appeal, Abuja, which is a superior court of competent jurisdiction, which also ruled that I was wrongly removed from office as PDP national secretary, this correspondence serves to inform you of my decision to continue to perform my duties as the validly elected national secretary of the PDP.

“Your records would reveal that I was validly elected into office as National Secretary at the national convention of the PDP held on Saturday, March 24, 2012.”

In the letter, he maintained that the constitution of the party empowers him to be the sole signatory to letters emanating from the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party.
