The faction was deemed authentic by the National Working Committee of the PDP against Obasanjo’s loyalist.
The party Chairman, Bayo Dayo, and other executives were led by the police into the secretariat located along Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta at about 2.00pm.
It would be recalled that the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party recently recognised the faction as the authentic one against the faction loyal to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The NWC based its action on a court judgement which favoured the Dayo Bayo-led executive of the party, affirming it as the authentic executive.
“We are piloted here by the police. We are now here for business and this is time for reality. We got here about 2 p.m. Mr. Dayo said.
Soon after arriving at the secretariat, the party chairman in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES said renovation will start on the building in earnest.
He alleged that the former occupants of the secretariat had ‘vandalised’ the place, hence, a need for the executive to see to the immediate renovation of the entire premises.
“Many of the items and properties here have been vandalised, broken doors and valuables carted away. By God’s grace we shall start renovation work soon and we hope to start full administrative work by Monday,” Mr. Dayo stated.
Meanwhile, mobile policemen and plain cloth security operatives were seen in strategic positions of the secretariat while the chairman and other party officials engaged in discussions.
