The Ogun State chapter of the CPC says it will not rescind its decision to suspend its chairman.
The Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, in Ogun State has declared that it would not rescind its decision to suspend its chairman, Kunle Mudashiru ; and Sina Oduntan, the former Public Relations Officer of the party.
The party made the declaration on Tuesday at its state secretariat, located at Moshood Abiola Way, Abeokuta, in reaction to the party’s national headquarters rejection of the suspension order.
The meeting which comprised fourteen state executives; a former governorship candidate of the party, Wale Okunniyi; and members of the party resolved to stick to the suspension order.
Addressing a press conference after the meeting to review statement credited to the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Rotimi Fasakin, the CPC secretary at the state, Godwin Odeyemi, emphasised that until the suspended officials are remorseful, they would not be considered for re-absorption into the party.
The party also accused its South-West Zonal Chairman, Rasaq Muse, of conniving with the suspended chairman to destabilise the party in the state, insisting that such act and action would not be entertained.
He said the party had already set up a committee headed by Taofeek Lawal to investigate the suspended chairman. The state chapter of the party insisted that Mr. Mudashiru will be allowed to return to return to office until he is cleared by the panel.
“It is on record that the suspended chairman has been going about along with Sina Oduntan, the appointed public relations officer, to dubiously collect money from innocent people with the name of the party, we cannot continue to behave like beggars, enough is enough.
“This is the same man who is the sole administrator of the party bank cheques, the party treasurer does not have access to the party account nor the cheque books, he cannot even receive alert from the bank on transactions,” the party stated
“The suspended chairman is a stooge of our zonal chairman, who is responsible for the Ogun CPC crisis. I can say without mincing words that he remains suspended until he turns a new leaf,” Mr. Odeyemi said.
Ogun CPC held that the new acting chairman, Talabi Akinbile, remains the authorised leader in the state who they have resolved to pledge their loyalty to.
The party said arrangements were ongoing to meet the national leadership of the party on the issue, and explain its actions to them.
