Ogun PDP Moves To End Disputed Primaries Litigation, Ahead Of 2023
Ogun State PDP says it is reaching out to all its aggrieved leaders to end disputed primaries litigation so that the party will go into the 2023 polls as a united family.
The State PDP chairman, Sikirulahi Ogundele, who gave this indication said that the State Executive Committee has been sending emissaries to appease those who were aggrieved.
Ogundele, speaking to a Rockcity FM correspondent, Tobi Ojeleye, said the initiative was already yielding fruit.
He said that the state exco was working on how to convince a Governorship Aspirant, Otunba Jimi Lawal to withdraw its pending litigation against the party over the disputed primaries.
According to Ogundele, a team of credible leaders had been constituted to meet Jimi Lawal on the issue.

The PDP Chairman also said that Otunba Segun Sowunmi, a governorship aspirant, who filed several suits against the State Executive committee over the disputed PDP primaries, had agreed to withdraw them from courts.
Ogundele said that another aggrieved leader which he did not mention his name had also withdrawn its cases against the state exco from courts.
He explained that the initiative was part of his pledge to run an all inclusive PDP in the state, adding that posts have been shared among leaders to give them a sense of belonging to the party, ahead of the 2023 Polls.
Ogundele recalled that Ogun State PDP before the protracted leadership crisis split it into factions, used to get 800,000 votes during the Governorship Poll.
