Ogun PDP Optimistic It Will Contest 2023 Polls Despite Multiple Litigation
Ogun State PDP Chairman, Sikirulahi Ogundele, says he is optimistic that his party despite its lingering leadership crisis, will present candidates for the 2023 polls in the state.
He contends that the suspension of the acting chairman and some other leaders of the party on Tuesday, by the Jimi Lawal faction is an exercise in futility.
Ogundele, speaking to a Rockcity FM correspondent, Tobi Ojeleye, says the Electoral Act 2022, allows the PDP to sort out all issues arising from the ongoing litigation within 90 Days.
He assures that all the issues would be resolved before the expiration of the 90 days.

According to him, the September 27 application filed by the State Executive Committee at the Appeal Court, against the judgement of a Federal High Court, Abeokuta, cancelling all the PDP primary elections, will he heard mid- November, and concluded by end of November.
Ogundele says that the last week’s Monday and last Monday’s expulsion of Jimi Lawal and others was supported by the PDP National Working Committee.
According to him, those suspended were involved in anti-parties activities, and their cases will be handled later.
