The State Working Committee of the Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party led by the chairman, Hon. Sunday Bisi earlier today received in the audience some supporters of a former stalwart of the party, Prince Dotun Babayemi in Ayedaade local government, who came to reunite with the mainstream structure of the party.
While commending the state Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke for his outstanding performance within the short period of his administration, the erstwhile Babayemi supporters regretted their actions against the party which they recalled, nearly marred the very bright chances of the party in the July 16 2022 governorship election.
The returnee members also commended the unrelenting efforts of Hon. Sunday Bisi at repositioning the PDP as a disciplined ruling party, which they described as the only way out in a fast-growing political awareness level of the populace.
“We also appreciate and commend the lawmaker representing Ayedaade state constituency, Hon. Folorunso Ogundare Foley as well as the newly inaugurated caretaker chairperson in the local government, Hon Mrs. Felicia Adeniran, Commissioner for Culture and Tourism Hon. Abiodun Ojo FAFA for their good start in their respective offices. The repentant members said.
Speaking at the brief event, Hon. Sunday Bisi assured the members of fairness and equity in the affairs of the party. The chairman pointedly charged leaders and other members of the party in Ayedaade local government to welcome and integrate the returnees with open arms devoid of any form of discrimination.
Among the former Babayemi supporters received at the state party secretariat include former state officer of the party, Alhaji Aliyu Adeyanju, immediate past organizing secretary in the local government, Hon. Mayowa Adeboye, former PDP secretary in the local government, Hon. Solomon Ajayi a.k.a Blessing and the former PDP youth leader in the local government, Hon. Muniru Adekunle.
The House of Assembly member from the local government, Hon. Folorunso Ogundare, the PDP State Legal Adviser, Barrister Ebenezer Bolarinwa, and Hon. Adeyemo Fatai Alaran accompanied the returnees to the state secretariat of the party in Osogbo.
