The Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, Osun State chapter has expelled a 2022 governorship aspirant, Prince Dotun Babayemi from the party.
Babayemi who emerged governorship candidate in a parallel congress but did not become PDP flag bearer was alleged of anti-party activities by local executives of PDP.
The Ward Executive members of Otun Balogun 2, Ayedaade local government area of the State made the pronouncement during a press briefing at the State Party secretariat in Osogbo on Friday.
Reading the address on behalf of the Ward EXCO, the Secretary of the Ward, Ogunleye Bukayo said the factional governorship candidate was expelled as a result of a petition filed against him by some party members.
“The Ward Executive Committee of the party at its meeting of 20th July, 2022 received the report of the disciplinary committee, and after careful and extensive deliberations ratified the report of the disciplinary committee.
“The Ward Executive Committee of the Party in exercise of the powers conferred on it by sections 57(2) and 59 (1) (g) of the constitution of PDP hereby remove and expel Prince Dotun Babayemi from the Peoples Democratic Party. He therefore ceases to be a member of the PDP henceforth.”
Babayemi had been looking for ways to get court Judgement to nullify the primary election that produced Senator Ademola Adeleke,as the gubernatorial candidate of the party.
Babayemi’s lost his cases at the state high court including an appeal court.
He, however, has headed to the supreme court to seek redress for his case against Senator Ademola Adeleke.
However, the Kayode Oladeji, spokesperson of his campaign organisation while reacting described those who carried out the expulsion of Babayemi as jesters who enjoy amusing themselves.
Oladeji said: “Those who carried out the shenanigans they called expulsion of Omooba Dotun Babayemi from the PDP, are ignorant of the rules that govern the party.
“They and their sponsors are only being clever by half in their bid to browbeat Babayemi, a man of the people.They are jesters who enjoy amusing themselves.
