Hon Soji Adagunodo

The embattled Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Osun State Chapter on Friday resumed work at the State Secretariat of the party located at KM3, Ikirun Road, BIKET Hospital Junction, Ota-Efun, Osogbo.

The party Secretariat went agog for Adagunodo this morning as his supporters, mainly youths milled around the recently reinstated Chairman of the party chanting the slogan of the party in wild jubilation.

Hon. Adagunodo who granted a brief interview to waiting media men shortly after resuming office this morning said he has come back to make sure that the party is well positioned for a greater task of winning the 2022 governorship election in the state.

When asked if he would be ready to dialogue with other stakeholders who were against his leadership, Adagunodo said people should not mistake the bickering in the party as division but mere conflict of interest which is normal in every political setting which he promised will be resolved soonest.

Adagunodo said he has been consulting leaders of the party since Tuesday when he was reinstated on how to best and the modalities to adopt to move the party forward.

On the present status of the party Secretariat that was rumoured to have been bought by an educational institution, he said, _ab initio,_ the party has always been a tenant and no matter how long it stays in a rented apartment, the ownership of the premises will always determine whether the party will maintain its tenancy there or not. That decision to stay or leave depends on the decision of both parties.

He however, said “consultation is ongoing earnestly on what to do about the tenancy since Educational institutions and Political Parties relationship in terms of operations would be considered and if we meet the new owners and we can come to terms the party will remain and if otherwise, they Party will definitely find an alternative accommodation immediately.”

Adagunodo therefore assured the public that all his State Working Committee and the State Executive members are together, explaining that there was never a time that they had quarrel among themselves.”

When asked further what he would do if the executives disagree with his leadership, Adagunodo said there will be no need for that, assuring that all Executive members will comply with the order of the Court because when he was told to step aside on 30th April, 2020, about 7 months ago he complied fully until all internal mechanism have been exhausted before he finally headed to court as stipulated by the party’s constitution which led to the order of the court that reinstated him.

He said they all played matured politics as stakeholders throughout the period of the imbroglio because their position restrained them from taking sides,” he retorted.

He said PDP leaders and executive members are peace loving people which reflected in his total submission to all the orders given to him from the national headquarters of the party,” he concluded.
