A former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has said the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party may signal the end of the country’s ruling party.
Oyinlola said this against the background of the refusal of the leadership of the party to obey the Court of Appeal judgment that reinstated him as the National Secretary of the ruling party. The former governor spoke with journalists at his residence in Abuja on Wednesday. He said it was appalling that some people could also ask those aggrieved in the party, including seven governors, to leave the party. The aggrieved governors are Abdulfatah Ahmed(Kwara), Aliyu Wamakko(Sokoto), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Babangia Aliy(Niger), Murtala Nyako(Adamawa), Musa Kwankwaso(Kano) and Sule Lamido(Jigawa). He said, “You have seven governors threatening to leave the PDP and you said it is meaningless if they go. I want to pray and believe that reason will prevail and will bring the crisis to an end. If it is not done, that may mean the end of the PDP as a ruling party. “Somebody, who wants a united family, will not say a member can go to blazes. When the Biblical man, the Shepherd, lost one sheep out of 100, he abandoned 99, to go and look for the lost one. “This is because if one does not join 99, it will never become 100, and now you are talking about seven governors and you say it is meaningless if they go; it is ok.” Read more —> punchng.com
