Few hours to election, PDP suspends Abati, Atiku's spokesperson and 37 others

A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, led by Sikirulahi Ogundele, has suspended the deputy governorship candidate of another faction in the state, Reuben Abati.

Also suspended was the spokesperson of Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi and 37 members of the party loyal to Kashamu for alleged anti-party activities.

The suspension was announced on Thursday by the faction loyal to a member of the House of Representatives, Oladipupo Adebutu.

Abati who is the running mate to Buruji Kashamu was, alongside others, supended after failing to appear before the ward and local executive committees.

Ogundele, in a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta said, “The suspension is at the instance of the ward and local executive committees which noted that affected members failed to appear before them and also did not respond to queries served on them.

“Recall that similar disciplinary action was taken on Senator Buruji Kashamu, Prince Bayo Dayo, Segun Seriki and Semiu Sodipo.

“The decision to suspend the affected members was ratified at a state meeting of the party held at Legacy House, Onikolobo, Abeokuta and contained in a communiqué signed by the Chairman of the party, Hon. Sikirulahi Ogundele.”
