A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Southwest has warned the party not to stop it from presenting the zone’s delegates to the December 9 national convention.

At a media briefing in Lagos on Monday, the chairman of the faction, Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe said the faction remained the authentic executive in the zone, based on a subsisting court judgment.

Ogundipe said the continued recognition of the Dr Eddy Olafeso-led faction ran foul of the law, as there had been no superior order to nullify the subsisting Abuja court order.

“Any other group parading themselves as EXCO from the zone is committing an illegality as there has been no judgment to nullify the court judgment affirming us as the authentic executive.

“Moreso, the subsisting court order restrained Olafeso and his group from participating in the December 9 national convention.

“We do not want to constitute any problem to the convention and that is why we are saying the party should operate in accordance with the law and allow us to present delegates from the zone.

“In the event that we are excluded, just as we were at the non-elective convention in Port-Harcourt, we shall take the necessary legal action, and that will affect the party in the long run,” he warned.

Ogundipe said the Supreme Court judgment affirming Senator Ahmed Makarfi as National Caretaker Chairman of the party did not nullify the leadership of his faction in the zone.

He urged all stakeholders to abide by the rule of law in order not to jeopardise the progress of the party.

Ogundipe cleared Chief Olabode George of the leadership impasse in the zone.

He said that George and other leaders in the zone had resolved to prevail on the national leadership of the party to address “the potential landmine” in the zone.

Ogundipe said his group would continue to do its best for the progress of the party in the zone.

He said an all-encompassing meeting of stakeholders in the zone, including national chairmanship aspirants would soon hold to decide a united position of the zone on the convention. (NAN)
