The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leadership in Adewole Ward in Ilorin West Local Government Area of Kwara State has expelled four members of the party and suspended five others over alleged anti-party activities. 

This was contained in a letter dated December 27, 2021, and signed by the ward chairman and secretary, Alhaji Abdulkadir Issa and Alhaji Saad Agbabiaka respectively.

According to the letter, Nureni Omoyooba, Yakubu Agodi, Alao Hakeem and Tunde Muhibudeen were expelled from the party while Musbau Agodi, Tunde Odo, Tunde Khalifa, Alagbon Fatimoh and Moshood Elere were suspended.

The letter was titled, “Approval for suspension and expulsion of disgruntled members.”

Part of the letter reads; “The nine members after being tried at their respective ward levels were found guilty of gross misconducts, crude and disparaging commentaries against the party especially on several radio stations and disrespect to constituted authorities of the party among other offences.

“They were fairly tried and found culpable of a series of anti-party allegations that warranted disciplinary actions as enshrined in the party’s constitution.” 

According to the letter, the affected members were also advised to stop parading themselves as party members or face the full wrath of the law.

One of the affected members, Omoyooba, who confirmed the development, told Daily Trust that they will meet to decide the next line of action.

In October, he (Omoyooba) had led others in protest to condemn an alleged attempt by the state leadership of the party to “perpetrate impunity” regarding the last PDP congress in the state.
