The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Adewole ward of Ilorin West Local Government has expelled four of its members and suspended five others over alleged anti party activities.
The development, according to THISDAY checks, might not be unconnected with the next elections in the state.
However, their expulsions and suspensions were contained in a letter dated December 27, 2021 and signed by the ward chairman and secretary, Alhaji Abdulkadir Issa and Alhaji Saad Agbabiaka respectively and made available to journalists yesterday in Ilorin.
According to the letter titled “Approval for Suspension and Explosion of Disgruntled Members”, the party’s action followed a letter of complaints which recommended disciplinary actions against them by their respective ward’s party organs.
The expelled members are: Mr Nureni Omoyooba, Yakubu Agodi, Alao Hakeem and Tunde Muhibudeen, while those suspended included: Musbau Agodi, Tunde Odo, Tunde Khalifa, Alagbon Fatimoh and Moshood Elere.
“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 others offences.”
“They were fairly tried and found culpable of series of anti party allegations that warranted disciplinary actions as enshrined in the party’s constitution,”the letter added.
The affected members were therefore advised to stop parading themselves as party members or be faced with full wrath of law.
