The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun state seems to have taken another dimension as the party suspends its State Chairman, Mr. Samson Bamgbose, for anti party activities.
The State Executive Committee of the party at an extra-ordinary meeting held last week Monday suspended Bamgbose alongside some others for anti-party activities.
His suspension was said to be in line with Article 47 (6) of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017).
One Barrister Boladale Sanni from Yewa North Local Government has been appointed as the acting chairman or the main opposition party in the state.
Other suspended Exco members are Chief Kehinde Oladeinde (ex-State Deputy Chairman), Barr. Kunle Bolujoko (ex-Ogun East Senatorial Chairman), Mrs. Bimbo Lanre-Balogun (ex-State Woman Leader), Hon. Sunmola Kayode (ex-Ogun West Senatorial Chairman), Alh. Kola Akinyemi (ex-Ogun Central Senatorial Chairman) and Hon. Alaba Adewunmi (ex-State Auditor).
Bamgbose has immediately been referred to the National Executive Committee of the party for further disciplinary actions while other suspended executive members are to appear before a seven – man disciplinary committee headed by Dr. Remilekun Bakare.
