A group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun, Unity Group, led by Hon Gbemi Olufiade has declared that the party leadership is digging its grave in the state.
It said, the allegation of the embezzlement of N150 million against the embattled Chairman, Hon Olasoji Adagunodo was false, saying the said fund never existed.
It would be recalled that Adagunodo was suspended for alleged anti party, malfeasance and maladministration.
Addressing a press conference in Osogbo on Tuesday, Olufiade noted that there was no time such money was released from the National Headquarters or Osun State Chapter of the party for campaign during the last gubernatorial election in which Senator Ademola Adeleke was the party candidate.
He challenged the elder brother of Ademola Adeleke, Dr Deji Adeleke and National Headquarters of the party to clarify the issue if any fund was released to them during the campaign, saying that these allegations are baseless and a ploy to give the state Chairman a bad name.
Olufiade advised the acting Chairman of the party , Elder Sunday Atidade, and his working Committee members to be neutral, noting that they are already acting as part of the problem by taking sides and acting as a factional party of Ede PDP.
He also enjoined them to look at how the party will move forward and improve upon their performance of September 22, 2018, saying that it would be funny for both National Working Committee and Executive members of the party to think that they can be exonerated of whatever allegations leveled against Adagunodo.
He therefore, urged party members to rally round Adagunodo and should not allow PDP to die and loose coming election in 2022 and beyond.
