Police take over Ekiti PDP office
The police have taken over the secretariat of the PDP in Ekiti State.
Sources said the action was in order to avoid crisis as some stakeholders of the party, led by a member of the state caucus and former secretary of the party, Dr. Tope Aluko, had allegedly chased out some officials and workers from their offices.
Aluko, while speaking with journalists, alleged that some State Working Committee (SWC) members of the party were carrying out nefarious activities by withdrawing millions of naira from the party’s account.
Already, the party’s secretariat had been taken over by the police following the action of the stakeholders, waiting for further directives from the leaders of the party including ex-governor Peter Ayo Fayose, Senator Biodun Olujimi, Senator Duro Faseyi and Senator Clement Awoyelu.
Aluko explained that some concerned members of the party in the state decided to pursue the lock up operation in order to save the party from going into extinction and to prepare it ahead of the 2019 general elections.
