…….Calls for Ekiti PDP SWC resignation
Ekiti Grassroots Movement (EGM) has blasted the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) State Working Committee under the leadership of Barrister Gboyega Oguntuase over the murder of Mr. Dotun Kosedake in Ikere Ekiti on Saturday, during the local government elections, saying the PDP chairman and his ilk in the SWC were only shedding crocodile tears.
Dotun Kosedake was shot dead by thugs led by one Dele OPC, while three others, Ayeni Olumide (Salvation), Ayeni Gbenga (Special) and Abiodun Bukola sustained gunshots injuries and were rushed to the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti.
Reacting to the 7-day mourning declared by Oguntuase, EGM Publicity Secretary, Comrade Adebisi Adeola called on well meaning party faithful to demand an unreserved apology from the PDP state chairman for leading the party to a war out of his selfish interest.
EGM said the Oguntuase led-Exco should take responsibility for the casualties recorded during the predetermined local council elections and the humiliation of the party by the APC.
“Chief Oguntuase should be held responsible for the death of Dotun Kosedake and others who sustained injuries during the election.
“Information at our disposal confirmed that Oguntuase led-Exco had collected the sun of N200 million from Governor Kayode Fayemi to ensure participation of the PDP in the predetermined council election so as to give it credibility.
“While we sympathize with the families of Dotun who was killed by thugs and other victims, who sustained various degrees of injuries, it is our demand that the National Working Committee of the party should investigate the rationale behind leading the party to such suicide mission.
“In all indications, the present State Working Committee of PDP in Ekiti has failed in its responsibilities, hence, Oguntuase and his Exco should resign with immediate effect,” EGM said.
