Ogun PDP Rejects National Convention Results
The Ogun West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the outcome of the recently conducted elections at the party’s national convention.
Addressing reporters, the chairman of the party in Ogun West, Leye Odunjo, described the convention as a charade and injustice.
Odunjo, who said the result would be challenged in court, also condemned the suspension of Senator Buruji Kashamu (PDP-Ogun East).
He said: "The PDP in Ogun State and for us in Ogun West particularly, our expectations from the December 9,2017 elective convention was very high, because of the urgent need to get rid of Ahmed Makarfi NCC that bastardised and commercialised the party to suit selfish purposes.

"It must be noted that this charade will be tested by the law and the reign of impunity shall be terminated in PDP.
"We in Ogun West PDP regard the purported suspension of the distinguished Senator as the last and desperate action of the failed and better-forgotten Makarfi Caretaker committee.
"We wonder what time the NWC/NEC met at midnight to take such a decision that does not in any way relate to the success or failure of the then impending convention.
"The leaders and party executive from Ogun West Senatorial district hereby resolves and pass a vote of confidence in distinguished Senator Buruji Kashamu as the leader of the PDP in Ogun State."
