I Am Still the PDP Secretary – Oyinlola


Olagunsoye Oyinlola has declared that he remains the national secretary of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The ex-Governor of Osun state, made this claim while speaking to the journalists in Abuja on November 13, 2013, Wednesday.
Mr. Oyinlola also accused the PDP of seeking to ridicule the judiciary by refusing to obey a ruling of the Court of Appeal reinstating him to his post as secretary.

“I am happy to stress that by the combined effects of the judgment of the Court of Appeal and the provisions of the constitution of our party (particularly section 57), I, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola remain the National Secretary of the PDP – except and until the Supreme Court says otherwise,” he said.
Mr. Oyinlola further added that “any other contraption from Tukur’s [National Working Committee] is illegal, null and void.”
“Simply put, disobedience of the ruling of a properly constituted law court leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Gentlemen of the press, no condition is permanent. That is why we all must fear the Creator in our dealings with fellow human beings. And like I have always maintained, the path of truth may be long, arrival at its destination is, however, definite.
“I am a law-abiding citizen and will always submit to the law. That was why I appealed Justice Kafarati’s verdict. I urge my traducers to also endeavor to have faith in the law and in the judiciary. If they are not satisfied with what the Court of Appeal said on Oyinlola, they have the Supreme Court to approach,” the former Governor of Osun state concluded.
