Osun PDP Expels Dotun Babayemi After Supreme Court Ruling
After the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ademola Adeleke as the party’s candidate in the gubernatorial primary election, the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State expelled Dotun Babayemi.
In his appeal against the PDP gubernatorial primary election that produced Adeleke, Babayemi sought the court’s intervention.
This comes as the party also praised the judiciary for upholding its role as the house of justice.
The party disclosed that Babayemi had ceased to be a member of the PDP in a press statement signed by Adekunle Akindele, the Osun PDP caretaker chairman, on Thursday in Osogbo.
The party also warned against the expelled politician being accommodated in PDP matters.
The statement added that “As we are rejoicing, we must note very strongly that a mole among us who was an active agent of the APC had since lost his membership of PDP. No organ or affiliates of the party should accommodate him or his agenda again within this party.
“Any member of the party who continues to romance the expelled member risks being charged with anti-party activities and may face appropriate sanctions. We must get rid of fifth columnists by descending heavily on them. We must uproot them and cut down their branches”, the party Chairman stated.
