JUST IN: Lagos PDP Denies Suspending Party Chair


Lagos PDP Denies Suspending Party Chair

The Lagos State PDP has denied suspending its party chairman.

THE PUNCH reports that members of the executive council of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ward E, Badagry Local Government Area of Lagos State, have denied the letter which purportedly suspended the state party chairman, Philip Aivoji.

This was disclosed in a press statement jointly signed by the ward chairman, Jamiu Boglo, and the secretary, Mr Homakon Mautin, and other members of the ward executive council on Saturday.

They described the letter as fake and malicious, warning those behind it to desist from such as their action had criminal implications.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a malicious and false letter purportedly from the executive council members of Ward E, Keta-West, Badagry Local Government Area of Lagos State, suspending the party’s state chairman, Honourable Philip Olabode Aivoji, and we were surprised to read such a letter in the media.

“We the incumbent and the authentic Ward E exco members of Keta-West, Badagry Local Government Area, whose names appeared on the said letter of suspension, but whose signatures were forged, hereby unequivocally refute signing of any letter of suspension.”

The statement also called on the Department of State Services, the police, and other security operatives to investigate and unmask those behind the writing and forgery of the signatures of the ward E executives.”
