PDP Tells Babayemi: “Our Party Is Built For Hardworking Democrats, Not Lazy Autocrats.”

Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has told former Governorship Aspirant of the party, Prince Dotun Babayemi to look elsewhere to satisfy his corner-cutting style of politics rather than expecting the PDP to succumb to dangerous illegality in the guise of political settlement or fence mending arrangements.

In a statement issued by the office of the Chairman of the State Caretaker Committee, Dr. Adekunle Akindele, on Sunday, 4th September 2022, the party expressed while reacting to an interview granted by Dotun Babayemi on the issue of his expulsion from the PDP stated that PDP as a political party is founded on democratic principles, laws, and ethos, and therefore cannot subject it’s operations to emotional antics of political nomads like the expelled former member.

The statement reads, “The PDP also described the purported unilateral requests alluded to by Babayemi in his interview as not only laughable but dangerous to the fortunes of the party in the coming general elections.

“That Babayemi could descend to the abyss of expectations of being gifted with proceeds of a democratic exercise, in which he never participated, shows his inclination for cheap roses in the thorny democratic field.

“Asking the PDP to relinquish tickets of duly elected candidates of the party to some unknown individuals in the face of the law and the electoral act without any just cause, was not only strange to PDP as a democratic organization, is akin to destabilizing the party towards the coming elections.

“While peace and democratic culture may be alien to the likes of Prince Babayemi judging by his acrimonious political antecedent, it is however a flamboyant ignorance for anyone to expect the PDP to bend awkwardly to the side of illegality to please his ego or political greed.

“the For the avoidance of doubt, the ward executives of the party who took the lawful decision to remove Babayemi as PDP member in Osun State, are elected officials administering our great party in Otun Balogun ward 2, in Ayedaade local government, are elected officials, empowered on statutory duties, including enforcement of party discipline.

“The PDP enjoins teeming party members to remain focused on their support for the Governor-Elect of the State, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke as he thrives to channel his energy and apparatus of government for the wellbeing of the masses of Osun State.
