The crisis in the Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have take a new turn over the newly released harmonised list of the State Executive Council (SEC) of the party.
The Nation reported that the new list which was released by the national leadership on Tuesday, “was said to have jolted the Senator Rashidi Ladoja faction”.
It was reported that the national leadership of the party took the decision to ensure that party members have a sense of belonging.
But the decision, according to the medium, reportedly jolted the Ladoja faction so much.
The Nation also learnt that their leaders have decided to pull out and join a neutral party ahead of next year’s election.
Recall that Senator Ladoja pulled out of the PDP early 2011 to re-contest the governorship election under Accord party.
He returned with his supporters last year during the reconciliation led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Transition Committee.
It was gathered that the party leaders will meet today in Ibadan where the former governor is expected to announce his faction’s defection.
A source said Ladoja and his supporters are of the view that PDP’s national leadership cannot be trusted because of the singular decision to adjust the result of his faction’s congress without his approval.
Efforts to get Ladoja’s comments were unsuccessful.
