The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State has asked the national leadership of the party to authenticate the expulsion of Prince Dotun Babayemi.
The State Caretaker Chairman of the PDP, Dr Akindele Adekunle confirmed the development in a statement on Thursday.
The State leadership in a letter to the National Chairman of the Party, Dr Iyorchia Ayu forwarded the disciplinary letter from the Otun Balogun Ward 2 executives, as well as the Caretaker committee of Ayedaade local government which detailed the processes leading to the withdrawal of Babayemi’s party membership in line with relevant provisions of the party’s constitution.
This is coming a week after Babayemi lost out at the Supreme Court and was served an expulsion letter.
Conducted by the statutory leaders of the party at the ward, local and state levels, the reaffirmation spelt out once again the many anti-party activities of Babayemi, the high point of which was his alleged failed collaboration with the All Progressive Congress (APC) to scuttle the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke at the July 16 elections.
Akindele noted that all documentations jave been filed with the national secretariat, making Babayemi’s expulsion a fait accompli.
“We have sealed all the processes. Without any doubt, Babayemi had ceased to be a member of the PDP”, the party Chairman declared.
