Ekiti PDP has finally dug itself into a horrible hole - By Karounwi Oladapo
Today, May 11, 2020, the Caretaker committees appointed to manage Ekiti PDP for the next 3 months will resume duty. For a start, I want to say that the Committee will certainly spend more than 3 months in Office. Mark my words!
The National body of the PDP has handed over the management of Ekiti PDP to Oyo and Osun States respectively ; the Caretaker Chairman is from Oyo State while the Caretaker Secretary is from Osun State. The PDP National body couldn't find any trusted and capable PDP figures in Ekiti to manage the Party affairs in the interim in Ekiti State. This is very demeaning and not eddyfing! Anyway this is the worth of Ekiti PDP before the PDP National hierarchy.
The PDP Wards executives just inaugurated in multiple factions are before the Federal High Court for resolution and until the court decides, one way or another, the legitimate Wards Excos that are supposed to constitute the Local Government congress for the elections of PDP leaders at the Local Government level will tarry, except the Party decides to be contemptuous of Court process. The same applies to the State Congress. The matter that hasn't taken off at the Federal high Court, and that is bound to get to the Supreme Court, Can the resolution be achieved and congresses concluded within 3 months, even if the Lockdown is lifted today? Your guess is as good as mine.
The Caretaker Committees and the subjugation of Ekiti PDP under the rulership of Oyo and Osun will remain beyond 3 months, except miracle happens and the suits are withdrawn from the Court for a Political solution, which I doubt much.
Are you asking me what concerns me about Ekiti PDP matters?
Take these :
1. As a member of the APC ruling Party, I take pleasure in the misfortune of the opposition Parties, especially the PDP. I am wired to create problems for the opposition even if the opposition is at peace with itself.
This will insulate my Party, APC, from unnecessary distractions and allow it consolidate its hold on Power and delivers measurable and tangible services to the good People of Ekiti State and make life more abundant for them.
2. I have personal axe to grind with Ekiti PDP that brazenly robbed me of my House of Representatives victory at gun point in 2007 General Elections and went further to manipulate the Elections Petition Tribunal against me! A certain PDP Governor deployed Ekiti resources against my Personal modest savings during the struggles. I almost became a wreck at the time. My loss was PDP gain in 2007. Therefore, Ekiti PDP misfortune is a thing of joy to me. I am certainly enjoying the PDP music as it's currently playing. Dancing galore !
And to those that just defected from Ekiti APC to PDP, you are warmly welcome to your new Ekiti PDP house of commotion. Jumping from frying pan to fire. Ile atura o! Amin.
Although some, who haven't made reckless Public statements against Ekiti APC and its Leadership, have cleverly retraced their steps back to APC when they discovered that Ekiti PDP was a hell. Orun mooru.!!!! Omo odo naa fi ogbon se ! Still laughing.
Finally, I will encourage those who can no longer stand the heat in Ekiti PDP to come over to APC. We will be happy to welcome you. We are very peaceful, organized and accommodating. The more, the merrier for us in APC. Ka rin Ka po, yiye lon ye ni. E se pupo.
