The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Dr Olu Agunloye, has been suspended over alleged anti-party activities.
Naija News reports that Agunloye was suspended by the Ondo State chapter of the party in a letter dated March 28, titled ‘Letter of Ratification of the Suspension of Dr Olu Agunloye’.
In the suspension letter, Agunloye was accused of bringing non-party members into the party to cause confusion and disturb the functions of the party executives at both state and local government levels.
The letter was signed by the party’s Chairman and Secretary in Akoko North West Local Government Area of the state, Moses Aribisala and Olorunfemi Festus respectively.
According to the letter, Agunloye was suspended from his ward (ward 10) in Ondo state, following a resolution after a meeting of the ward executive members.
The letter said the suspension of the national chairman is in accordance with Section 19, sub-section 7 of the 2018 Constitution of the SDP.
It reads: “In line with Section 19, sub-section 7 of the 2018 Constitution of the SDP, and on behalf of the good people of Akoko North West where Dr Olu Agunloye comes from, we write to ratify his suspension as a member of the party.
“Olu Agunloye is grossly fond of anti-party activities, of bringing non-party members into the party to usurp the functions of the party executives at both state and local government levels, with the aim of causing confusion within the party, as evident in the aborted Friday, 9th April 2022 congress election.
“Dr Agunloye, in his style, approaches, utterances and actions, has always been promoting the factionalisation of the party through direct administration of the affairs of the party in the local government and some other wards that are at the verge of collapsing as a result of divide and rule system of the National Chairman.”
