Just as they dissociate themselves from the court proceeding instituted by the National chairman against the National Assembly
This was part of the resolution of the zonal meeting held in Ibadan , Oyo state capital
Although Oyo state chapter was not part of the decision but other state including Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo and Osun supported the move.
Addressing journalists at the end of the meeting , Otunba Olusegun Fanibe, Chairman Osun state who spoke on behalf of other states said the chairman of contravene the party law by engaging in act that brought disrepute and public embarrassment to the party by unilaterally taken National Assembly to court without any consultation or approval from the National Working Committee “
‘Secondly he engage in anti-party activities by collecting money from the All Progressives Congress APC to pay the rent of the National secretariat and he confirmed that himself because we knew we haven’t pay for the party secretariat for some time ”
“ Also ,the national chairman of this party posted the poster of himself as an aspirant for a vacant senatorial seat in kastina state without putting the party logo giving the impression that he intent to contest election not on the platform of Accord that he is made the chairman and he is currently working towards that to be candidate of another party”
We have been on this issue for three weeks, we invited him but for some reasons he has been avoiding us, he has been giving one excuse or the other, even that is against the constitution of the party because as a chairman he is supposed to be in control but our chairman has been in disarray and that is why we resolve to this step, hopefully he will respond to this and do the needful
” Our chairman is from Daura, very close to Mr President, and also an in-law to the president so I don’t think he would want to work against his kinsman, every effort by all stakeholders to move the party forward is being blocked and we think this is the time the southwest take a step’’
The also threaten to quit the party if the chairman of the party did not call an emergency meeting of to review the allegations levelled against him with the view of setting up a committee and recommended sanction according to the dictates of the party
“The National chairman must resign, we want him to resign within seven days or in the alternative call for an NWC ,meeting during which we shall set up a seven man disciplinary committee to investigate the allegation and recommended appropriate sanction in accordance to the constitution of the party.”
