THE Peoples Democratic Party, Ogun State chapter, has cleared the air over the alleged resignation of the state chairman of the party, Bayo Dayo.
The state deputy chairman of the party, Samson Bamgbose insisted that Dayo remains the party’s chairman in the state and that the party remains intact.
Bamgbose stated this on Tuesday, while briefing newsmen after the inauguration of four new members of the state executive of the party.
The new members of the executive who filled the four vacancies in the party at the state level were; Olusegun Awoyomi as State Organising Secretary; Adewunmi Alabi as Women Leader; Nike Ejioye as Deputy Women Leader; and Sunkanmi Oyejide as Publicity Secretary.
There had been insinuations that the chairman of the party in the state had tendered a letter of resignation due to an alleged misunderstanding between him and Senator Buruji Kashamu.
He described the allegation as baseless while explaining that the chairman had been out of the country for medical reasons.
He said, “Engineer Bayo Dayo remains the chairman of this party till tomorrow. He travelled to America a few weeks ago for medical attention and would be back any moment.
“He is part and parcel of this exco, no shaking. That is a toothless rumour.
“He has never tendered any letter of resignation. I talked to my chairman last night (Sunday night). I know my chairman remains my chairman and he would be back any moment.” – Punch
