Time to Sheath Our Swords In Ekiti PDP– Bisi Kolawole
Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Chief Bisi Kolawole, has again called on party leaders in the state to eschew animosity, let go of internal bickering and allow the party move forward in the overall interest of the people.
He made the call in reaction to a judgment delivered, today, by Justice Bamidele Omotoso of the State High Court, Ado-Ekiti, in a suit filed against the local government and state congresses of the party by one Ayo Ibikunle and two others on behalf of the Senator Abiodun Olujimi-led Repositioning Group.
Delivering judgement in case number HAD/83/2020, Justice Omotoso had said the claimants did not prove that there were two congresses committee sent by the PDP National Working Committee.
He adduced further that exhibit attached to first and second defendants clearly showed that the set of executives that emerged at the Petim Hotel, Ado-Ekiti, as directed by the party, is most appropriate.
Justice Omotoso ruled that the declaratory relief sought by claimants were speculative and not proved, hence the claimants’ case not justiciable and also awarded a N50,000 fine against the claimants in favour of the defendants.
Chief Kolawole, who described the court verdict as victory for all members of the PDP, appealed to leaders of the party to sheath their swords and join hands with others in leading the party back to government next year.
“I call on my brothers and friends, especially Senator Biodun Olujimi, Senator Duro Faseyi, Honourable Kehinde Odebunmi, Rt. Hon Tunji Odeyemi and Chief Yinka Akerele, among others, to give peace a chance in the interest of our teeming party members and the entire people of Ekiti.
“The time to war-war is over; it is time to jaw-jaw in the interest of Ekiti people whose hope remains the Peoples Democratic Party,” the Ekiti PDP chairman said.
