The State Working Committee (SWC) of the opposition party in Ondo State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has suspended Fatai Adams, the Chairman of the party.

The decision was made due to Adams’ alleged anti-party activities and the supposed infiltration of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) into the PDP.

The suspension letter, which was signed by nine SWC members, including the State Deputy Chairman, Tola Alabere, Secretary, Oluseye Olujim, and Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei, stated that Adams’ actions could damage the reputation of the PDP in the state.

Others that signed the letter include the organising secretary, Engr. Dare Akinwale; the state vice chairman (South), Elder Amos Fadope; the state vice chairman (Central), Hon. Dayo Awude; the legal adviser, Moses Awofade; the financial secretary, Hon. Boluwaji Hamidele; and Hon. Olawumi Fasonu, who is the treasurer.

The party also mentioned that they suspended him according to the rules stated in the party’s constitution.

After suspending Adams, he was given a one-week deadline to attend the party’s disciplinary committee and present his defence against the allegations made against him.

“Pursuant to Section 58(1b. c, f. h. and i) of the PDP Constitution as amended in 2017, the State Working Committee has approved the suspension of the State Chairman, Mr Fatai Adams, for anti-party activities and for engaging in activities likely to bring the party into disrepute.”
