The leadership of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in Ondo State is duty-bound to express displeasure over yesterdays attack and disruption of a meeting of the newly-constituted Caretaker Committee of the party headed by Hon. Dele Ogunbameru. The attack was allegedly orchestrated by Hon. Tajudeen Adefisoye fondly called Small Alhaji, a member of the party, representing the Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency at the Green Chamber of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
No fewer than ten (10) suspected hoodlums stormed the State Secretariat of the Party in Akure at about 1:15PM yesterday to disrupt the hitherto peaceful meeting and destroy some parts of the building. It took the swift efforts of the Nigerian Police Force and other security agents to restore normalcy, while five of the miscreants were arrested and later confessed that they were sent to stop the meeting by Hon. Tajudeen Adefisoye.
The state leadership of our dear party condemns this reprobate display in strong terms as it does not portray what the party stands for. SDP is notable for its peaceful and diplomatic conducts, thus, will not condone any act that can bring it to disrepute.
At this moment, we cannot afford to fail the people of Ondo State who have reposed their confidence in the party to give them the most viable candidate for this years October 20 gubernatorial election. This is what we are committed to at the moment and we will not allow any egotistical activities any individual to distract us.
No member of the party, including Small Alhaji, is bigger than the party, and should, therefore, not play to the gallery. Whoever that has any grievance whatsoever with the party should address such in tandem with the constitution of the party.
We, therefore, use this medium to call on the national leadership of our great party to call Hon. Tajudeen Adefisoye to order and allow the newly-constituted committee to focus on the business of governance.
We appreciate the Nigerian Police Force and other security agents For their swift response when it matters most and we further seek your continuous supports in sustaining the peace and tranquility in our dear Sunshine State.
