Ekiti PDP crisis: Olujimi’s faction weighs options on defection


Amid anxiety over massive defection of aggrieved members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, a faction loyal to Sen. Biodun Olujimi said yesterday that it would make its decision known on Sunday.

Olujimi disclosed this in Ado-Ekiti after a meeting with members of her faction to deliberate on alleged shoddy treatment and injustice meted out to her during the governorship primaries and the resultant post-primary crisis.

Olujimi, who contested the primaries, but later pulled out over alleged irregularities, said whether to stay or leave the opposition party was a decision to be collectively made after due consultation and deliberation would have been concluded.

She said her faction had constituted a committee under the chairmanship of former acting governor Tunji Odeyemi to consult with her loyalists in the 16 local governments and turn in its report.

Olujimi, the lawmaker representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, said her faction’s next line of action would depend on the recommendations of the report to be submitted in the coming days, which would be made public.
