Ogun PDP Boycotts Saturday LG Poll
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has withdrawn from the July 24 council polls in Ogun State.
The Chairman of the party in Ogun, Hon. Sikirulai Ogundele, said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
Ogundele urged aspirants and members of the party to remain calm, saying the withdrawal was sequel to a judgment of an Ogun State High Court between him and Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC).
Ogundele had earlier dragged OGSIEC to court for dealing with a faction loyal to late Buruji Kashamu of the PDP in the State.
The OGSIEC Chairman, Babatunde Osibodu, said he handed over the forms of the party to the faction with the authentic documents.
