National Vice Chairman, South-West of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Eddy Olafeso, yesterday disowned Segun Adewale as the Lagos State Chairman of the party.
Olafeso in a statement in Akure said Adewale “did contest the last Ekiti State governorship election on the platform of ADP, therefore to that extent, still a member of that party as far as we know.
“We take due cognisance of a statement by Mr Segun Adewale to the effect that he is now the Chairman of PDP in Lagos State and thus declare firmly that he is not a member of our party in any ramification, and thus cannot in all seriousness be our state Chairman in Lagos.
“The PDP is a very structured party governed by set down laws and not one where any upstart can walk into and take mantle of leadership at will.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Segun Adewale is not a member of our party and remains absolutely extraneous to us, particularly in Lagos State.
“We, therefore, warn him to desist from making such outlandish claim again as any such further action will necessitate commencement of legal actions against him.”
