The SDP spokesman noted that “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 of any individual to distract us. “No member of the party, including Tajudeen Adefisoye 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,” The SDP, however, said: “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 tranquillity in our dear Sunshine State,” SDP spokesman concluded. But while reacting to the allegation, Hon Tajudeen Adefisoye denied having hands in the attack and described the allegation as untrue and unfounded.
According to him “Fasua has no power to speak for the party, describing him as a local government Chairmanship candidate in Akure who is not a member of the state Exco of the SDP. Adefisoye who spoke through his Media Aide, Yemi Fasipe, said: “Adefisoye did not sponsor any attack and would never sponsor one or be involved in any attack. “You need to address him (Fasua) as a local govt candidate from Akure south.
Secondly, the constitution of the caretaker is illegal and the matter is already in court. “NWC does not have the right to dissolve (SWC) without getting directives from NEC of the party. So the whole thing is illegal and when they go on air and make statements that they are the CTC of the party. It is laughable.
Somebody that wrote to the DSS for peace to reign in the party, can’t possibly be sponsoring attacks,” the lawmaker insisted. Adefisoye said he had written the security operatives in the state on the need to foster peace in the state chapter of the SDP.
