“Since we took a stand to boycot the last local government elections, which we did in the best interest and safety of our people, Oguntuwase has been plotting to destabilize Ado-Ekiti PDP by all means.
“Therefore, we no longer believe in the leadership of Oguntuwase and hereby call on the national leadership of our party to call him to order because his recent actions can lead to anarchy in the party.
“We also ratify the decision of leaders and the Exco of Ward nine to suspend Mojeed Apempe who has reduced his office to avenue of lies and destabilisation of the party.
“We hereby warn him to stay away from Ado-Ekiti PDP henceforth.
“We are solidly behind the leadership of Hon Yinka Olomofe a.k.a Kala.”
