The national secretary of Accord, Hon. Adebukola Ajaja has described the suspension of the chairman of the party in Oyo State, Kolade Ojo, and his secretary, Olayinka Dairo, as illegal.
Ajaja noted that the national chairman of the party, Muhammad Nalado, decided to suspend the duo without considering the provision of the party’s constitution.
She disclosed this while addressing journalists at the end of a stakeholders meeting of the party held in Ibadan at the weekend.
The meeting was attended by prominent members of the party among whom were Shina Abiola Peller who is currently representing the Iseyin/ Itesiwaju/ Iwajowa/ Kajola Federal Constituency.
DAILY POST recalls that the party had earlier announced the suspension of the chairman and secretary of the party in the state.
Ajaja, however, said that the suspension of both party members is illegal, noting that Nalado took the decision without her knowledge.
Insisting that the suspension was contrary to the provision of the constitution, she said: “What they did is illegal. They just took the decision within two hours. It is illegal. It cannot work. What we want in Accord this time around is 100 per cent. We don’t want 99 per cent loyalty in Accord.
“I am not aware of the suspension of the chairman and the secretary. My people, put your mind at rest.
“Kolade Ojo is still your chairman. Hon. Olayinka Dairo is still your secretary. The national chairman of the party took the decision unilaterally. They did not consult me.
“In the hierarchy of party supremacy, I remain relevant and they cannot suspend them without my knowledge.
“Those people claiming to be members of Accord, they are not; we are the original Accord. We have 100 per cent loyalty.”
