The Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State has expelled former governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, and a member of the House of Representatives from Remo North Federal Constituency, Hon. Ladi Adebutu, for alleged anti-party activities. They were said to be willfully undermining of the party.
Others who were expelled from the party are a factional Chairman of the party, Sikirulahi Ogundele, and his secretary, Tolu Bankole.
Announcing the recommendation of the State Executive of the party at a press conference held at the party secretariat, Abeokuta, the State Chairman, Bayo Dayo, said Daniel and others having been examined for their alleged anti-party activities, were found guilty .
While justifying the expulsion of Daniel despite his status as a former governor, Dayo said the former governor had lost his rights since he had left the party.
Dayo said Daniel rejoined the party in 2015 after he had left for the Peoples Party of Nigeria and Labour Party and he was treated as a returnee.
Dayo is of the Senator Buruji Kashamu-led faction of the party in the state.
WESTERN POST could not get the former governor to respond to his alleged expulsion on Saturday.
