…We’ll Not Miss Him. Says PDP
Temitope Adedeji, Akure
The former publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, Banji Okunomo has resigned from the party and joined the Zenith Labour Party ahead of the October 10 governorship election.
Okunomo who was one of the aspirants in the last concluded gubernatorial primaries of the party that contested along with Eyitayo Jegede before it was won by the later.
However, the party through its publicity secretary, Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, has wished Okunomo well in his political journey.
According to the statement, “Mr. Banji Okunomo’s exit from the PDP is an eloquent testimony of a man lacking in the spirit of sportsmanship.
“Okunomo and his phantom 15,000 followership could muster only 90 votes out of 2011 Delegates during the PDP Governorship Primaries.
“We endured his vituperation and attack on the PDP, a party that promoted him beyond his capacity, merely to give him a sense of belonging. But it is evident that he has hangover of defeat, occasioned by his gubernatorial misadventure.
“We wish Banji Okunomo, best of luck on his journey to political oblivion. His exit amounts to good riddance to bad rubbish. We shall surely not miss him.”
