Ifako-Ijaiye PDP crisis worsens as party executives take case to police

The crisis plaguing the Ifako-Ijaiye’s chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has taken a turn for the worse as the party executives have further dragged themselves into the mud over former president, Jonathan’s election fund.

A faction led by Ward E Chairman, Hon. Alimi along with nine other executives reported the Chairman, PDP Mobilization Committee, Hon. Femi Onimole to the Area G police command over the alleged misappropriation of over N200 million naira meant for the party during the last general elections.

The faction had earlier written a letter to the state chapter of the party and the party’s governorship candidate at the last election, Jimi Agbaje, demanding that Hon. Femi Onimole be made to account for the funds released to him for the purpose of delivering the local government for the PDP, a feat which was never achieved as the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated the party at both the presidential election and governorship election in the local government.

When the state chapter refused to act, the Hon. Alimi led faction decided to take matters into their hands and therefore reported the case to the Area G police command, Ogba, where Hon. Femi Onimole was summoned for his side in the alleged misappropriation of party fund.

Hon. Femi explained that N2 million each was given to the eleven ward chairmen in Ifako-Ijaiye for the presidential election while the same amount was given for the governorship election and that despite that, most of the chairmen couldn’t deliver their polling units.

He stated further that additional money was given to polling unit agents while challenging the Hon. Alimi led faction to take him to higher authorities if they are still not satisfied with his explanations.

Meanwhile, a credible source within Hon. Onimole’s camp, who craved anonymity, calls the Alimi led faction as rogues and selfish politicians who do not have the love of the party at heart.

She said, “It is such a shame that Alimi should be the one taking ‘Oga’ (Boss) to Area G over election money. The election ended four months ago and instead of them to rally together and see how the party can move forward, they are fighting ‘Oga’.

“This is the same Alimi that lost woefully in his polling unit. They couldn’t even account for the two million naira they were given and yet they are accusing ‘Oga’. They are rogues and are not worthy of being in our party. People like them are the reasons why PDP lost, she concluded.”
