The sacked chairman of the Ali Modu Sheriff-led Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo state, Mr Biyi Poroye has boasted that nobody can suspend him from the party.
Poroye noted this in an interview with SUNSHINE HERALD in response to a statement issued by the Clement Faboyede-led structure of the PDP in the state which suspended him and three others from the party.
He said; “They are not the authentic structure of PDP, they do not have the right to do such.
“You will recall they have done it severally, so the question you ask them is how many times are they going to expel someone, if they actually have the ability to expel somebody and if they study the constitution of the party very well.
“If I want to expel for example, I know that the state structure of the party does not have the power to expel. The recommendation will come from the ward to the local government and to the state and what they have done is an exercise in futility.
“A lot of people from their faction had called me and regretted that action
“The national body they refer to does not recognise them because all the cases mentioned in court was between Biyi Poroye and Makarfi, there was no where Faboyede-led exco was mentioned. Therefore, Faboyede cannot enjoy from what he never participated in.
“If Faboyede is going to bask on the judgement given to Makarfi for recognition, Makarfi will have to issue a letter to show he is recognising so so faction of PDP in Ondo state and Makarfi-led national committee does not have the right to do that.
“What they can only do is to set up a caretaker of PDP in Ondo state from a known non-indigene, somebody from another state or at worse, the will set up an administrative committee that shall comprise five men, that is what is in the constitution.
Poroye further said he and others suspended are ready to seek an address in the court.
“I can assure you we will go to court, we dont mind starting another legal journey with them. We will go to court and put them where they belong and of course, they are the minority because a lot of they members have gone to APDA, some have gone to APC,” he concluded.
