The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State chapter has suspended its Chairman, Philip Olabode Aivoji, and Deputy Chairman, Benedict Felix Tai.

Amode noted that Aivoji and Tai were required to step aside because they are part of the executive dragged to court and therefore cannot adjudicate in their own case.

He stated that the meeting was properly constituted and attended by the required quorum needed to take the decision.

Recall that three members of the original 14 members of the SWC had decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), reducing the membership of the SWC 11,

The statement read in part, “The five members in attendance constitute the majority from the original 14 members that form the State Working Committee among which three had decamped to the ruling party, reducing the membership of the State Working Committee to eleven.

“The embattled Chairman and his Deputy were part of the Eleven remaining members and since they can’t adjudicate in their own case, only nine members were left to take decisions, and five members named above attended today’s meeting and ratified the above as stated.

“Please note that the action taken by the State Working Committee was done in accordance with the PDP constitution and to rebuild and reposition PDP in Lagos State.”
