SouthWest PDP slams opening of factional secretariat in Ibadan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Southwest on Saturday, July 17, condemned the recent opening of a factional Oyo State PDP Secretariat in Ibadan, the state capital.

This displeasure was made known by the Southwest PDP, at its zonal stakeholders’ meeting in Ibadan, which said that only one legally constituted executive existed in Oyo State, urged all party members in the state and, indeed, the zone likewise, to embrace the zonal chairman, Taofeek Arapaja’s unification agenda.

A statement issued by the Zonal Publicity Secretary, Sanya Atofarati, titled, ‘Resolutions at PDP Southwest stakeholders meeting which held in Ibadan on Saturday’, was made available in Ado Ekiti on Sunday.

Atofarati said, “The leadership condemned in strong terms, the illegal opening of a factional PDP State Secretariat in Oyo State; saying members should endeavour to toe the path of legality in a case where anyone feels discontented for any reason”.

The PDP spokesperson stated that “the zonal leadership of the party affirmed that only one legally constituted executive exists in Oyo State; and also urged members of the party to disregard the illegal factional secretariat in its entirety; and also embrace the unification agenda of the Arapaja-led executive.

“The party in the zone unanimously decided to work in harmony; sink differences and join hands with Oyo State Governor Makinde; who is the PDP leader in the zone with a view to taking the party to the next level”.

Atofarati said that the stakeholders, at the meeting resolved that “all hands must be on deck; to rescue the zone from the evil regime of the APC; not only in the Southwest however, in all the 36 states of the federation in 2023;” as they “expressed strong confidence in the leadership of Governor Makinde.”

Meanwhile, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has given reasons why it has yet to approve any herbal medicine for the treatment of COVID-19.

This is contained in a statement signed by the agency resident Media Consultant, Mr Olusayo Akintola; and also issued to newsmen on Sunday, July 18, in Abuja.

The statement quoted Prof Moji Adeyeye, NAFDAC Director-General, as saying; that “no single drug has been found yet to cure COVID -19”.

Adeyeye also warned Nigerians against excessive consumption of onions and garlic; with a view to curing COVID-19; saying, ‘’If you eat too much your breath will be smelling and nobody will want to stay by you.”
