The Social Democratic Party, SDP, Ogun state chapter, says it would rather its national chairman, Olu Falae faced the consequence of receiving N100m from the Peoples Democratic Party alone. Falae had confessed Tony Anenih, chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees couriered the money to him to support the failed re-election of former President Goodluck Jonathan. He also claimed to have shared the money to state chapters of his SDP, a claim the Ogun chapter denied.
Olu Agemo and Clement Adeniyi, state chairman and secretary of the SDP, said they didn’t know there party agreed to work for Jonathan “or any other party for the purpose of winning the election or maintaining peace during the period, as claimed by Falae.”
“The party was never informed by the national secretariat of the party of the decision to adopt former President Goodluck Jonathan or any other candidate as the party’s presidential candidate.”
“We plead with our members and supporters who have received these untoward revelations with great shock to remain calm and await the convocation of a general meeting where these issues shall be thoroughly discussed and appropriate decisions would be taken.”
“We assure you that the SDP in Ogun State will continue to operate within ethical and moral norms, as laid out in the principles of progressive welfarism established by our progenitor, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, in the struggle to establish an egalitarian, peaceful and equitable nation.”
