The affirmation was done through a press release duly signed by Dr. Eddie Olafeso, National Vice Chairman – Southwest and Rev. Bunmi Jenyo – Southwest Secretary:
We acted on the recommendation letter duly signed by the State Secretary of the Party, Alhaji Semiu Sodipo and other nine members of the State Working Committee which was in accordance with the provisions of our party constitution as amended in 2017.
The State Working Committee accused engr bayo dayo of breaching the provisions of the party constitution.
Engr. Bayo Dayo’s conducts as regards the forthcoming Party congresses were found contrary to the provisions of the party constitution in Sections 31 (2) (3) and 49 (3) and the guidelines for the conduct of ward, Local Government, State, Zonal congresses and National Convention which is a punishable offence.
The recommendation was also as a result of other several conducts of Engr. Bayo Dayo, including anti-party activities, engaging in conduct likely to cause disaffection among members of our party in Ogun State and likely to disrupt the peaceful , lawful and efficient conduct of the businesses of the party, among others.
The Southwest Executive after a calm premilinary hearing of these infractions of Engr. Bayo Dayo and the submission of the majority members of the State Working Committee of the Party in Ogun, we agreed to affirm the suspension of Engr. Adebayo Dayo as the chairman of the party in Ogun State in accordance with the provision of SECTOR 57 (3) of the constitution of our party.
