Lagos PDP suspends former Aeroland chairman

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Alimosho Local Government Area of ​​Lagos State has suspended the former chairman of the party in the state, Segun Adewale alias Aeroland, for misconduct.

PDP Alimosho District Chairman Alhaji Isiaka Shodiya said at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday that Adewale was suspended for allegedly sowing discontent within the party and damaging its image.

Also suspended were the Vice Chairman of the party in the region, Mrs. Esther Adeyemi, the Auditor General, Mr. Jimi Awogbade, the Organising Secretary, Mrs. Bola Bamgbose, the Chairman of District E1, John Bolaji, and Mr. Kenneth Nwanzuere.

He said the party took the decision to suspend Adewale and others because they had damaged the party’s reputation through falsehoods and unfounded allegations on social media.

According to him, the suspended chairman had disregarded the party’s statutes, called for violence and shown disrespect towards the party leaders.

Shodiya said: “All the above and other offences are in blatant violation of the party’s constitution under Section 58(1) a, b, h, I, L and m.

“Having complied with the above-quoted section, the LGA executive of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alimosho, has no option but to comply with Section 59(1) Subsection D and declare that Mr. Segun Adewale of Ward 10 (M1) in Alimosho is hereby suspended indefinitely.

“We use this medium to inform the whole world that Mr. Segun Adewale (Aeroland) is suspended indefinitely and should be treated accordingly.

“We will also communicate this to the Nigerian Police so that they are aware of the current status of Mr Segun Adewale within the party.

“This is to protect the lives and property of our esteemed party members due to his violent tendencies.”
