Osun PDP confirms Fani-Kayode’s membership

Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the ward level in Ife Central Senatorial District in Osun State have finally spoken, authenticating the membership of ‎the Director, Media ‎and Publicity, Goodluck Jonathan Campaign organisation during the 2015 general elections, Femi Fani-Kayode in the party.

Addressing newsmen in Ile-Ife town in Osun State, Chairman of the Party in Iremo Ward 5 Ile-ife, Rasheed Ojikutu said that Fani-Kayode is not only a bonafide member of PDP but also a forthright leader of the party.

The Ward Chairman confirmed that Femi Fani Kayode was issued a PDP membership card from Ward 5 Iremo, ‎Ife Central Local Government Area of Osun State in April 2014, following his defection from the APC.

Ojikutu and other party leaders expressed dismay that despite the contributions of Fani-Kayode during the presidential race, the National Working Committee of the party is seeking disciplinary action against him, for joining others in calling for the resignation of the NWC.

Mr Ojikutu assured other party members at the ward and national level of their readiness to stand by Mr Fani-Kayode in proving the authenticity of his membership.

The National Secretary of PDP, Prof. Wale Oladipupo, had earlier in the week sent a letter to the Osun State chapter of the party, requesting that the authenticity of the membership and the financial status of Mr Fani-Kayode be confirmed.
