The Lagos state chapter of the People Democratic Party, PDP has been embroiled in a serious crisis over their Ward Exco list and its sharing formula.
In a statement made available to PoliticsNGR, a chieftain of the party, Adekola Tiamiyu lamented;
“Lagos state chapter of PDP may not get it right before the 2019 general election if necessary step is not taken to caution some greedy leaders on their winner takes it all syndrome on the issue of ward exco list that was agreed with national reconciliation committee of our great party last year.
The leaders and elders unanimously agree on 65%/35% sharing formula, bit as its now the list has divided Lagos state PDP Exco into factions because the chairman refused to show the CWC the list before the inauguration.
The sharing formula gave Chief Olabode George 65% of the Exco from ward to state and Chief Mrs. Aduke Maina and Jimi AGBAJE group 35% ( Mama Maina 20% % JK 15%) and both group submit their nominees for all the position based on the sharing formula.
But unfortunately, some undesirous elements in our party went ahead to doctor the list to their favour because of gobbling trait in them.
As its now Lagos PDP is not settled yet so National working committee should act fast because this may cost more damages than good. Because A stitch in time saves nine.”
