Some leaders of Osun state Peoples Democratic Party led by Dr Lere Oyewumi has kicked against the reported plans by the National Working Committee of the party to appoint Adamawa state governor, Adamu Fintiri to conduct Osun PDP congress.
Addressing party supporters in Osogbo, Oyewumi described Governor Fintiri as an interested party who worked against the delegates of Osun state PDP during the last national convention.
” We reject Governor Fintiri because he is biased and will only do hatchet job if sent on this assignment. We call on the national leadership to select a neutral umpire, a governor or leader who is ready to conduct a truly free and fair Congress for us.
” We are not seeking for any favour from anybody. We are not looking for anybody to manipulate the Congress for us. All what we want is a man who will allow free and fair Congress to hold”, Oyewumi said.
Warning against interference and manipulation of Osun Congress, Oyewumi warned that while the PDP has all the opportunity to win the July election, no attempt should be made to impose a candidate who cannot win election on the people.
” We have laboured and worked to mobilise the state for PDP. We warn our leaders to be careful and stop any plan to impose any stooge on us. It won’t work. We will resist it”, he noted.
