PDP convention: I ‘m aggrieved but hopeful— Adedoja
A defeated chairmanship candidate in the just concluded national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Taoheed Adedoja has expressed his grievances with the conduct of the exercise, but said he’s hopeful on the future of the party.
Adedoja, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja on Sunday said he was not happy about the outcome of the convention, regretting that the party has failed to learn from its past mistakes.
The former Sports and Special Duties Minister who got no vote at the convention, pleaded with members of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party to set up a committee to investigate what went wrong with the conduct of the exercise.
According to him, it’s only an insane person that would say that the convention went through due process, saying “the exercise was characterised by impunity, which he said, must be reviewed in order to avert further crisis in the party.
“A week to our convention, a list tagged ‘unity list’ emerged with names of the winners in the convention circulating around. So the BoT should find out what went wrong”, he said.
