Ahead the forthcoming governorship election in Osun State, the state chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has inaugurated a 31- member steering committee to pilot the affairs of the party.
Members of the committee include Chief Ademola Ojo (Chairman), Barrister Ojo Williams (Secretary), Mr. Taiwo Akeju, Mr Goke Onigbogi, among others..
Inaugurating the committee in Osogbo at the weekend, the national Vice Chairman Chief Supo Shonibare urged members to work assiduously to bring in more members and ensure that fairness guide their actions.
He observed that the all inclusive committee was put in place to ensure that those ones that decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP will not be left out of the leadership of the party.
It will be recalled that the chairman, Senator Iyiola Omisore faction of the PDP, Dr. Bayo Faforiji, a one time chairman of PDP in the state, Barrister Ojo Williams, former member, House of Representatives, Hon. Bade Falade, former Nigeria ambassador to Philippines, Dr Yemi Farounbi among others defected to SDP from PDP recently.
Shonibare said similar committees have been inaugurated in Ekiti and Lagos states to ensure a strong and formidable party structure from all the wards, local governments and states throughout the country.
