Lagos PDP suspends former Aeroland chairman

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Alimosho Local Government Area of ​​Lagos State has suspended the former chairman of the party in the state, Segun Adewale, also known as Aeroland, for misconduct.

The Chairman of the PDP in Alimosho LGA, Alhaji Isiaka Shodiya, said at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday that Adewale was suspended for allegedly causing disaffection in the party and tarnishing its image.

The party’s vice-president for the district, Mrs. Esther Adeyemi, auditor, Mr. Jimi Awogbade, organizing secretary, Mrs. Bola Bamgbose, E1 district chairman, John Bolaji and Mr. Kenneth Nwanzuere were also suspended.

He said the party had decided to suspend Adewale and others for defaming the party through lies and false allegations on social media.

According to him, the suspended chairman violates the party’s constitution by encouraging violence and showing disrespect to leaders.

Shodiya said: “All these and other crimes constitute a gross violation of the party’s constitution under Art. 58 section 1 letter a, b, h, I, L and m.

“Having complied with the requirements of the above section, the Alimosho Peoples Democratic Party LGA leadership has no choice but to comply with Art. 59 section 1 Sub-D and declare that Mr. Segun Adewale of Ward 10 (M1), Alimosho is hereby suspended indefinitely.

“We are using this medium to announce to the world that Mr. Segun Adewale (Aeroland) has been suspended indefinitely and must be dealt with accordingly.

“We will also convey this to the Nigeria Police to know the current status of Mr. Segun Adewale in the party.

“This is to guarantee the lives and property of our dear party members due to his aggressive nature.”
