The chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Osun state, Ademola Ishola has been suspended indefinitely from the party for his recent statement on the status of a governorship aspirnt of the party, Senator Iyiola Omisore among other misdeeds.

Iyiola Omisore was not a member of the party. Besides, they also accused Ishola of allegedly failing to "render an account of party grants and subventions, amounting to over N6 million collected for the past five years." Nigeria Tribune reports.

Addressing a press conference in Osogbo, Osun state capital, former secretary of the SDP in the state, who is also an ex-officio member of state executive committee, Elder Timothy Agboola, who was flanked by the assistant secretary of the party, Emmanuel Adeniji and ten members of the executives appointed the vice chairman of the party in Osun Central Senatorial District, Alhaji Ganiyu Babatunde as the acting chairman.

Agboola said: "be informed that the state executive committee of the SDP at its emergency meeting held on the 26th of June, 2018 at its party secretariat in Osogbo met and resolved to pass no vote of confidence on the state chairman of the party and thereby suspend him."

Parts of the reasons advanced for Ishola's suspension include among others "misrepresentation of the state executive committee to the public through unauthorised press statement, usurping the powers of the state executive committee by refusing to call state executive meeting for the past three years."

"Failure to render accounts of party grants and subvention collected for the past five years. Continued recognition and collaboration with Segun Awe, erstwhile secretary of the party who was suspended by the state executive for misconduct, disobedience of party resolutions and anti-party activities."
