By Fejiro Oliver
Revelations are beginning to unveil as to how Baraje and his group were able to declare a new Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) without suspicion from Bamanga Tukur and his allies. This secret was made known by the new PDP Secretary, Mr. Olagunsoye Oyinlola at his hometown, Okuku. According to the former governor of Osun State, they had earlier booked the
venue of the declaration as a wedding arena, so as to confuse the Bamanga Tukur who would have sealed the place as their secretariat.
“They would have sealed the place off the way they did to our party secretariat, but we beat them to it by booking the venue for wedding without making our intention known”, he revealed. With this, they were able to beat the security operatives who likely may have shut the Shehu Yaradua venue of their declaration.
Oyinlola in his speech told the supports that they are the authentic group, while he constantly refers to Bamanga Tukur as the “former chairman”. The former governor speech has confirmed the rumors that their walking out of the PDP convention was stage managed, as they had earlier plan to float a parallel faction
The new PDP secretariat is currently under seal by the men of the Nigerian Police force
