Pictures have emerged online on how some aggrieved members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) railed against the domineering posture of Bukola Saraki, former Senate President and leader of the party in Kwara.
The aggrieved members on Friday (Independence Day) reportedly took to the streets of Ilorin, the state capital to protest the attempt to recognize what they called the factional congress of the Saraki group, ahead of theirs which is the authentic ward congress.
The protesters under the guise of PDP Redemption Group held placards inscribed with, “No to Saraki dominance” and other messages to drive home their points.
The group had reportedly said it is distancing itself from the impunity which has become the norm in the political family of the Saraki tendency, which it added, the party gave shelter for protection in 2019, of which the bitter wounds they still nurture.
“We stand by the outcomes of the ward congress freely held across the 193 wards by the members of our party.
“We reject the kangaroo arrangements called a factional congress by the Saraki tendency as we urge the National Secretariat of our party to give primacy to the survival of our party ahead of individual’s interest.”
