THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the present ruling party in Osun State with the Executive Governor of the State, Senator Ademola Adeleke as the leader while Sunday Bisi stands as the State Chairman.
As I write this, the party is pretending that all is well like what brought the All Progressive Congress, APC to become opposition party after 12 years in power.
APC in Osun did not see the crisis within its camp as a danger until they were defeated in the last governorship election. PDP is threading the same path of over confidence and pride.
Not too long ago, one of the chieftains of the party and a one time governorship aspirant, Dotun Babayemi held a non-partisan rally tagged; ATUNTO OSUN to help the downtrodden masses in the state, the party top hierarchy condemned the action saying it was an anti-party action. They did not create any room for reconciliation.
Everyone is important to build a formidable party, but to the PDP, anyone can go to hell which was why the likes of Dotun Babayemi is already on his way out anytime from now going by the information at my disposal. Akin Ogunbiyi who was at a time, a formidable governorship aspirant of the party like Babayemi has joined the opposition party due to uncomplimentary attitude of the ruling party.
Now it is the turn of Engr. Kehinde Raji popularly known as AARAJ, who was once the financial backbone of the party that ensured Senator Adeleke made it to Bola Ige House, Abere.
According to a Press Release by AARAJ, the party, the governor went into agreement before the governorship election.

The party won but failed to honour their own part of the agreement.
According to AARAJ, the four reasons he fell out with Governor Adeleke includes,
-” He won’t be a card carrying member of their Party, PDP.
– His funds which the former Government failed to release would be paid after winning the election
– Aaraj Constructions Ltd will be patronised to cater for the thousands of followers by creating jobs and financial freedom for them.
– His hometown (Osogbo) will be developed infrastructurally and in human capacity.”
Bone Of Contention and Mrs Dupe Adeleke’s angle, AARAJ said,
“Prior to the Governor’s swearing in, the Project Coordinator of RAMP (Engr Okediya) who was wrongly sacked by the previous government for reasons best known to them was called back based on the directive of Governor Ademola Adeleke.
Aaraj took the Project Coordinator to Senator Adeleke for saving the State about 200 millions Naira.
Mr Governor in waiting then appreciated Engr Okediya and instructed AARAJ THRICE to accompany the Project Coordinator back to his office immediately after his swearing in ceremony, this instruction was witnessed by the Project Coordinator, the RAMP accountant and a lady named Folake from RAMP.
Also the interim Party Chairman (Dr Akindele) was sitted, and he was also present on the 28th of November 2022.
On the 30th of November, Chief Mrs Dupe Adeleke (The Governor’s elder sister) phoned Aaraj on the reason why he escorted the sacked Project coordinator. Aaraj explained it was on the instructions of Mr Governor and argument ensured, the conversation ended abruptly. A committee was set up and Engr Okediya was restored till date.”
All efforts to get the side of the Chairman of the PDP, Hon Sunday Bisi proved abortive including several calls and a message to him.
The Publicity Secretary of the Party, Hon. Areola refused to pick his calls. All efforts to get his comments proved futile. The text message sent to him for over a week was not attended to.
It is a known fact that performance and good governance do not win sny election otherwise Oyetola would have won his second term but cohesion, team spirit of the party, ability to carry every loyalists, members of the party along without witch-hunting, this is the keys for a winning formula.
