The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) State Congress in Kwara state was characterized with protests by aggrieved party members. While a group wanted the incumbent Executive of the party led by Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo to return unopposed, another group preferred voting to elect new leadership for the party. The situation led to unnecessary delay in accreditation of delegates.
The irreconcilable differences led to non accreditation of delegates of delegates from Kwara central zone in the exercise that lasted till wee hours of Wednesday. Disenchanted members of the party led by Senator Ayinla Folorunsho, vowed to resist affirmation being introduced by the incumbent state executive committee of the party.
They accused the State Chairman of the Party, Iyiola Oyedepo, of a plan to scuttle the process of injecting new blood into the executive of the party with his insistence affirmation instead of congress as directed by the national body of the party.
