Former Council Chairman and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State of Osun, the Hon. Funmilayo Olasehinde has denounced her membership of the party.
Olasehinde made this known via a message sent to some of the leaders of the party, which was sighted by our correspondent.
In the message, she took out time to appreciate elders, leaders and members of the party for the love and support she enjoyed during her stay in the party.
“I greet the elders, leaders, and members of our great party, PDP.
“Sure, everyone is aware of my role in ensuring settlement of differences within the party,, and also, my role in solidifying the party in becoming victorious at future election.
“Its unfortunate, all efforts of elders, leaders and members of PDP seem not yielding positive result as we are gradually moving towards the 2022 governorship election in the state.
“For this reason, I humbly announce my exit from the PDP fold.
“Though, painful to my marrow and hurtful! but I had to arrive at the need for myself and several others to move on for the sake of progress.
“By my understanding, leaders must not encourage stagnancy.
Leaders are meant to be dynamic, ensure movement for progress, lead aright, and ever discourage stagnancy to avoid negative effect on growth of followers and the society
“I wish the PDP well, and I pray we meet again in the nearest future if God permit.
