Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola

The Peoples Democratic Party national secretary, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje, Dr. Sam Sam Jaja and Ambassador Ibrahim Kazaure have written a letter to the national chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, to give reasons why they may not appear before the disciplinary committee.

They enjoined the leadership of the party ??to tread slowly in order not to render superior courts of records toothless?? in its current attempts to enforce disciplinary actions against them, who have all been accused of violating some provisions of the PDP constitution.

The four officials of the party have been asked to report before  the Umaru Dikko led disciplinary committee of the party on Wednesday.

In a correspondence dated November 21, 2013, addressed and forwarded to the National Chairman of the PDP and signed by  Mr. Awa Kalu (SAN), representing Oyinlola and others; the counsel informed the national chairman and the PDP that he had instructions of the four officials invited to appear before the disciplinary panel next Wednesday to act  on their behalf in the matter under reference.

His letter reads in part: ??Our instruction is that notwithstanding pending litigations, the distinguished party of which you are the national chairman, intends to put machinery in motion aimed at making mockery of the Judicial process and thus the Rule of Law.

“May we respectfully inform you that Suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/774/13, (Prince Oyinlola and 3 Others vs PDP and Another) is presently pending in Court No 6 of the FHC, Abuja Division??.

In addition, he said there was a pending appeal at the Supreme Court arising from the Court of Appeal Suit No CA/A/84/2013 (Chief Adebayo Dayo & Another vs Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola & 2 Others) in which the Court of Appeal dealt with the subject matter “of your intended
disciplinary proceedings??.

He added that it was on the basis of this that four men urged the party and Tukur to tread slowly in order not to render superior courts toothless.
