I Won't Allow PDP Leaders Corrupt Our Judicial System Like Before —Makinde
The only governor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West and Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday said he would not allow the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP to bribe the judiciary as they used to do.
Makinde asked the PDP NWC to warn the National Legal Adviser of the party to ensure rancour-free zonal congresses in the South-West.
Governor Makinde, who stated this while briefing newsmen at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, said the South-West zone of the party was ready for its zonal congresses, adding that party leaders in the zone were already working towards having a united front.
He said it was unthinkable to see a PDP as the plaintiff and the defendant in a case deliberately filed to truncate the peace of the party.
The governor said: “I specifically put on notice that the National Legal Adviser of PDP has not done well. When the issue of the party structure in Lagos came up, I met him personally and advised him that, look, we have alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in this country, especially when it's an internal affair of the PDP.
