Ogun NNPP Crisis: I'm Still In-Charge - Oginni ....Says Party Not For Sale

The embattled Ogun State Chairman of New Nigeria People's Party (NNPP), Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday has  described the story of his removal, following the recent judgement by a Federal High Court in Abeokuta, as fake news being spread by those he called desperate politicians fighting hard to hijack the structure of the party in the state, as the leadership deepened 

The court in its judgement delivered on 20th July,2023, said that the issue of removal of Oginni as the State Chairman was internal matter of the party which the court has no jurisdiction to adjudicate over the matter as filed by the embattled State Chairman who anticipated his removal and expulsion by the National Leadership of NNPP over his withdrawal of the party's  petition challenging the election of Governor Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the last March 18,2023 governorship poll on the ground of alleged exclusion of the party's logo on the ballot paper for the poll.

Oginni who had since approached Federal Court of Appeal in Ibadan to challenge the judgement of the lower court, described those jubilating over the decision of the court as " Jokers and bunches of illetrates"

Reacting to the judgement, Oginni insisted that he remain in charge of NNPP in the state, despite his removal by the national hierarchy of the party, asking the appellate court in the appeal notice filed last Tuesday, 25th of July, 2023 to set aside the judgement and put record straight 

Oginni in a statement made available to Edu-Biznews on Thursday, explained that he decided to approach the appellate court in Ibadan to put the record straight that the internal party mechanism was not utilized as contained in the judgement by the lower court before his removal and expulsion by the party in support of the governorship candidate, Mr.Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo who has been in the running battle with him for the control of soul of NNPP in the state 

He added that the governorship candidate had failed at the Appeal Court in Ibadan in his attempt to re-enlist the petition withdrew before the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Abeokuta 

The statement reads in part:"I, Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday in my capacity as the Ogun State Chairman of NEW NIGERIA PEOPLE'S PARTY instituted the case at Federal High Court Abeokuta as Plaintiff"

"The Court in clear time ruled That it cannot adjudicate on the matter because it's not a pre- election matter.  The Learned Judge unequivocally directed that the disputes are clearly " family matter" and that the internal mechanism of crisis resolution within Our Party should be exhausted before resulting into Court for Adjudication"

"However, some mischievous elements whose desperation are to highjack The Leadership of Ogun State NNPP went on rampage spreading fake news"  

"It's on record that the former Gubernatorial Candidate of NNPP in Ogun State Mr. Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has been failing repeatedly and continuously in his desperation to highjack The Leadership of the Party"

"Going the Memory lane, Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo's effort to highjack The PETITION PET /OG/GOV/01/2023 filled by Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday on behalf of Ogun State NNPP Executive Council failed at the Tribunal" 

"In Oguntoyinbo's characters of desperation, he approached the Court of Appeal sitting at Ibadan to upturn the decision of The Ogun State Governorship Election Tribunal that Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday and The Ogun State Executive Council with their Counsel Peter Ogah are the custodian of NNPP in Ogun State and consequently The OWNER of The Petition "

"In his desperate move, Oguntoyinbo hired a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and Nzuya Nzuya Law firm to help him prosecute the Appeal."

"On the 4th of July, 2023, Oguntoyinbo and his co-travellers in their ill-fated Political Journey suffered monumental defeat at The Appeal Court Ibadan and his Appeal to upturn the decision of The Ogun State Governorship Tribunal Judgement was dismissed for being grossly incompetent and lack of merits"

"The Ogun State Chapter of NEW NIGERIA PEOPLE'S PARTY under The Leadership of Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday waited for Oguntoyinbo and his co-travellers in their Political misadventures to approach The Supreme Court but they failed woefully having been ruled out of time" 

"In the point of Law and Constitutional democracy, so far the judgements of the lower court and that of the Appeal Court are not upturned by Supreme Court, the Judgement Subsists"

"Any attempt by any money missed road politician to highjack The structure of NNPP in Ogun State shall continue to meet with Waterloo"

"Ordinarily, The Ogun State Chairman of NNPP, Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday wouldn't have Appeal the Judgement of The Federal High Court because there's no Pronouncement but recognizing the level of illiteracy and desperation of Oguntoyinbo and his co-travellers, Ogun NNPP under the Leadership of Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday filled A NOTICE OF APPEAL to set the record straight"

"The Ogun State Executive Council hereby call on Oguntoyinbo to take a deep breath and come to think about his continue and perpetual failures in his desperation to highjack The Leadership of Ogun NNPP"  

"Ogun NNPP is in a very safe Hand. There's no room for Highjackers"', he concluded in the statement
