The National Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Party has suspended the party’s National Chairman, Olu Ogunloye; and Secretary, Shehu Gabam, for alleged misconduct.

The NEC also unanimously appointed the party’s Deputy Chairman, Abdul Isaq, as interim party chairman; and Simon Adesina as National Secretary, pending the outcome of its convention slated for April 27 – 29, 2022.

These were contained in a communique signed by Isaq, after NEC’s meeting in Abuja.

According to the communique, the officers contravened the provisions of the SDP Constitution especially Article 12.5 (iv) 12.2.2 (viii) and Article 9.4.

“The NEC considered the various abuses of the constitution by the following under-listed officers and there agreed by majority to suspend Shehu Gabam and Dr Olu Ogunloye.

“The NEC noted the urgency to put in place all that is required for a befitting party convention and therefore resolves; that the national convention of the Social Democratic Party is fixed for April 27 to 29 with arrival being Wednesday, April 27, 2022,” it said.

The Council also annulled the appointment of National Working Committee members namely the National Youth Leader, Okechukwu Ogbonna and National Publicity Secretary, Rufus Aiyegba. 

It, therefore, mandated the National Working Committee to nominate more members.

It resolved to set up the convention planning committee (with two nominations from each of the six geopolitical zones), the zoning committee (with one nomination from each of the six geopolitical zones), the SDP National Reconciliation Committee (with two nominations from each of the six geopolitical zones), the SDP contact and mobilisation committee (with two nominations from each of senatorial zones) and the party finance review committee (with one nomination from each of the six geopolitical zones.
