It was not good news to members of the leading opposition party in Osun State, the PDP and many indeed got worried about the future of the party.
A popular female politician in the state, Hon Funmi Olasehinde-Mustapha penultimate Wednesday declared that she was no longer a member of the party.
Olasehinde in a statement announcing decision to resign membership of the PDP complained about intra-party conflict in the state chapter of the party.
‘I greet the elders, leaders, and members of our great party, PDP.
Sure, everyone was aware of my role in ensuring that differences between members of the party get resolved and also, my role in solidifying the party in becoming victorious at future elections.
It is unfortunate that all efforts of elders, leaders and members of PDP have not yielded positive results as we gradually move 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 permits.
Bye for now’ she had submitted last week Wednesday.
Hon Funmilayo, however, later told Global Excellence that she has left the PDP but yet to join any other political party.
She also clarified that she has not given consideration to the idea of retiring from politics.
‘I have left the PDP and I am consulting and I will announce my new political party soon , God will steer me to the right path’ she said.
Hon Funmilayo at different times served as Chairman of Ifedayo local government, Osun State, member of the state house of assembly and former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola’s Special Adviser.
