Taoheed Adedoja, one of the chairmanship aspirants at the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has taken the party to court.

Mr Adedoja is asking a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to nullify the outcome of the convention on the basis that he was “excluded” from the exercise.

He said rather than using his name, the convention planning committee used “Taoheed Oladoja” and as such, his name did not appear on the ballot papers.

On the day of the convention, Mr Adedoja was the only aspirant from the south-west who refused to step down for Tunde Adeniran, consensus candidate from the region.

He did not secure a single vote in the election.

In the suit filed through Rickey Taffa, his lawyer, Mr Adedoja said it was wrong to say he scored no voter in the election when his name was “missing.”

The development is coming a week after Mr Adedoja said he was “aggrieved but hopeful” regarding the convention.

He had told journalists in Abuja that “the convention was characterised by impunity” which must be reviewed in order to avert further crisis in the party.

“A week to our convention, a list tagged ‘unity list’ emerged with names of the winners in the convention circulating around. So the BoT should find out what went wrong,” he had said.

The PDP has since begun reconciliatory moves to u0nite aggrieved parties in the convention.

Among those spearheading the move are governors elected on the platform of the party as well as the party’s former leaders.

Last week, Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa state, led a reconciliation committee to the south-west.

The committee held separate meetings with Rasheed Ladoja and Gbenga Daniel, chairmanship aspirants of the party. (Daily Nigerian)
