Abuja — CRISIS rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Monday got messier as the National leadership of the Party wielded its big stick and suspended the former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola who was on Wednesday last week re-instated as National Secretary of the party through a judgment by an Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.

Oyinlola according to the leadership of the party would face the Disciplinary Committee chaired by Second Republic Minister of Transport, Alhaji Umaru Dikko, just as the party said it has not received the Wednesday Court of Appeal judgment which ordered his return to the National secretariat as the scribe of the party.

Also suspended with Oyinlola was the Chairman of the splitter group of the party and former Acting National Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje; the group's Deputy Chairman, Dr. Sam Sam Jaja; and the National Vice-Chairman of the PDP, North West, Ambassador Ibrahim Kazaure.
