The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has approved the removal of its chairman in the Osun state, Honourable Adesoji Adagunodo.
The opposition party disclosed on its verified Twitter page that its decision came after a vote of no confidence was passed on Adagunodo by members of the state's executive.
The NWC also validated the allegations brought before it by the leadership of the PDP in Osun state.
The party appointed the deputy chairman, Sunday Akanfe, to take over Adagunodo's place henceforth.
The party's NWC, going forward, wished Adagunodo well as he continues to contribute his quota to the progress and growth of the PDP.
"Consequently, the NWC has directed the State Deputy Chairman, Hon. Sunday Akanfe, to take charge of the affairs of the Osun state chapter pending the emergence of a substantive state Chairman in keeping with the dictates of the PDP Constitution.
"The @OfficialPDPNig wishes the former state chairman well in his future endeavours as he continues to contribute his quota to the growth and development of our party."
Meanwhile, the Osun state government had indefinitely suspended all weekly markets as a preventive measure to tackle the spread of coronavirus.
The state government's decision was made known by the commissioner for health, Rafiu Isamotu, on Tuesday, March 25.
Isamotuon also said that the ministry of health in the state has embarked on a sensitisation campaign to educate market women on the need to uphold utmost hygiene.
The commissioner made it known in a statement made available to Legit.ng that this is necessary as the state shares boundaries with certain states where there are confirmed cases of the virus.
