National Chairman of Accord Party, Alhaji Mohammed Nalado, has been given a seven-day ultimatum to resign his position over allegations of anti-party activities.
The ultimatum was given by the leadership of the party in the South West zone after a meeting held at Grand Serene Hotel, Ibadan, Oyo State. All the state chapters of the party in the zone except Oyo, were unanimous on the ultimatum.
Osun State chairman of the party, Otunba Segun Fanibe, who addressed journalists after the meeting, said Nalado has contravened Article 20 of the party’s constitution by allegedly engaging in acts that brought the party into public ridicule, disrepute and embarrassment. Fanibe was flanked at the press briefing by all the Southwest states chairman and other party leaders.
Fanibe, who said the party had for the past three weeks sought audience with Nalado on some issues but the party boss could not be seen, stated that the failure of the national chairman to either resign within seven days or call for NWC meeting in order to set up a seven-man disciplinary committee “will cause the AP in the Southwest to meet again within two weeks, to decide on our continued membership of the party.”
