Oyinlola is politically inconsistent –PDP
Secretary, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola as politically inconsistent.
The National Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo, stated this
in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Special Duties,
Abiodun Ojo, in Abuja on Friday.
Oladipo was ostensibly responding to the claim of Oyinlola that he

remains the national secretary of the PDP based on the judgment of the
Court of Appeal.
While saying that Oyinlola was an opportunist, Oladipo said those who
drafted him to the governorship race in Osun State in 2003 which he
won, had regretted their action.

however, said he viewed the turn of event as troubling.
He said the recent activities of Oyinlola were raising so many
questions about his understanding of politics and suggesting a
political disorientation of sorts.
