The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reportedly expelled Professor Wale Oladipo, its national secretary following the party's crisis as it relates to the governorship election to be held in Ondo on Saturday, November 26.
Oladipo is reported to be on the side of Ali Modu Sheriff, who leads a faction of the party that took the Ahmed Makarfi faction and Eyitayo Jegede to court.

The Supreme Court recently re-affirmed Jegede as the real candidate of the PDP in the election thus throwing out Jimoh Ibrahim and the Sheriff faction.
The Will reports that the chairman of the PDP in Osun state, Dr Bayo Faforiji, announced the sack of Oladipo at a congress held at the party secretariat.
He also announced the expulsion of Soji Adagunodo, the chairman of a faction of the party in the state. Others expelled included a chieftain, Gani Olaoluwa, and the secretary of the Adagunodo-led executive, Bola Ajao.
According to the report, the affected were expelled after they were found guilty of anti-party activities concerning the suit they filed to stop Eyitayo Jegede from contesting in Ondo state.
Faforiji said a disciplinary committee was set up to investigate the allegations against them over a month ago, adding that none of them honoured invitations to defend themselves.
While Oladipo is yet to speak, Adagunodo said the expulsion was a huge joke.
