Former Osun State PDP Chairman and current Southwest PDP Chairman, Hon. Soji Adagunodo, has passed away in New York, USA, after a brief illness. The news of his demise is particularly unfortunate as it coincides with the Supreme Court’s affirmation of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s victory in the July 16th, 2022 gubernatorial election in Osun State, against former Governor Gboyega Oyetola. The cause of Hon. Adagunodo’s death is yet to be confirmed.

Confirming his demise, the south west youth leader of the party Honorable Seyi Bamidele while speaking with Nexiostudio on the phone described Adagunodo’s demise as unfortunate especially on the day the PDP records supreme court victory against former governor Gboyega Oyetola.

There was no love lost between the late chairman and current leadership of the PDP in the state loyal to the governor. Late Adagunodo at one point stood against the candidature of Governor Adeleke during the party’s primary through election just as the governor stood against the chairmanship bid of the late astute politician.

More details will follow.
