Naij.com sources within the PDP revealed that purported sack of Mr Adeyanju was due to recent press statements he issued on behalf of the party questioning various policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari led APC government.

“Deji’s purported sack was simply because he issued press statements on behalf of the party as the acting publicity secretary, Dayo Adeyeye, would not issue statements on critical national issues” a source who wants to remain anonymous told our reporter.
