The party has been enmeshed in intra party squabbles since the primary election when Hon Adele was denied the ticket of the party. 

Hon Adele has been accused of anti party activities prior to the election,whuch he denied,but he has draged the party to court claiming he was unfairly treated and wants to claim back his mandate. 

Unfortunately,he has been at loggerhead with the state party chairman ,Alhaji Tunde Balogun.

All efforts to reach the embattled former chairman proved abortive as calls to his mobile numbers were unanswered.
