Oyo PDP advice Fayose against ‘needless strife’ with Makinde 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State has requested Ekiti State former governor Ayo Fayose to halt leadership struggle with Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, “because it is needless.”

The Publicity Secretary, Akeem Olatunji, told News men that besides that the party’s constitution bestowed leadership on the elected officer of highest rank, Fayose enjoyed the same privilege as the leader of Southwest during his tenure as the only PDP governor in the Southwest.

He recalled that during Fayose’s leadership of the region as the only PDP governor, he picked national and Southwest officials of the party without any fuss.

Olatunji was reacting to a parallel meeting held by members of Fayose’s faction in Lagos last Friday where two committees were set up and zonal executive positions zoned to each of the six states of Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Lagos, Ogun and Ekiti. The meeting duplicated the decisions taken at the meeting held at the Oyo State Government House under the leadership of Governor Makinde, the only PDP governor in the Southwest, last Wednesday.
