The party advised Ayo Fayose to close rank with Makinde to move the South West party forward and stop disturbing the peace of the party.

The statement said:

“This is not to say that former governor Ayo Fayose can be wished away in the scheme of things as one of the party leaders in the zone, but he should understand that he does not own the party and as such, should respect the existing political organogram/arrangements which he once benefitted from, as the only elected PDP governor in the zone between 2014 and 2018,” he stated.

The reminded Fayose that Southwest has only one sitting governor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, it could no longer afford destabilisation ochestrated by individuals who assumed ownership of the party.

Meanwhile, a former Minister of Power and Steel, Dr Wole Oyelese, has blamed the festering crisis in the South-West chapter of the inability of the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to caution the warring factions.

Oyelese said if the national chairman of the party had called Makinde and Fayose to resolve the crisis, the embarrassing situation would have been averted.

Oyelese, said this in an interview with our correspondent, in Ibadan, on Tuesday.

He said, “It is unfortunate that the party at the national level allowed things to get to this level.

“My expectation is by now, the national body especially the national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, should have cautioned the two of them. The crisis between Governor Seyi Makinde and Ayo Fayose, shouldn’t have been allowed to get to this level.”
