The report quoted Mulikat Adeola to have stated that she didn’t know the happenings in the party as Makinde has relegated her completely.

The report read, “She (Mulikat Adeola) feels that the governor has exalted Segun Ogunwuyi above her in Ogbomoso and that is detrimental to her numerous followers.

She wants to know why the governor only listens and gives access to only Senator Halleluyah.”

The media aide to the deputy governor, Mr Omolere Omoetan, when contacted to know if his principal made such complaint to the committee said he had not been able to speak with his boss to know if what he was quoted to have said was true.

However, one of the aggrieved party leaders, Olopoeyan, who alleged threat to his life in the report, said the governor had not done well at all.

Olopoeyan said the governor might be the one who circulated the report.
