PDP moves to reconcile Makinde, Fayose



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has concluded plans to resolve the dispute between the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, and ex-Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

The two PDP chieftains had been at loggerheads over control of the party’s machinery in the South-West.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, said the party’s leadership and its national reconciliation and strategy committee led by former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, would meet the duo and initiate the reconciliatory process.

He added that the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) would meet on the outcome of the reconciliation in the next 24 hours.

The statement read: “The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party after an extensive meeting has scaled up processes for reconciliation and as it affects South-West Zonal Congress of the party.
