The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State on Thursday cautioned the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde to stop meddling into the affairs of the party in the state, but rather, he should find means of putting his ‘house’ in order.
The State party Chairman, Dr Sikirulahi Ogundele, who said this in a statement while reacting to the visit of Makinde and Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola to former Governor Gbenga Daniel described the visit as a mere jamboree.
Makinde during the visit to Daniel on Wednesday pleaded with the former governor to take over the structure of PDP in the state for peace to reign.
The Ogun State Chairman of PDP, Dr. Sikirulah Ogundele in a statement on Thursday in Abeokuta, described Makinde ‘s visit with former Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola to Daniel, as a mere personal visit.
Ogundele condemned the visit by Makinde and the Oyinlola led factional South-West Zonal Reconciliation Committee, saying the visit was unnecessary because members of the party in the state have started the process of reconciling their differences and ready to work together for its success in 2023.
He said the governor should be more concerned about reconciling his differences with leaders of the party in Oyo State and stop meddling into the internal affairs of the party in Ogun State.
“Our Committed leaders in the state and reconciliation committee are working tirelessly to resolve differences among our members, to ensure a united and strong platform that will take over governance in the state in 2023”, he assured.
Ogundele who doubles as Chairman of South West PDP Chairmen Forum, re-assured members of the party to be calmed and should not be bothered about the visit of Makinde with some leaders within the zone to the former governor in Sagamu.
