The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dragged the Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde and former Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose before the Bukola Saraki-led reconciliation and strategic committee.
The move was sequel to the festering disagreement between the serving Governor and the former governor over control of the PDP in the Southwest zone.
The disagreement has caused hiccups in the planned congress in the Southwest, forcing the leadership of the PDP to put the exercise on hold.
In a statement on Wednesday by spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said an ongoing legal tussle by two camps loyal to Makinde and Fayose had stalled the exercise.
“Consequent upon this, the National Working Committee (NWC) further resolved that a meeting comprising the National Chairman, the Deputy National Chairman, the National Secretary, the Senator Bukola Saraki-led Reconciliation and Strategic Committee, Governor Seyi Makinde and former Governor Ayo Fayose, be held immediately for urgent resolution of all issues concerning the South West.
“The NWC will meet on the outcome of this reconciliation meeting within the next 24 hours,” the statement said.
