There’s strong indication that leadership tussle rocking the PDP in the South-West will be a thing of the past as former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Ayodele Fayose acknowledged Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde as the leader of the Party in the South-West.
Former Governor Fayose made the remarks while addressing delegates at the Zonal PDP Congress in Osogbo on Monday, April 12, 2021.
Dr Fayose said he accepts Governor Makinde as the leader of the Party being the only PDP Governor in the region and for the progress of the Party in the South-West; affirming his readiness to work with any candidate that emerges at the congress for the interest of peace.
Earlier, Governor Seyi Makinde pledged his total support for the new executive of the Party at the South-West zone; noting that what should be paramount in the heart of every member is the progress of the South-West PDP, hence, the need for members to be united in moving the Party.
Also, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State who was represented by his deputy, Mr Benson Abounu, promised to conduct free, fair and credible election.
