After he addressed newsmen, election materials were moved into the venue.
Oyo Governor, Seyi Makinde, hailed the exercise.
He said: “I have to show them my driver’s license before I was allowed.
“Accreditation is starting almost two hours behind schedule but better late and thorough, than for them to rush into and then they have challenges.
“The message is simple. This is a zonal congress and it has ramifications for our party at the national level.
“If it goes well in Southwest, be sure the future is bright for the PDP at the national level.
“This is only just the election of zonal officials, we will put our best and they will, in turn, assist us at the national level.”
