S’West PDP CRISIS: Make A Peace Offering Now or Forget 2023—PDP Leader tells Makinde, Fayose


A Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party in Ekiti, Hon. Opeyemi Falegan has urged the Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose and other political figures in the region to address the differences between aggrieved members, Makinde and Fayose in order to forge a path for the 2023 Election.

Akedeoyo.com had earlier reported how that the southwest chapter of the party has been rocked with lingering internal crisis which was as a result of the rife between Fayose and Makinde over the control of the leadership of the party in the zone ahead of its pending regional congress.

In a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Monday, Falegan urged the leader of the Party to unite in order oust the ruling All Progressive Congress come 2023.

While commenting on the Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola led-reconciliation panel, Falegan urged party faithfuls to support the efforts of the committee in the best interest of the party, so that the lingering internal crisis can be laid to rest.

He said, “The time has come to reposition the PDP and make it stronger than how it was; in order to face the future electoral challenges from the ruling party, APC in the country.


“It has therefore become an imperative and unavoidable step to allow peace to reign supreme within the PDP’s family. Especially in the Southwestern states of Nigeria. Southwest is the only region in Nigeria as of today with only one PDP sitting governor. This development, calls for great concern, and not any form of selfishnesss”

“The only way we can achieve greatness, wax stronger and bounce back to the winning spree of the past, is for all, especially the leaders in the Zone to come together by dropping their egos and make all necessary sacrifices when needed.

“This move, will not only boost the morale of all party supporters but will also drive in more of the estranged and new members into the PDP and make it becomes a party to beat in Nigeria again.

“Therefore, the constitution of a new reconciliatory committee, which is headed by a former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola with other notable leaders as members is not only timely but highly desirable, in order to end all the crisis affecting the unity and progress of the party in the region.

Falegan charged the committee to pursue reconciliation with sincerity and vigour, saying, “no problem is insurmountable especially when justice and fairness to all parties are not being compromised.”

“I enjoin the party leaders and supporters to join hands with the committee at carrying out the assignment which he described as a “make or mar” one, depending on the support the body gets from the PDP members,” he added.
