Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has denied plans to attend a reconciliation meeting with Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, today.
Both Fayose and Makinde have polarised the PDP as a result of their differences as both party leaders have been supporting different factions of the party in the South-West.
Both of them have also nominated different men and women for party positions in the forthcoming zonal congress of the party in the South-West.
Their supporters have also been accusing and abusing their leaders, calling them unprintable names.
In a bid to reconcile the two leaders, ex-Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola of Osun State has reportedly convened a peace meeting.
His earlier meetings in South-West states had been shunned by Fayose supporters, who alleged that any meeting called by Oyinlola “is self-serving and for personal gains.”
While reacting to reports that he would be attending a reconciliation meeting with Makinde, Fayose tweeted, “My attention has been drawn to a publication that I will attend a reconciliation meeting by former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola, today (Friday).
“Let me state clearly that I have no business with Prince Oyinlola’s so-called reconciliation.”
The crisis between Fayose and Makinde started over the latter’s role in the Ekiti PDP crisis as well as the leadership of the party in the South-West.
The strife, which has lingered for some months, had even recently seen the aides of the two engaging in a war of words on social media.
Fayose had insisted that Makinde was not the PDP leader in the South-West, noting that leadership should be earned and not for anyone as a title.
