The Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West has debunked a media report that Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has called a reconciliation meeting to resolve the political feud between Governor Seyi Makinde and former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose.
The South-West Zonal Director of Media and Publicity of PDP, Lere Olayinka, who said this in a statement on Friday stressed that Oyinlola lacked the moral preserve to reconcile the two PDP leaders.
Olayinka who said this in reaction to the report published by a national newspaper about the reconciliation meeting said, “Concerning the South-West Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Oyinlola himself knows that he lacks moral preserve to be a peacemaker.”
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a publication in a newspaper that there will be a reconciliation meeting between Fayose and Governor Makinde at the instance of former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, today (Friday).
“To us, Prince Oyinlola is supposed to be Governor Seyi Makinde’s leader, but the reverse is the case now as he is painfully acting like Governor Makinde’s ‘appendage’ and also his contractor.
“Therefore, he has no moral preserve to be a peacemaker as peace can not be achieved when insincere people who are self-seekers sit at the table as peacemakers.
“Most importantly, PDP was peaceful in the South-West before Prince Oyinlola returned from APC and committed and loyal leaders of the party in the zone will on their own, ensure that issues in the party are resolved.”
