A 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.
