Southwest PDP Leadership Tussle: Fayose Publicly Acknowledges Seyi Makinde As Leader – Naijanewsdirect

Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has acknowledged that the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, is the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-west.

This is coming after months of leadership tussle between the duo.

He made the declaration on Monday during the South-West Zonal Congress at the Women and Children Development Initiative Foundation (WOCDIF), Osogbo, Osun State.

Speaking in English and Yoruba, Fayose said “Nothing will last forever. And if I have offended anybody, I apologize.

“Don’t allow them to give us a name that’s not ours in Yorubaland. The time of our Governor, Seyi Makinde, will not fail.

Fayose and Seyi Makinde Embraced each other

Fayose further used a proverb to describe what went wrong. He said “Ija l’ode t’orin d’owe”. Meaning: “It was the fight that occurred that made a song become a proverb”.

“Seyi Makinde and I are one since. But under any leadership regardless of the level, you are our father. God will help you to succeed.”

“The issue at this congress is circumstantial, the question is who is our leader, Gov Seyi Makinde is our leader, therefore, our supporters and lovers should not be putting a wedge between us.

“Distinguish leaders, I want to assure you that we will make exploit together and anywhere it goes, I will accept, In any family Where there is cause to vote, there will be a divide, but I assure you, wherever it goes I will abide.

In his remarks, Makinde assured that he would work with the new zonal officials to reposition the party.

The Oyo helmsman said at the end of the exercise, there will be no victor, no vanquished.

He reiterated that the success of the PDP zonal congress had far-reaching implications for the PDP nationally.

Governor Samuel Ortom, Chairman of the Congress Electoral/Congress Committee, was represented by his Deputy, Benson Abounu.
