The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has resolved to set up a Transition committee in Oyo State.
This was made available to Newsmen on Wednesday in Ekiti State at a Reconciliation committee meeting ,aiming at according all aggrieved members of the party.
The meeting was presided over by the Ekiti State Governor, Governor Ayodele Fayose who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ forum and Rev. Bunmi Jenyo minuted the meeting.
In attendance at the meeting were a former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, and a former deputy governor of Osun State, Iyiola Omisore.
At the gathering, Fayose said to the Representatives of Oyo State to muster efforts towards reuniting the aggrieved members of the party and said the era of imposition of Political leaders on the members are over.
His statement reads :
“This exercise is an outcome of our recent non-elective national convention. The leaders have mandated us to bring on those who are ready to support our great party in the drive to chart a new way forward for the PDP. In doing this, we won’t give room for dissidents to frustrate us and our efforts.
“Some people are claiming to be members of our party and at the same time going to court to frustrate the party. They tried unsuccessfully to stop the last convention using the court, but they failed woefully. There is no room for anybody who is one leg in and one leg out. It is either you are here or there. I am sure no judge would allow himself to be used as a spoiler by some filthy politicians.
“Sanctions will be imposed on errant members and those who are loyal party members and working for the progress of the party have nothing to fear.
“The success of our last convention brings the hope for a new Nigeria. The opposition must be organised for the sake of democracy in our country. For us to be organised, we need to shift ground where necessary. Whoever loses out today, may win tomorrow. I am not from Oyo and won’t be biased.
