He said: "Did you see Fayose in that video? Did you see any object like the Bible, Quran or iron? If no, how does that amount to oath-taking?”

On his part, Olu-Ojo denied the report, saying: “There was nothing secret. It was an open meeting. It was not oath-taking because, in the course of activities, there was no Bible, Quran, iron, blood or any other object to swear with.”

Meanwhile, reported that Fayose had reacted to the recent crisis the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had been facing.

The PDP chieftain in a series of tweets on Thursday, June 18, described the crisis as a show of God's anger against the party for its role in a number of issues including promoting election rigging and plunging the country into debt.
