Finally, members of the Unity Forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu have reached a truce.
They agreed to work together for the success of the party in the October 10 election.
Chief Olusola Oke led the forum members to visit Governor Akeredolu where the truce was reached.
However, no statement was issued after the meeting.
Meanwhile, an aide to Oke, Rotimi Ogunleye, said the discussion was successful.
He said the governor accepted the forum’s proposal on the need for stakeholders to work for the party’s victory, The Nation reports.
“Our group insists that because of the experience in the past where promises were made and not kept, where people were given assurances, but were denied. It is important that the reconciliation should be comprehensive, involving all the strata of our party. That is the only reconciliation that will instil confidence in our people,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that ahead of Ondo governorship election, the Vanguard for Justice and Fairness in PDP (VJP) has urged the national working committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stay united.
VJP encouraged members of the committee to throw their weight behind Eyitayo Jegede, the party's choice of governorship candidate for the Ondo election.
The political group reminded the committee that doing anything other than supporting the party's choice for the election may ruin the chances of winning at the October 10 poll.
Also, reacting to Agboola Ajayi loss at the party's primary election to Jegede, the VJF cautioned the PDP working committee and other members against acts that would jeopardise the overall interest of the party.
In a statement released on Tuesday, August 4, the group's president, Abubakar Abagi, said the VJF is worried over the growing disaffection among the top leadership of the PDP.
Agabi said “anti-party activities” by ranking officials of the party and leaders over the victory of Eyitayo Jegede at the primaries is not healthy considering the task ahead in ensuring the PDP wins at the poll.
He also pointed out that the Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, had visited Lagos recently to introduce his running mate, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to Bola Tinubu, despite the rift between the duo.
