- The governor of Oyo state has lamented over the tricks of the PDP's national legal adviser
- Governor Seyi Makinde called on the opposition's national working committee not to allow the adviser to disrupt its zonal congress
- Makinde is of the opinion that the party's legal adviser has not done well
Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, has reacted to the antics of the Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) national legal adviser.
Makinde briefing newsmen at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, claims that the legal adviser is deliberately truncating the peace of the party.
In a report by Channels TV, the governor advised the party's National Working Committee (NWC) to call the official to order to ensure rancour-free zonal congresses.
He went on to note that it was unthinkable to see the opposition party as the plaintiff and defendant in a case.
While stating that the southwest zone of the PDP was ready for its zonal congresses, Makinde added that party leaders in the region were already working towards a united party.
Stop disrespecting me or I will work against you, Fayose threatens Makinde
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the crisis between Ayodele Fayose, ex-governor of Ekiti state, and Oyo state governor took another twist on Wednesday, February 24, as the former threatened the latter.
The ex-Ekiti governor warned Makinde that he will work against him if he does not stop disrespecting him.
Fayose, who used to be the only PDP governor in the southwest, however, insisted Makinde is not his leader, adding that he played a strong role in his election as Oyo governor in 2019.
The plea was made by a group, Concerned Southwest Professionals (CSP), on Thursday, February 25, saying that Fayose's antics were capable of ruining the party in the zone.
In a statement issued by the group's Ismail Adeyemi and seen by Legit.ng, he said the former governor is on assignment in the southwest to create division within PDP in order to actualise the presidential ambition of his new godfather in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
