The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State has denied reports that it has appointed coordinators for the 33 local government areas in the state.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the party had appointed Dr. Ajibola Muraina as the Oyo State Cordinator of the party but the party has denied appointing locl government coordinator.
Muraina in a statement on Monday, said he his mandate as state coordinator does not include appointing local government coordinators. He said his job was simply to ensure sincere and genuine reconciliation among the members of the party in the state.
He alleged that there were plans to “package tissues of lies” to petition the PDP headquarters over his appointment but stressed that such plans would fail because the party was now made up of people with integrity.
His words: “I enjoin all our members to rise up to work hard for the party and give us support to receive all our former leaders and teeming members back to the party so that we can have a strong platform that will be difficult for other parties to beat in 2019, rather than engaging in rumour mongering, back-biting, blackmailing and petition writing.
“In this time of hunger and hardship, let us come together without bitterness or hatred to ignore frivolities but to involve ourselves in constructive engagement of our members and masses of our people to bring back to Nigeria, a government of peace and prosperity flowing with milk and honey”.
