Former Senate President and Chairman Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Reconciliation Committee, Dr Bukola Saraki, met with Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, in an effort to broker peace between him and former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose.
Saraki met with Makinde at the Oyo State Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, on Friday.
The meeting with Makinde was a follow-up to last week’s meeting the former governor of Kwara State had with Fayose.
Both Fayose and Makinde have polarised the PDP in South West, with both party leaders supporting different factions of the party in the zone.
Both of them have also nominated different persons for positions in the forthcoming South West zonal congress of the party.
Their supporters have also been abusing the two leaders, calling them unprintable names.
However, Saraki in a tweet on Friday evening, said both Makinde and Fayose were ready to work together in the interest of the PDP.
He said: “As part of our ongoing efforts to reconcile the leaders and members of our great party, last week, I had a meeting with the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
“As a follow-up to the engagement and consultation, this evening, I just wrapped up an extensive but fruitful meeting with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
“As we continue to listen to and learn about the concerns of stakeholders of our party, it is great to observe their willingness to work towards forging a stronger and more united Peoples Democratic Party. #PDPReconciliation.”
