The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Raphael Adeyanju, recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the state is not part of any meeting in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, by the committee, and it is funny that someone of Prince Oyinlola’s standing will be promoting factions and illegality in PDP.
He added that concerted efforts are being made to resolve issues among the stakeholders, and he expects a resolution very soon.
His words “Our attention has been drawn to a meeting scheduled for Saturday in Ado Ekiti by Prince Oyinlola under the guise of a non-existing reconciliation committee.”
“We wish to state that the State Working Committee (SWC) of the PDP in Ekiti State is not aware of such meeting.”
“Therefore, all members of the PDP in Ekiti State are enjoined to shun the meeting as it is obviously another of the plots by Prince Oyinlola and his paymaster in Ibadan, Oyo State to cause division in the party.”
“Here in Ekiti, concerted efforts are being made to resolve issues among the stakeholders and as a follow up to the meeting held in Abuja on Monday, another meeting will be held in Lagos on Monday, next week.”

Currently, PDP controls 14 states out of 36 states in Nigeria.
In 1998 the PDP in its first presidential primary election held in Jos, Plateau State, North Central Nigeria norminated former military leader Olusegun Obasanjo who had just been released from detention as political prisoner as the presidential candidate in the elections of February 1999, with Atiku Abubakar (Governor-Elect of Adamawa State and a former leading member of the Social Democratic Party) as his running mate.
