A meeting will be scheduled which will also involve the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus other members of the NWC and the Senator Bukola Saraki-led National Reconciliation Committee.

The PDP said it took the decision after an extensive meeting and has scaled up processes for reconciliation and as it affects the zone.

A statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary on Wednesday affirmed that the party resolved “that beyond the legal conundrum in our party’s formation in the zone, the PDP must win the South West.

“Consequent upon this, the NWC further resolved that a meeting comprising of the National Chairman, the Deputy National Chairman, the National Secretary, the Senator Bukola Saraki-led Reconciliation and Strategic Committee, Governor Makinde and former Governor Fayose, be held immediately for urgent resolution of all issues concerning the South West.”

The NWC will meet on the outcome of this reconciliation meeting within the next 24 hours, it said.
