The Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja-led leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has condemned the recent opening of a factional state secretariat of the party in Oyo state by some group of people, describing it as illegal and unconstitutional.
The party after its zonal meeting at the weekend in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital urged members to disregard the moves by some elements to cause crisis within the party, adding that only one party executive is recognized in the state.
According to the communiqué of the meeting which was released by the zonal publicity secretary, Chief Sanya Atofarati on Sunday, the party reiterated the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde in the zone and expressed confidence that the governor would chart a new direction for the party towards achieving victory in future elections.
While the PDP called on its members with genuine grievances to channel such in a legal and acceptable way, it emphasized the need for unity among members in order to end the unimpressive governance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the country.
The communiqué reads,” The party unanimously decided to work in harmony, sink their differences and join hands with the governor with a view to taking the party to the next level.
“All hands must be on deck to rescue the zone from the evil regime, not only in the South-West but in all the 36 states of the federation in 2023.
“The leadership condemned in strong terms, the illegal opening of a factional PDP State Secretariat in Oyo State saying members should endeavour to toe the path of legality in a case where anyone feels discontented for any reason.
“The zonal leadership of the party affirmed that only one legally constituted Executive exist in Oyo state and urged members of the party to disregard the illegal factional Secretariat in its entirety and embrace the unification agenda of the Arapaja led executive.”
