The party’s state Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday that Oyinlola’s experience as a former governor would be an added advantage in uniting aggreived members.
“We have confidence in him. He is full of experience. He has been former governor of two states of the six South-West states.
“Hence, all sentiments can be appreciated by him. He has also been in and out, and now in.
“So, we must appreciate the need for PDP to reconcile in order to take over the South-West and indeed Nigeria,” he said.
Gani added:””We urge him to allow full participation and justice for all in the interest of the PDP.
“She was deputy governor in Lagos State. We repose full confidence in the committee to do justice and reconcile all. We wish them best of luck.”
NAN reports that Oyinlola was appointed by South-West leaders of the PDP to head a five-man committee to reconcile aggrieved members of the party in the region for unity and success in future elections.
Other members of the reconciliation committee are: Mrs Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, Ambassador Omolade Oluwateru; Chief Saka Balogun and Olayinka Kukoyi.
Leaders of the party in the South-West after a meeting in Ibadan on Thursday had called on the national leadership of the party to bring all aggrieved factions in the former ruling party together.
