A CHIEFTAIN of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Ekiti State, Hon Opeyemi Falegan, has called for genuine reconciliation among party members in the state following the internal crisis that erupted after the ward, council and state congresses of the state chapter.

Leadership crisis between ex-Governor Ayodele Fayose and Senator Biodun Olujimi had polarised the party into two factions whereby they conducted parallel congresses producing parallel party’s executives.

Falegan, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, expressed fear over the fortune of the PDP in the state, urging the Uche Secondus-led NWC to intitiate genuine reconciliation in order to salvage the party from collapse ahead of the 2022 gubernatorial poll.

He said,”What needed within the PDP in the state now is a genuine and unbaised reconciliatory mechanism that will bring all together as members of the same family,” Falegan said.

“PDP leaders across the board must strive to work together as an indefatigable and united entity in order to reclaim power from the All Progressive Congress (APC) during the 2022 governorship election in the state.”

“The expression of fundamental human rights by the two factions within the party in the current tussle is, no doubt, an indication that members of the party in Ekiti still believe in democracy. After all, the latest move would only strengthen the party after a genuine reconcillation that must be accepted to all groups and stakeholders”.

Falegan added, “Past leadership crises within the PDP both in Ekiti State and national levels that had been resolved genuinely in the past had also served as a recipe to members who had erstwhile lost confidence in the party and this development had attracted them back to the party and made it a more formidable and united party before.
