The factions were represented and they all agreed to work today together and speak with one voice
Dr Fayemi while responding to questions from journalist said All is settled, we are now a united front as a party moving strongly towards retaking Oyo state and working in the interest of progressive politics”
“I am not aware of any group. I am aware of stakeholders in our party, some who for one reason or the other are disaffected and felt that certain things ought to be done to bring everybody on board and that is what we have done and they are all here. Every segment of our party came to the meeting here today.”
“The target is to win the state. Can there be any other target? The target is to remove my brother, Seyi Makinde. Seyi Makinde is my very good friend and brother.
