Barely two days after details about the grieverances of top stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State against Governor Seyi Makinde became public, the governor has sued for peace among leaders and members of the party.
The final report of the Elders Steering Committee of the PDP in Oyo State had revealed grievances of party members against Makinde focusing on being sidelined and not compensated for their efforts in ensuring victory of Makinde at the 2019 governorship poll.
However, the Governor, while speaking during the swearing in of Mr Lawal Ayansiju as the state commissioner, on Tuesday, gave assurances that he will attend to their desires.
He said: “I will like to seize this opportunity to tell some of our people who are still angry because the goodies have not gotten to them that patience is the watchword.
“You will get them; you will keep moving. Surely, as opportunities present themselves, we will bring the people on board.”
The event held at governor’s office saw Makinde announce that the newly sworn-in Lawal Ayansiju is to serve as Commissioner for Establishment and Training.
He consequently moved Professor Dahud Sangodoyin, who previously held the portfolio, to the Public Works, Infrastructure and Transport ministry.
The position of Commissioner of Public Works, Infrastructure and Transport had been left vacant since Makinde sacked Professor Raphael Afonja on August 10.
