Senator Rashidi Ladoja, an ex-governor of Oyo State has said he will resolve the discord between Governor Seyi Makinde and the ex-governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
Sources say that Ladoja has been reached out to over the issue and he has given his word to initiate a peace meeting starting with Fayose and his group, with the meeting likely to hold in Ibadan, soonest.
In the meantime, a more comprehensive meeting with the involvement of more stakeholders will follow the meeting between the two former governors.
We all know that Governor Makinde, being the only PDP governor and makes him the default leader of the party in the South-West, but he has been involved in a disagreement with Fayose over the leadership of the party in the zone.
Moreover, a credible source who chose to be anonymous told reporters that Ladoja and Fayose spoke for about half an hour via a Phone call, about the issue at hand.
The details of the said call showed Ladoja questioning Fayose’s attitude towards his [Ladoja’s] political son, a question which Fayose diplomatically replied failing to submit a direct answer.
Another source gathered that the first meeting would have taken place last Friday, but Ladoja was not present in Ibadan.
Also, Dr Sikirulai Ogundele, the Ogun State chairman of the PDP and chairman of the South-West chairmen, has said that a meeting would take place to resolve all lingering crisis.
