He called for unity among members of the party in the state and urged aggrieved members to give room for more dialogue and resolution.

“For the PDP members in Oyo State, I want to ask them to stay unified because we can do quite a lot in unity; and for some who are angry or aggrieved, let them bring their issues to the table, we will address them.

“Politics is about conflict and resolution of conflict within the interaction of people,” the governor stated.

He called on members of the PDP to stay united, stressing that the time has come for the aggrieved members to bring their grievances to the table for an amicable resolution.
