In continuation of his reconciliation efforts, the South West PDP National Vice Chairman, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, Tuesday led members of the executive to meet with the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, at his Ikeja residence.
The Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the PDP National Vice Chairman, Bamitale Ibrahim, in a release made available to journalists in Ibadan, said the former governor gave a warm reception to his guests, stating that he is open to true reconciliation so as to move the party forward.
Arapaja in his remarks, denied what he termed misinformation going around that it was the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus who begged him to visit Fayose after his consistent plea that he should be visited, noting that this is the handiwork of mischief makers who are fanning the embers of discord within the party.
According to him, neither Secondus nor the former governor initiated the move for reconciliation but was borne out of the initiative of the South West executive under his leadership to unify the party in line with the campaign promises he made.
The meeting has in attendance Hon. Rahmon Owokoniran, Zonal Secretary; Chief (Mrs.) Bose Adedibu, Woman Leader; Barr. Gbenga Kukoyi, Legal Adviser; Mr Rasaq Adewoyin, Financial Secretary; Chief Olusanya Atofarati, Publicity Secretary; Engr. Adedeji Doherty, Chairman, PDP Lagos State; Rev. Bunmi Jenyo, former Zonal Secretary, Hon. Prince Daisi Akintan; former Caretaker Zonal Secretary and Mrs Funmilayo Ogun, former member Zonal Caretaker Committee, among many other party faithful.
