Speaking on the crisis, its implication and the role of external forces, he described Governor Makinde as a man who understands the politics of Osun to an extent.

While explaining the kind of intervention Governor Makinde can make to save the party in the state, he said, “When there was crisis in the Lagos PDP, Makinde went to the state to resolve the dispute. Osun is closer to Oyo State; we do share positions, so he should have come to Osun before going to Lagos.

“Therefore, there is nothing stopping him from intervening in the Osun PDP crisis. But it appears they did not even deem it necessary to contact on the matter. In fact, they didn’t contact anybody, including Prince Oyinlola, as a former governor of Osun State, neither did they contact or reach out to any of the remaining BoT members and other elders of the PDP.

“Nobody is against Ademola, but let him come for a fair primary election; if he emerges, no problem. Those forces behind him are insisting he must be the sole candidate in an era when the Supreme Court can remove governors a day to their being sworn in.

“We must do our homework diligently and efficiently; that we do proper primary and no imposition so that you will not give anybody the slightest chance to resort to litigation, pre or post-primary election.

“We don’t want to be ridiculed by the Supreme Court as it has warned us that politicians should gather their acts together.”
