The 12 aggrieved governorship aspirants on the platform of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, has given conditions for peace, OYO INSIGHT has learnt.
This newspaper had reported how the aspirants protested what they described as the imposition of Sen. Olufemi Lanlehin as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2019 election.
Only few weeks ago, the aspirants sued Lanlehin and other top leaders of the party. Few days after, some national and state assembly aspirants also took the party and other top leaders of the party to court over what they also described a imposition.
Sources told OYO INSIGHT that the aspirants, who recently met a delegation of the party led by the chairman, Chief Ralph Nwosu, said they can only withdraw their case from court if only they could be allowed to pick a consensus candidate from among themselves.
This, according to the aspirants, became necessary as there is no time on the side of the party to conduct primaries.
The leadership of the party, It was learnt, inaugurated a reconciliation committee to talk to the aggrieved aspirants. That was after former governor Rashidi Ladoja, who was accused of ‘imposing’ Lanlehin, was prevailed upon to dump his defection to the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP.
