He stated that their disunity, led to the victory of Abiola Ajimobi in the 2015 governorship election in the state.

“The present governor is ruling with just 32 per cent of the vote cast because the PDP house was not in order. Let us make the PDP the winning party again because there’s no need to be in a party that is losing,” Adeyeye said.

Adeyeye also urged stakeholders of the party from Osun State who also visited the PDP secretariat, to put their house in order, adding that “We want to bring everybody together and it is clear that all those maintaining hard-line position will not take us anywhere.

On his part, Senator Makarfi said that now that the Supreme Court has resolved the leadership crisis in the PDP, it was time to translate same to political success.

“We’ve gotten judiciary victory, we need to consolidate and translate it into political victory. Political victory means expanding the scope of the party, reconciling with the reconciliables and attracting members into the party that will enable us regain political power at the centre by overwhelming majority.

“What I don’t want is for one party to dominate. We want a healthy competitive democracy where people will freely choose their leaders.

“We must have a large heart, but having a large heart doesn’t mean that we will not be conscious of the role played by each and everyone of us.”
