Forget Your Differences; Makinde preaches peace within Oyo PDP

By Our Correspondent

The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has called on stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party to put aside their differences and work towards the unity of the party.

He made this appeal during the ongoing retreat organised by the party for elected officials in Bauchi, Bauchi State, on Saturday.

Makinde, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sulaimon Olanrewaju, in Ibadan, on Sunday, further admonished party members to put aside issues capable of causing division in the PDP as a result of the in-fighting that occurred during the general elections and embrace peace.

The governor said, “Well, I want to point out that we went through a gruelling election, and whether we want to admit it or not, we had issues amongst ourselves during the elections. But, you know what? The healing process has to start and it must start now.

“We must focus on things that will unite us. We must, as a matter of urgency, be forward-looking. We have to tell ourselves the home truth. One thing I can say is that the governors of the PDP, who are present here, are willing, ready, and able to play a stabilising role in this party.

“Let me conclude by saying that government will come and go, but our country will remain. And, as a responsible opposition party, we must, where it is required, do things in the interest of this country. This is because if there is no Nigeria, there is no us.

“So, it is safer to offer a chance that offers itself and extemporise the procedure to fit it, rather than making plans, mature and waiting for an opportunity to use that plan,” he stressed.
