A former Nigerian Ambassador to Uganda, and Ondo state deputy governor, Otunba Omolade Oluwateru has been appointed a member of the southwest PDP reconciliation committee.

The five members committee is headed by former Governor of Osun state, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

Other members of the committee include Chief Saka Balogun, Chief Mrs Kofoworola Bucknor and Mr Olayinka Kukoyi.

The party leaders met at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan on Thursday and released a communique endorsed by the Acting National Vice Chairman, South-West, Hon. Dayo Ogungbenro

In an address on the occasion, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State charged members of the reconciliation committee to ensure that the party become more virile in the South-West.

He also expressed the hope that the PDP would be better repositioned to win future elections in the zone.

The communique read in parts:

“That a 5-man Committee be set up to reconcile all aggrieved and warring factions in the South-West PDP in order to bring about peace and unity in the Party.

That the 10 Zonal Executive Posts be zoned to all states of the South-West as follow: Zonal Chairman (Oyo State), Zonal Secretary (Lagos State), Zonal Publicity Secretary (Ekiti State), Zonal Organising Secretary (Ondo State), Zonal Financial Secretary (Osun State), Zonal Youth Leader (Osun State), Zonal Legal Officer (Ogun State), Zonal Treasurer (Ogun State), Zonal Women Leader (Oyo State) and Zonal Auditor (Lagos State).

The meeting also resolved that, in the spirit of fairness and equity, additional slots of ex-officio members be given to Ekiti and Ondo states in view of the fact that they would occupy only one office each in the zone.

The PDP leaders also used the occasion to call on the Federal Government and the National Assembly not to go-ahead with the proposed clampdown on social media, saying the move will infringe on Nigerians’ freedom of expression.

They called on the Federal Government to strengthen existing laws to prevent the abuse of the freedom of expression.

Earlier, the acting zonal chairman of the South-West PDP, Hon. Ogungbenro said it was high time the party reclaimed the Presidency, saying it has become important to unite all members of the party.

He expressed his happiness that the meeting have a very full house of BoT members who are the conscience of our party, Former Governors and other major stakeholders.

He appealed to aggrieved members to bury their hatchets and forge forward for unity, because it is only in unity that we can achieve what we have on ground.
