THE Peoples Democratic Party has named a former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Shuaibu Oyedokun and eight others as members of a 10-man committee to reconcile the six governorship aspirants in Osun State ahead of the July 16 election.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, disclosed this to reporters on Wednesday, as part of the resolutions of the National Working Committee meeting held with the Osun State PDP stakeholders at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to him, the meeting, chaired by the PDP National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, has given the special committee one week to liaise with the six aspirants and resolve their grievances amicably.
The aspirants include a former lawmaker, Ademola Adeleke; the former Secretary to Osun State Government, Abdulateef Akinbade; Akin Ogunbiyi; Omirin Olusanya, Dele Adeleke and Dotun Babayemi.
The NWC also directed the committee and the aspirants to return to the state to commence their meetings.
Ologunagba said, “The NWC, members of the National Assembly and other stakeholders agreed that in line with the position of the party to carry every organ of the party along, the meeting decided that we should seek an Osun State solution.
“We cannot begin to resolve issues at the National without involving stakeholders and local leaders who are more abreast with issues concerning Osun State PDP. The decision of the meeting is that they will go and meet on all issues.
