“We admit that misunderstandings and arguments are an essentially unavoidable part of life and of human organizations.

“However, it must be understood by all party members that the Southwest Zone cannot afford any form of dispute; not in this day and age when all hands on deck are needed to secure a resounding electoral victory for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and all other party candidates in the Zone in the upcoming 2023 general election.”

“I appeal to their Excellencies: Governor Abiodun and Senator Amosun, in the name of God and in the interest of the party in the zone, sheath their swords and instruct their supporters to stop laying down public statements that will further divide the party in Ogun. state and in the zone.

“I urge all party believers in the state to stand firm, rest assured, our party will emerge stronger and better”

Senator Amosu and Governor Abiodun were engaged in a war of words with Amosun, claiming that his successor had been smuggled into office and had to be removed, because those involved in the rigging confessed to him and apologized to him.
