A chieftain of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Oyo State, Alhaji Adebisi Olopoeniyan, has explained the rationale behind his decision to boycott the reconciliatory meeting of the party.

Olopoeniyan noted that he decided to shun the meeting because of his safety.

Saga Gist recalls that former Senate President, Bukola Saraki and some PDP chieftains were in Ibadan on Tuesday to reconcile some aggrieved members of the party.

Our correspondent learnt that Saraki immediately after arriving Ibadan held a brief meeting with the aggrieved members at an hotel around Idi Ape area of Ibadan.

The reconciliatory committee later left the hotel for another meeting at the Presidential Wing of Oyo State government house in Agodi.

It was, however, gathered that Olopoeniyan and other aggrieved members of the party did not attend the meeting held at the government House.

Olopoeniyan in his explanation, maintained that he shunned the government House meeting because of his security.

He added that he decided to steer clear of the meeting because he had no confidence in Governor Seyi Makinde of the State.

Olopoeniyan who spoke with journalists Tuesday night said that one of the requests by the aggrieved PDP members tabled before the committee is that the PDP executive council in the state should be dissolved.

He added that what he and other members of the party want was stability of the party.

“After the meeting in the hotel, I decided not to go for the enlarged meeting at the Government House because of my safety. The government is hobnobbing with Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi, also known as Auxillary.

“But the committee has not given any judgment. The committee said they gave the governor till the end of this month (August) to reconcile all the aggrieved members. I believe Saraki-led committee would do the right thing. But I don’t have confidence in Seyi Makinde, until I see it done.

“We have not left the party. It is our party. We are together. We don’t want the party to be in disarray. Saraki said he would not allow anyone to destabilize the party. I am not asking for anything other than the party to be a united one.

“One of the requests that we tabled before the committee is that the PDP executive council in the state should be dissolved. Let the caretaker committee be set up. We are preparing for the congress. Let the caretaker committee organise the congress. All I wanted is the stability of the party.”
