Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on Saturday asked aggrieved members of the party to give room for resolution of the prolonged factional crisis rocking the party in the state. 
The governor while speaking at  Ward 11, Ibadan North East Local Government ward congress called for unity among members of the PDP in the state.
Governor Makinde expressed 
happy at  the excitement by the people of Oyo State about the ruling party (PDP) in the state, saying,  “I see excitement with the people. They want to be participants in the democratic process to select their leaders to run the affairs of the party at the ward level”.
” So, for me, it is democracy in action. “And also with the fact that we have been in government slightly above two years now, the people are still excited about their party. It is something that calls for celebration for us”, he said.
Gov Makinde added, “well, the exercise today went peacefully. I expect other congresses to be peaceful as well. “Everywhere around the state, the people are excited because they are getting dividends of democracy. So, I believe the excitement is all over the state.”
The governor emphasized the need for members of the party to stay united, stressing that the time has come for the aggrieved members to bring their grievances  to the table for amicable resolution.
” For the PDP members in Oyo State, I want to ask them to stay unified because we can do quite a lot in unity. “And for some who are angry or aggrieved, let them bring their issues to the table, we will address them. Politics is about conflict and resolution of conflict within interaction of people.”

Speaking further, the governor declared that  PDP has come to stay in Oyo state, and that the party will soon  take power at the Federal level. 
“So, we are not ruling out making overtures to them and getting them also to be a part of this process. This is because PDP is here to stay in Oyo State and the PDP is also poised to take over power at the Federal level. So, you don’t leave a winning team,”
