Former Government Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has explained why he shunned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South-West leaders reconciliation meeting.
The meeting was organised to reconcile Fayose with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
Governor Nyesom Wike, former Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola; former Ekiti State Governor, Mr Segun Oni, Senator Abiodun Olujimi, Makinde and others attended the meeting which was held at the Oyo State Government House in Ibadan.
Ex-Governor Fayose and his loyalist across the South-West however ignored the meeting.
Speaking through his aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said that although he wanted to attend the meeting, his loyalists stopped him because they would not sit on the same table with Makinde due to his utterances and actions.
“Fayose did not attend the meeting. Those invited from the other side said they were not going to be part of the meeting. They said they did not want to go to the Government House or sit on the same table with Governor Makinde.
“The impression as at yesterday (Wednesday) was that the meeting would be shifted but I believe Governor Wike just came to attend it for formality sake.
“One thing is that nothing can be achieved without the other side at the meeting.”
