“They should not create more other than to resolve all the crisis within the party. By so doing, we will be able to have rest of mind in the party.

“As it is today, let me be frank with you, nobody is happy with what is happening in the PDP being the ruling party for 16, years and all of a sudden everything is in disarray.

“Let’s be realistic, if Fayose wants to perform well, he should find a way of settling the crisis in the party.”

He said that the party would not get itself right until the people in the party get themselves rights by sheating their swords and come together.

“He (Fayose) is outspoken and he is a committed leader of the party. Fayose deserves it. We need people like him that are outspoken.

“Meanwhile, the urgent task ahead of him is to see how all the stakeholders in the party can come together as a united family.

“Fayose should ensure that concerted effort is geared towards reconciling all factions especially at the top. This is a big issue, it is key,” he said.
