Prominent leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State have passed a vote of no confidence in the governor of the state, Engineer Seyi Makinde.
The leaders, who include Alhaji Adebisi Olopoeyan, a popular PDP leader in the state, Femi Babalola, Nureni Akanbi, and others, stated this in a statement read by Michael Okunlade following the stakeholders/elders meeting held in Ibadan ahead of the party's congress, which begins on September 25, 2021.
PDP leaders spoke at the well-attended conference, which drew people from all 33 local government areas of Oyo State, said the governors ignored those who helped him win and threatened to work against him in 2023.
Some PDP members also asked Makinde to leave the party at the meeting.
The politicians urged members to attend the congress and avoid violence, claiming the problem would be resolved in a way that benefited the disgruntled members of the opposition party.
The governor hasn't responded to the statement made by the aggrieved members as at the time of this report.
