Two-party chairmen emerged one for the governor Fayemi's faction and the other one belonging to the faction led by the former Minister of Work Mr. Dayo Adeyeye. If this crisis is not resolved on time it will affect APC's chances of winning the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.

The two factions should bury their interests and allow party supremacy to thrive for the unity, peace, and progress of the party. The two leaders must resolve their political differences to avoid mass defection to the opposition party PDP, which is interested in taking the advantage of the crisis.

2. Opposition Party PDP: the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ekiti State is very strong, they are capable of challenging APC to victory should APC refuse to work as a team ahead of the June governorship election in the state.
