Opinion: Arapaja's Reconciliation With Olopoeyan, A Right Decision At The Right Time

The Reconciliation meeting of The Peoples Democratic Party PDP Vice chairman in southwest, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja with one of the chieftains of the Party, Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan in Ibadan, oyo state is a right decision at the right time. It should be recalled that Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja emerged as Chairman of PDP in southwest in the just concluded Congress of the Party. Eddy Olafeso contested against Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja during the Congress but Arapaja defeated Eddy Olafeso.

It should also be recalled that, the Governor of Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde and Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja belong to the same faction in the Party. The Governor gave the necessary support to Arapaja during the Congress. Meanwhile, There is a conflict between Governor Seyi Makinde and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan. The conflict emanated as a result of inability of Governor Makinde to satisfy the needs of some Party faithfuls in the Party.

It was obvious that some Leaders of the Party in oyo state which Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan happens to be one of them didn't support the emergence of Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja. But in his bid to settle the crisis in the Party and to mediate the aggrieved members of the Party together, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja has met with Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan, Nureni Akanbi and other aggrieved members of the Party to forget what has happened in the Past and work together for the Progress of the Party ahead the 2023 Polls.

Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja emphasized on the needs for the Party to work together ahead the forthcoming Polls. He made it known that the Legacy of the PDP Leader, Late Alhaji Ariyibi Lamidi Adedibu must be strictly adheres to, therefore the Party Leaders must see one another as one family in the Party and Work towards the same goal. Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja has done well to get in touch with the aggrieved members of the party.

It would have been difficult for Governor Makinde to realise his second term in office as Governor of the state, If all the Party Leaders refused to support Governor Seyi Makinde Governorship ambition. Recalled that Governor Makinde has earlier reconciled with Ayo Fayose. Fayose and the Governor embraced each other, immediately after the congress which is an indication that Fayose's loyalists will work together with Makinde.
