The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State is now set for a rancour free and unhindered governorship primary following the reconciliation of warring factions.
This is the outcome of a reconciliation meeting headed by former President of the Senate and PDP stalwart, Senator David Mark, in Abuja.
This was contained in a statement issued by Paul Mumeh, the Media Assistant to Mark, in Abuja on Saturday.
The Mark-led reconciliation committee members included Senator Enyinaya Abaribe, Ambassador Ibrahim Kazaure, Alhaji YusuF Ayitogo, Ambassador Fidelia Njeze and Dr. Eddy Olafeso (Secretary).
The aspirants who have indicated interest for the plum position so far are the Deputy Governor Kolapo Olusola Eleka, Senator Biodun Olujimi, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Ambassador Dare Dejide and Owoseni Ajayi.
Reeling out the resolutions of the peace parley, Olafeso said the state Governor, Ayo Fayose, and all the aspirants attended the meeting.
Olafeso said all the parties agreed to a free, fair and credible primary to elect a gubernatorial candidate for the July poll.
Olafeso added that Fayose pledged to work with any of the contestants who emerges at the primary.
He said nobody was persuaded or compelled to withdraw from the race.
Trouble started in Ekiti State ahead of the election when Fayose adopted his Deputy as his successor.
Mark cautioned the gladiators that only peace, justice, free and fair primary would guarantee success at the Ekiti State poll.
The former Senate president appreciated the warring parties for their display of maturity and understanding towards the resolution of the dispute.
The Mark reconciliation committee was set up by the Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee of the PDP to reconcile the members in Ekiti State.
