The South-West PDP called on all leaders of the party in Osun State to shelve their personal interests and join hands with the Hon Sunday Bisi led State Working Committee to move the party forward.
The statement read: “This judgement has put to rest all agitations as to who the chairman of our party is in Osun State.
“It is also a lesson for those who, because of the position they are occupying, see themselves as superior to the party.
“Going forward, all members of the PDP in the South-West are enjoined to respect decisions of the party’s National Working Committee at all times and those using their positions to promote factions in the zone by relating with impostors as State Chairmen should stop.
“Once again, to our party stakeholders in Osun State, it is now time for consolidation. Congratulations to the PDP family.”
