The governor, who met with all critical stakeholders in Oyo, said that all the aggrieved members of the party in the constituency had been reconciled and now could go into the general elections as a united family.
Also at the town hall meeting held at the Atiba Hall, Oyo, Makinde declared that if he is re-elected, there would be an upgrade of good governance, hence the campaign theme Omituntun 2.0.
He, therefore, charged all residents and indigenes of Oyo State to vote for all candidates of the PDP in the 2023 general election.
