The party made this known in a statement signed by its state Publicity Secretary, Engr. Akeem Olatunji and made available to newsmen on Sunday.
The party explained that two core hallmarks of the Seyi Makinde led government is integrity and purposeful leadership which has trickled down to all facet of life and rapid development in the state.
According to the statement, Governor Makinde has fulfilled his obligation to the coalition pact in the spirit of truth which includes the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
The ruling party noted that Makinde’s obligation to the coalition should not be mistaken for agreement with Senator Lanlehin as an individual but with ADC as a political party in the coalition.
The party added that there were other notable leaders in ADC as of the time the coalition pact was formed, including Chief Michael Koleosho, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, former Oyo Deputy Governor and Nigeria’s Ambassador, Dr Taofeek Arapaja, former Oyo SSG, Chief Olayiwola Olakojo and other leaders.
The statement further revealed that Lanlehin’s continued bitterness and political miscalculation could not in any way, be attributed to Governor Makinde, stressing that the governor is a PDP from PDP and the only thing he shares in common with ADC was the agreement
