The Peoples Democratic Party has set up a reconciliation committee headed by a former President of the Senate, David Mark, to settle the rifts among its members in Ekiti State.

Mark, it was learnt, would be assisted by the Deputy Vice Chairman of the party in the South-West, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, and others whose identities were not known as of the time of filing this report.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, confirmed the setting up of the committee in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja on Monday.

He said, “Yes, it is true we have set up a committee headed by Senator David Mark on Ekiti State. The committee is credible and its members were carefully chosen with a mandate to settle the rift.

“The state is important to us and we don’t want to play with it because after winning there, we will then move to Osun State to liberate them.”

But when our correspondent contacted Adeyeye on the peace initiative, he said he had yet to be informed about the committee.

“Well, I have not been contacted; but if contacted, I will take part. We are all desirous of winning the election and I can also tell you that I will win the primary.”
