The immediate elder brother to the Oyo State Governor Engr Seyi Makinde, Chief Muyiwa Makinde has revealed what might be the long last lingering issues between the governor and the PDP chieftain Alhaji Adebisi Olopoeniyan.

The claim by the Ibadan chief is in tandem with the position of Governor Makinde’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Bayo Lawal who had described Olopoeyan as an overrated politician.
When asked to comment on the crisis rocking the PDP in the Southwest and the leadership tussle between Governor Makinde and former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, the Governor’s elder brother noted that the crisis will be resolved soon.
Speaking further, Mr Makinde revealed that Fayose’s ex-deputy, Professor Olusola Eleka is a consultant to the Oyo State Government.
Recall Eleka doubled as Commissioner for Education in Ekiti State in which Ekiti took first position in two consecutive years in 2016 and 2017 National Examination Council (NECO). That feat could have been responsible for the appointment of Eleka by Governor Makinde.
