The statement said the party has also set up a 199-member Governorship Campaign Elders’ Consultative Forum led by the information minister and peopled by elder statesmen such as Dr Amuda Aluko; former governor Cornelius Adebayo; Prof Saka Nuhu; Prof Rasheed Ijaodola; Alhaji LAK Jimoh; Senator Simeon Ajibola; Senator Muhammed Ahmed; Senator Gbemisola Saraki; Titus Ashaolu SAN; Senator Sulaiman Ajadi; Chief Wole Oke; Hon.

The statement added that the two bodies would soon be inaugurated even as the house-to-house ‘Otoge’ (enough is enough) campaign has since started across the state amid unprecedented mass acceptance.
