He noted that the six House of Representatives seats and eight House of Assembly seats which the party won in the last election were due to the efforts of the candidates and a few party leaders.
He noted that all the chieftains of the party that have dumped the party left because of George.
Olorunoje, who became the acting Chairman of the party after the suspension of the substantive Chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle, dismissed claims that he was only representing a faction of the party.
He noted that he heads the entire organ of the party since members of the SWC had given him unanimous support.
