The communique was signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Dayo Owolabi.

The communique reads:  “The party sympathizes with civil servants in the state and we apologize on behalf of the PDP for the misconduct of Mr. Governor and the party promises to advise him to toe the line of reasoning in the circumstance.

“The party resolves to bring dividends of democracy to the doorsteps of an average Ekiti person.

“The party resolves to work tirelessly towards reconciling the aggrieved members and bring back those who had abandoned the party.

“The purported meetings and/or congress held by Mr. Gboyega Oguntuase and his cronies are in contempt of the subsisting order of the honourable court.

“Any threat or act of intimidation by Mr. Governor or anyone acting for and on his behalf shall be reported to the appropriate security agencies for prompt action.

“The PDP under Chief Williams Ajayi welcomes all and sundry into its fold without fear, favour or Ill-will.”
