Commissioner for Information Kayode Akinmade however said that due to “serious Pressure” from the Leadership of the PDP before and after the Osun governorship election, the governor is still consulting with stakeholders across the Country on this”

“For now the governor is still in Labour Party even if he will eventually move he cannot take a unilateral decision on this matter,” Akinmade added.
