Mimiko addressing the meeting said his differences with Fayose have been resolved, while asking the south west PDP to unite in the interest of Yoruba race and the place of the race in the Nigerian equation.
Fayose said he had no issue with some of the south west PDP leaders, including chief bode George, over the party national chairmanship, as being reported in the media
The Ekiti state governor said he had some differences with Mimiko, but blamed them largely on media mis-interpretation, while pledging to sacrifice his interest in the larger interest of the south west PDP
