A member of the camp who spoke with GOALPOACHER NEWS correspondent on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution on Sunday morning said the candidate of the party in Oorelope, Olorunsogo and Irepo Federal Constituency in the 2019 elections, Hon Michael Okunlade is being tipped to emerge from their camp as factional chairman of the party.

According to the party chieftain, “don’t forget Hon Michael Okunlade is the closest ally of Hon Mulika Akande. Okunlade is a grassroot mobilizer, an astute politician who has paid his dues in the party.”

“If he emerged as our chairman, so be it. He has the clout to lead our party in the state and reposition it future elections.”

“But I won’t disclose how our excos will look like but I can tell you that our chairman will come from Oke Ogun.

However, it was gathered that Michael Okunlade was absent at the party secretariat Molete on Saturday while other members of their camp were screened by the panel sent from the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja.
