Latterly, loyalists of the incumbent governor and those of his predecessor held parallel ward and local regime congresses, forming separate political party executives.
After the ward congress, the duo of Senators Tolu Odebiyi (Ogun Westward) and Lekan Mustapha (Ogun East), both of whom are of the Amosun campsite, submitted petitions and appeared before the panel.
Nevertheless nonetheless, the Secretarial assistant of the appeal commission, Chucks Chinwnba, said the panel did not have whatever petition on the local regime congress.

“Yesterday (Fri), we held a coming together with the political party’s (caretaker) chairman and the political party executive. The thought was to discuss with them and regain out whether there are complaints. In a household you could have disagreements, it is the business of this appeal commission to take everybody together and I think we have succeeded.
“There is a sharing formula that was made known to us, 60-40 or 80-20. It is working and that is why we have relative peace”, Chinwnba stated.

“There is no written petition in the province, different the ward congress. And so, we interacted with the petitioners, but at present there is no petition sent to the national secretariat.
“This is a household affair and we treated it as such, whatever quarrel you have at present, you just have to reconcile with yourselves since we have decided to remain in the same political political party apart from you want to cast your have political party which in this instance, you will leave of absence the political party and leave of absence the relaxation there. So we regard this as a household issue and we have treated it as such,” Ojo explained.
