Rising from a meeting hosted by the first state party chairman and former Senate Deputy Chief Whip, Chief Clement Awoyelu, at the weekend, they resolved to work hard for the party's victory ahead of the 2018 governorship election.

They also resolved to wait on the Court of Appeal, Ado-Ekiti Division to resolve which of the two state executives is the authentic between the Gboyega Oguntuase faction and the William Ajayi faction. The appellate court is expected to deliver its verdict in October.

The Supreme Court had sacked Sheriff on July 13 and handed control of the party to Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led caucus.
