His words: “We are meeting tomorrow at 8 AM because of some logistics reasons. We have informed the candidates. The party leaders have embarked on consultation and reconciliation to ensure a peaceful congress.

“The screening committee, Petition and Grievance Resolution committee. The two committees will be on the ground tomorrow, and if there is any ground of disagreement it would be resolved tomorrow. If there are no grievances then there is no need to resolve anything and it is cheaper and faster to resolves before going to congress.

Good numbers of committee members are already on the ground. We are trying to make sure we remain one family. We are hopeful that everything will happen peacefully. We should allow peace.

As at press time yesterday, the venue of the congress was yet to be made public due to the tension between the two factions. Already, the Fayose faction has rejected the appointment of Sen. Dino Melaye as the chairman of Congress Screening Committee.
