Ladoja recently issued a seven-day ultimatum to the NWC of the PDP over some unsettled crisis rocking the state chapter of the party. 

The APC faction otherwise known as Unity Forum in the other hand, after a face-off with the governor of the state,  senator Abiola Ajimobi threatened to quit the party,  if the NWC refuses to address the crisis.
