The minister in a leaked memo released on Wednesday, stated that the “unity” in the party may be short-lived if the party went ahead with its planned congresses under the leadership of Mr Buni.

He premised his warning on the split decision of the Supreme Court to uphold Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo State earlier on Wednesday.
