The spokesman for the National Caretaker Committee of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said, “The committee has been under pressure to wield the big stick against Sheriff and his group.
“But we will continue to extend the olive branch after all it is yielding result.
“Sheriff cannot be bigger than the party. The decision of the convention is greater than Sheriff and others.
