On Tuesday, October 4, 2016, Oyegun stressed that there is no rift with the ex-Governor of Lagos though he admitted they both have different opinion and perception.

“There is no rift with Asiwaju; we have difference of opinion, difference of perception, and I think that is normal,” Oyegun said.

In a report by TheCable, Oyegun said though Tinubu had called for his resignation, it won't be happening on the pages of newspapers as there are laid down steps to achieve such requests.

In the words of Oyegun: “Yes, I agree that the nature of the statement was a bit harsh. The method of getting rid of a national chairman, if that is what I will call it, are spelt out in the constitution; they don’t take place on the pages of newspapers.
