The State chapter of the party has been enmershed in crisis over which of the faction will have the control of the soul of the party.

The two warring factions battling for the soul of the party are the one loyal to the state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi known as SENACO and the one loyal to a former governor of the state, Lamidi Adesina known as LAMISTS now called Unity Forum.
