Party officials of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ibadan North East Local Government of Oyo state have hinted at the readiness of their party to hoist the present PDP led administration of the state come 2023, stating that the political drive and comradeship within the APC is an indication of the party’s return to its potential.
According to Oyo Affairs, The Caretaker Chairman of the party in Ibadan North East, Hon. Rasaq Ekundayo, who led senior members of the APC, made this statement in a meeting of the party executives and 12 ward chairman in the local government with Jide Adeyemi, a party stalwart and Chief Executive Officer of Big and Bold Communications at the party Secretariat, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.
Adeyemi in the course of the meeting said that judging by the recent events within the state and the party, it is apparent that APC is the party, people want to relate with and believe in.
“People have moved into APC from different parties in recent times because it is the party for all and a party with great antecedents in the state. If you look back, you will remember Late Governors Lam Adesina and Abiola Ajimobi that ruled this state and entrenched peace, tranquillity and development that we have lost in recent times.
“Of course, this is one of the reasons the party needs to return to power; so we can experience peace and development. We want to experience this again and APC is the platform with which Oyo State can smile again,” Adeyemi stated.
The chairman added that his meeting with leaders in his council is to acclimatize himself with them while discussing his plan for the people and the party, saying that the only thing left is for members to ensure unity within the party because now is the time for members to unite and work towards bailing the state so that peace can reign again.
Hon. Ekundayo while speaking to the attendees of the meetings stated that the meeting is a welcomed development because the unification Adeyemi brought to the party will put them all in good conditions, characterizing him as a people’s man, and a man who loves team players.
Additionally, he stated that the fact that politicians are defecting to the APC is proof of growth as peoples tend to associate with growth and progress and that the APC is known to accommodate various vision and interest.
