Tunde Akanbi,Ilorin


The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has asked the newly elected national Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his team to quickly set in motion machineries that would correct the problems bedevilling the party.

The local chapter said that the conduct of last Saturday’s convention and the drama that heralded it before, during and after the elections have raised a lot of dust that the party’s leadership must immediately resolve.

According to the chapter, it is only through this that the future of APC is guaranteed.

Default setting
In a statement, it resolved that there was urgent need to restore the party to the default setting of sanity, supremacy and constitutionalism.

 “A situation where ‘monkeys’ will be toiling day and night at the grassroots mobilising for the party but some ‘baboons’ will be sitting arrogantly in Abuja without lifting a finger and yet dragging party structure with genuine party members should be done with already.

 “Therefore, we reiterate that the Adams Oshiomole-led APC is coming at a time of a lot of storm in the party which if not properly handled, might affect the chances of the party in the next polls,” Kwara APC chapter warned.

It, however congratulated both the out gone and new national leadership of the party, President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and all leaders of thought who ensured a hitch-free convention.

“We congratulate particularly Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the Publicity Secretary-elect. His re-election by an overwhelming majority of our party members across the 36 states of the federation and Abuja is a testimony to his competence, doggedness and astuteness as our party’s spokesperson. 

 “We urge the winners to be magnanimous in victory. They should embrace and accommodate their co-contestants in the scheme of things, as we all move forward towards nation building,” the statement added.
