Osun APC rejects Adeleke’s LGs caretaker appointment


The All Progressives Congress, APC in Osun State has rejected the composition of caretaker committees for local government in the state by Governor Ademola Adeleke.

A group within the party the Omoluabi Caucus has disowned APC members appointed into the state’s local government caretaker committee.

A former state chairman of Osun APC, Adelowo Adebiyi, who is the group’s coordinator said this Thursday in a statement in Osogbo, the state capital.

According to him, APC members appointed were picked by Gov Adeleke on personal ground not as APC representatives or member of the caucus.

Adebiyi said “We restate unequivocally that at no time did the defunct TOP enter into any agreement with the PDP to work for it; which might warrant the erroneous compensation as being falsely spread by the mischief makers. But we know that the mischief makers have programmed their mind to continue smearing our caucus’s reputation as part of their various failed attempts to denigrate our patron, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.”

Reiterating the stance of the pro-Aregbesola faction of the APC, Adebiyi said, “To us, the issue involved in the Osun APC crisis is based on fundamental wellbeing of the party and its purposeful usefulness for the sake of its establishment and pursuit, and not for any personal pursuit.

We additionally note that our position has been for the essential need to rejuvenate, reorganise, refurbish and re-energise the structure of the party for achieving electoral victories. It is unfortunate that the self-centred and politically naive individuals and groups rejected our efforts with violence and onslaught.

“Incidentally and sadly, our rejected position has been scientifically vindicated with the embarrassing loss of more than 99% of the electoral positions and invariably loss of power in the state.”

He insisted that the Omoluabi Caucus like the defunct ”The Osun Progressives, TOP were the elite and no amount of effort will make it abandon the party.
