...calls for cooperation of all stakeholders towards successful exercise

Oyo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a stern warning to external forces who are planning to sabotage the December 12 party’s membership registration and revalidation exercise to stay away or be dealt with decisively.

Recall, Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) had, on Monday, announced the commencement of a 4-week party’s membership registration and revalidation, which is going to take place simultaneously in all the 774 local Government areas of the country. The exercise commences on 12th December 2020 and ends on 9th January 2021.

In a press release issued on Wednesday in Ibadan by the party’s Assistant Publicity Secretary – Prince Ayobami Adejumo, the APC said thay the exercise was critical to the future of the party as it was necessary for all stakeholders comprising APC leadership at all levels, genuine democrats and patriots to play their part and ensure the exercise record a huge success.

The statement noted that all hands must be on deck in order to ensure a hitch-free and all-inclusive exercise. It stressed that exernal forces planning to polarize the party in the state for selfish reasons must stay away or be ready to lick their own wounds.

The party assured that it is already putting in place all necessary arrangements to accommodate both the teeming existing and prospective members across the 351 electoral Wards in Oyo State.

The statement read in part: “The Chief Akin Oke-led Executive Committee will leave no stone unturned to make the atmosphere conducive for all stakeholders and supporters of our great party to work together and come up with accurate data bank for party faithful as desired”.

“What is more important to us is how to ensure that every willing person is captured in the party’s data base regardless of their location and physical status before the end of it all. The situation in Oyo state now indicates that electorate would be willing to return us to power again in 2023 as doing so would afford them the opportunity to have unhindered access to public safety, improved infrastructure, clean environment, prosperity among other basic things which the current PDP administration has shown that it lacked the capacity to provide.”

The Akin Oke-led state executives appealed to the party’s national headquarters not to give any room for saboteurs and divisive elements who might want to compromise the smooth conduct of the exercise in the state .

“As it stands now, the question of individuals or groups trying to outdo one another is not expected before and during the exercise because the goal of membership registration and revalidation goes beyond self aggrandizement or settling of scores among gladiators”.

“This time, we would not close our eyes at the possible incursion of some external forces backed by some overzealous political players within the APC who are still hellbent on sponsoring crisis in Oyo APC for their own selfish ends ahead of the next general elections. As a matter of fact, the national leadership of our great party is being put on notice that we are capable of handling the exercise as one united family because stakeholders are aware of the task before the party in the state” the statement concluded
