The Deputy’s Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Oyo State, Hon. Lekan Adeyemo, has urged elected party leaders at all levels to work towards party unity.
He stated this at the inauguration of party executives in Ibadan which include chairmen and secretaries, across the 33 local governments and 351 wards in the state, held in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Adeyemo, who conducted the ceremony, charged the new party executives to immediately commence the process of reconciling all aggrieved members of the APC in the state.
“Our party constitution says it is mandatory for elected party executives to be sworn-in. All our new party executives at the state level have been sworn-in and today we are conducting yours too.
“I am using this occasion to urge you all to go back home and forge unity among party members in your various constituencies to ensure the continuous success of our party.
“There is no party as big as ours that will not experience occasional internal crisis. However, our responsibility as leaders is to ensure that differences are amicably resolved. This is why you are being empowered today,” he said.
Adeyemo also disclosed that party executives at the state level had commenced reconciliation efforts among aggrieved party members and urged the newly-inaugurated executives to replicate same within their various jurisdictions.
Similarly, the state party secretary, Mr Mojeed Olaoya, urged them to ensure that aggrieved members were reconciled at their various wards and local governments.
Olaoya noted that the peaceful conduct of the congress had reaffirmed the fact that APC Is a highly organised and disciplined party.
“It is important that the message is re-echoed that the essence of party leadership is to entrench peace and harmony. You are to go back home and ensure peace and sanity in your respective constituencies,” he further stated.
A legal practitioner, Mr Segun Abayomi, administered the oath of office on the new party executives at the state party secretariat.
