Ajayi Boroffice, the Senator representing Ondo North Senatorial District has warned that it will be very disastrous for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state under the government of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to pursue the 2019 general election with a ‘divided house’. Senator Boroffice advised that it would be more honorable for Governor Akeredolu to lead a genuine reconciliation of all aggrieved party members in the state before aiming to work for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari, who has shown interest to run for a second term in office. He stated this in a press statement issued by his media aide, Kayode Fakuyi to journalists in Akure, yesterday to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir. The Senator said that there is no hiding in the fact that the crisis and disaffection rocking the APC in the state still exist and unabated. “It is incumbent on Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to demonstrate favorable disposition towards party cohesion and lead genuine reconciliatory agenda. “Just like it is suicidal for an army to approach war with a divided and disunited army, it is dangerous for Ondo APC to pursue the 2019 general elections with a divided and disunited party”. He said. Boroffice disclosed that the leaders and members of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Ondo state needs to embrace peaceful harmony ahead of the 2019 general election.

“In this atmosphere of Eid el-Kabir, it is imperative to admonish all leaders and members of the APC in Ondo State to come together, build party cohesion and work together for the electoral success of President Muhammadu Buhari and other APC flagbearers in the 2019 general elections. “There is no denying the fact that there are many issues that have given leeway to all manners of speculations and postulations about crises and disaffections within the APC in Ondo State. “However, it is time for all aggrieved leaders, all dissatisfied members, all factional tendencies and all political groups to drop their grievances and come together as a party to deliver massive victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections. “It is time for all party men and party women of conscience to be guided by the lessons of history. Recent political history has availed worthy lessons that should guide us to create the future of our party. “Party members should be reminded that party cohesion was one of the major factors that triggered the great outing of the APC in the 2015 general elections in Ondo State” he said. The Ondo Senator stated that without party cohesion the APC would not have defeated the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State in the November 2016 governorship election. According to Boroffice, the members of the party should not lose focus on the ultimate target, which is to ensure an all round victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates in Ondo State. “For this target to be reached, everybody is important. The importance of party members should not be taken for granted. It is time to work together for victory.
