Following the eventual conduct of State Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State on Saturday, October 30th 2021, minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare has called for calm among members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while insisting that only an all inclusive, transparent and fair congress can save the party in Oyo state from imminent crisis.
The minister, however, assured that the national leadership of the party will make the right decision in the matter at hand.
“The different parts of Oyo APC forged the unity required by all. This later day seeming hijack of the party by a few will not stand. The collective majority stood with the party. Those that took a different turn want to destabilize the party. They will not go far”.
“ What happened on saturday is a glaring anathema to the needed unity the party badly requires. Sincere and deliberate steps must be taken to salvage the unity in the party. The general elections in 2023 is fast approaching.”
Since the final list of Ward and Local Government congresses were reported to be doctored, tension has gripped the party.
It would be recalled that request for the legitimate list of the earlier congresses was not granted to the executives of Oyo State APC until a recent disclosure by the chairman of the party, Chief Akin Oke barely 12 hours to the State Congress.
