The All Progressives Congress (APC), Osun State chapter conducted its Local Government Congress election on Saturday, September 4, 2021 with the National Committee assigned to conduct the election announcing that the congress election was free, fair and credible in all the 30 LGs and one Area office.
The leader of the National Committee on Local Government Congress, Hon Gbena Elegbeleye from Abuja announced all the 30 LGs and Area office where the election were conducted under consessus agreement by the party.
In the Press Conference attended by SOJ WORLDWIDE, http://www.sojwprldnews.com Mr Elegbeleye declared there was no any other Congress in the state apart from the one his members of committee, who are seven in number supervised.
“When told that there was an ongoing radio program on a popular Radio station in the state capital, Rave FM (91.7FM) where two factions of the party are laying claim to victory, Elegbeleye said, ” I am not aware there was any congress, the National Secretariat sent only seven of us.”
“All of us are not members of thesame family, we are not from thesame state, so we cannot agree together to commit crime. What we are to do is to come to this Secretariat not Rave FM.”
We are to address Press Conference, we are to collate results, if you are in APC and you belong to any faction you cannot be against your Secretariat. So, this is APC Secretariat and we are members of APC, if you want to have your election you know there is a Committee set up by the Party Secretariat, notify them that you are not in agreement with the others. The party does not recognize you. The party only sent us to Osun State.”
“We don’t know any other place where there was Congress other than the party designated areas given to us and we went through it…we don’t know any other place where there was any other congress, myself and other members (He introduced all the members of the committee).”
When asked why do they go for consessus when some are clamouring for election, Elegbeleye has this to say,
“Nobody gave us any notification of any other Congress. We are not from Osun State we were not told of any other congress,. There is nothing like that.”
The Osun APC Caretaker Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun said he would not like the Press to equate the strength of a fully registered party with a light weight of a pressure group.
Famodun likened The Osun Progressives (TOP) to a Judas among the 12 Disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, that in spite of Judas in their midst, Jesus Christ still succeeded.
