Go Back To Your Wards And Reconcile With Your Leaders First, Ogun APC Tells Akinlade, Others

Heritage Odih, 
Abeokuta

The Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised the governorship candidate of the Allied People's Movement (APM) in the March 9, 2019, gubernatorial election in the state, Hon. Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade, and all members of the APM wishing to return to APC fold to go back to their various wards and first reconcile with their leaders.

The Party also enjoined Akinlade and his followers to return to the wards level and follow the laid down procedure.
The Publicity Secretary of the Ogun APC Caretaker Committee, Tunde Oladunjoye, in a statement made available to The Daily Crucible  on Tuesday, also advised whoever among them that has cases in courts against APC, should withdraw same immediately as a demonstration of sincerity of repentance.
Oladunjoye assured that the Party would welcome all APM people back provided that they followed the due process of joining or returning to APC in "accordance with the party’s constitution and established procedures."
He stated: "The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has received news of the return of the entire members of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in Ogun State, its governorship candidate in the last election and the collapse of all its structures into to our great party, the APC.

"To say the least, APC is a party of the  progressives and provides room for all. The party, at any point in time, is therefore ready to receive repentant members back into the fold. 

"However, while we see the announced  return of the APM members into our party as a welcome development, we are quick to add there is a process of joining or returning to our party in accordance with the party’s constitution and established procedures. We therefore urge them to return to their various wards for registration and realignment. 

"Also, apart from going back to their various wards to re-enroll and reconcile with their people and leaders, it is also important for them to abide by the prevailing peace and decorum in Ogun APC and work under the Caretaker Executive formed by the National Working Committee of our party under the leadership of Chief Yemi Sanusi.

"We urge all  those who have cases against the party in courts to withdraw same without further delay. Only this will demonstrate their loyalty and sincerity. 

"We wish to quote from the statement of the National Working Committee of the APC read by the National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Monday, December 16 2019 while announcing pardon for some suspended members.

 “We hope the concerned party members will seize this opportunity to fully reconcile themselves with their ward, local government, and state party structures, key into the party activities, and continue to make their own contributions to the growth and stability of the party. 

"We urge them to also take steps to reconcile with groups and individuals that are important to ensuring a lasting solution to any conflict that may exist in their respective states.”

He, however, commended the steadfastness of APC  members in the state who stood by the party  through thick and thin,  promising that their interests would  be adequately taken care of.
