Ward Congress: APC group urges Buni’s c’mtt to stop Osun’s “dangerous trend.”


The dust has yet to settle on the All Progressives Congress (APCtumultuous )’s Ward Congress in the state of Osun.

The Progressive Coalition Against Injustice (PCAI), a group within the party, called on Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), to avert a dangerous and self-destructive trend within the party, on Friday.

According to the group, the Osun APC has built a winning and stable legacy that has brought exceptional development and politics to the people for over ten years.

The Progressive APC group said in a statement signed by its Coordinator, Mr Jide Alabi, that it was aware that the recent ward congress in Osun would not be fair and transparent because of the Chairman of the Congress Committee, Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, who added that the latter’s ambition and relationship would prevent him from doing the right thing expected of an umpire.

The group claimed that Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, the Chairman of the Congress Committee, tainted the process.

The group questioned why Governor Adegboyega Oyetola was so friendly to politicians, especially those from the opposition PDP in the ruling party, and said the current situation requires immediate attention from national leaders.

“Our great party’s leadership is urged to take a quick look at the situation in order to avoid a dangerous and self-destructive trend. As a result, our regional and national leaders have been warned to halt this trend before it becomes gravely irreversible for the state and country.”

“We knew there was no way the APC Ward Congresses Committee in Osun, headed by Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, could have been fair from the time he was appointed,” the statement reads. This is because we have it on good authority that Senator Iyiola Omisore, who has previously hijacked the PDP and SDP, nominated Elegbeleye.

“While leaders from far and wide urged Elegbeleye to at least be fair and recognize all stakeholders in the Ward Congress consensus arrangements, he turned a deaf ear to serve his masters, claiming that he screened over 8000 aspirants in just three hours.

“Why is Oyetola collaborating with the worst elements of our political climate to promote a divisive and toxic agenda?

“Governor Oyetola is doing everything he can to sabotage the legacy by dividing the party and, worst of all, bringing criminal PDP elements to the forefront of our party.

“This has serious implications for our party’s electoral prospects in the coming elections. Governor Oyetola is disenfranchising the party’s grassroots, denying them access to the party’s Direct Primaries and corrupting our people with PDP criminals.”
