The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Osun has affirmed that Prince Adegboyega Famoodun remains the state Chairman of the party, adding that ‘there is no crack in the party and no petition was written to remove the state Chairman of the APC from office’.
The Osun APC legal adviser , Chief (Barr) Adegoke Ogunsola made this known on Thursday, at the State Secretariat of the party, during a press conference organized by the State Executive Council Members of the party.
Ogunsola said that ‘there is unity in Osun APC and there is no faction, noting that some people suspected to be disgruntled members of the main opposition, PDP, are misleading the public with lies, misinformation and falsehood to believe that Osun APC is factionalized and not united’.
According to him, “Osun APC always operates within the ambit of the party’s constitution, other relevant laws and directives from the National Headquarters of the party.
“We are hereby informing the public that the news that Osun APC is factionalized into both Gov. Gboyega Oyetola’s camp and Rauf Aregbesola’s camp, is an utter falsehood and misinformation from the pit of hell and those wishing disintegration of Osun APC are members of the main opposition”.
The party said: ‘it is a sham that the former governor, Ogbeni Aregbesola is sponsoring the Secretary of of the party, Alhaji Razaq Salinsile against the State Chairman, Prince Adegboyega Famodun, saying the duo have cordial relationship, and we are endowed with resourceful elders such as Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Sola Akinwumi and many others who will intervene and settle any dispute if there is any”.
‘Osun APC is ready for Congresses to hold whenever it pleases the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party’.
The party Executive Committee members however said that it was because of Osun gubernatorial election that was not far from the time of Congresses which made the NEC to engage in the postponement of the Congresses, ‘and there is nothing the party at the state level will do without the knowledge of the National Headquarters of the party’.
