The former governor in the state of Osun, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has debunked rumour making round that he is planning to defect to another party.
The former governor, who reiterated his commitment to All Progressives Congress (APC), called for unity among the party faithful and urged them to disregard insinuations that he was leaving the party.
In a statement issued by a former Secretary to the Osun State Government under Oyinlola administration, Kazeem Adio, says rumours about some leaders leaving the party for whatever reasons are being circulated by some faceless elements in the polity who should be ignored.
The statement read in part: “Prince Oyinlola is a major stakeholder in the party (APC); remember he was the secretary of the New PDP, a key component of the APC at the formative stage, he is also a member of the party’s Board of Trustees. He not only remains in the party but has also been silently working very hard to ensure its growth, stability and unity in the face of recent challenges,” the statement read.
“As a leader in Osun State who is at home with all segments of the society, Prince Oyinlola’s major concern at the moment is how to strengthen the party, make it get closer to the people and continue to make their welfare a priority. The people of Osun State can get their interest better served by remaining with the APC.”
Oyinlola further urged citizens across the country to join hands in seeking divine favour for the governments at all levels.
