 The Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that the recently conducted ward congresses of the party were duly held with full compliance with the constitution of the party 

A group led by Hon. Kunle Adesina had alleged that the congresses were improperly conducted, specifically stating that party members, who were not in the good books of the state Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, were denied participation in the exercise. 

However, the party, in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Sola Lawal maintained that every bonafide member of the party, who was available at the venues of the congresses across the state, participated and voted.

“A five-man Congress Committee, headed by Alhaji Bashir Machina, was sent to Ogun State by the national organ of the party, as was the case in all the 36 states in the country, to conduct the congress. The group did its job and turned in its report to the national secretariat.

“Subsequently, the Congress Appeal Panel also came, spent four days without a single petition filed with it. If anyone now suddenly woke up to cry marginalisation, it would be a mere after thought.

Any member across the state, who claimed not to be aware of the congress, could not and should not lay claim to the membership of our great party, APC, since mobilisation was done through the media nationally, a process which the state chapter of the party complemented by embarking on media announcement throughout the state some days before the congress," it added.    

The party debunked insinuation of factionalisation within its rank, stating that, division, if ever there was one, ended with the 2015 election.

“Nigerians will recall that some months to the 2015 election, a group of some supposedly loyal and founding members of the party factionalised the party, publicly renounced its membership of the party, went ahead to join the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and worked vigorously against our party, APC, in all elections; House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate, Governorship and the Presidential.

“We hope the same set of people and their co travelers are not desperate to recreate what they did in 2015, as we move towards 2019. As democrats, the doors of our party in Ogun State remain wide open to all, as long as they operate within the ambit of the party’s constitution, rules and regulation,” APC said.
