There was a mild drama at the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osun State chapter, Osogbo, on Tuesday, when the meeting of the party’s caucus in the South West was disrupted by protest from members of the APC in Ekiti State.
The protesters, who stormed the APC secretariat located at Ogo Oluwa area of Osogbo, on the stretch of Gbongan-Ibadan expressway, were demanding that the slot of the National Deputy Chairman, South-West, to be zoned to Ekiti State.
The South West leadership of the party were holding a closed-door meeting in Osogbo to fill the vacant seats in the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party from the region.
The position of National Deputy Chairman (South-West) of the APC occupied by Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo became vacant as a result of his appointment as Minister of Trade and Investment by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Chanting solidarity songs, the protesters displayed placards with various inscriptions such as “No more Ajele politics”, “Fair is fair don’t cheat us”, “Don’t take us as fools”, “Beware of those things that can tear us apart”, “Ekiti APC is not second class Ekiti”, “Party constitution is superior to personal sentiments”, “It is deputy chairman or nothing”, among others.
