Adeolu Akande, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo, says national leadership of the party will resolve the lingering crisis in the state.
Akande, also the chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), said this a statement on Sunday evening in Ibadan.
Akande was among the stakeholders who kicked against the conduct of Saturday’s rescheduled state congress over the alleged falsified delegates’ list.
He said that the congresses held at the three levels in the state remained contentious and called for the resolute intervention of the party’s national leadership toward addressing the issue.
The NCC chairman added that the party leadership would not leave the lingering crisis in the state unresolved if truly it was committed to the party’s victory comes 2023.
“I acknowledge that there are unresolved issues with the ward, local government, and state levels of the party’s congresses. I wish to commend the intervention of the national leadership of the party so far in resolving the lingering crisis,” stated Akande. “I have no doubt that the commitment of the national leadership to the victory of APC in the 2023 elections will make them evolve a formula to resolve the crisis in Oyo state.”
The NCC chief urged party members to remain calm over the crisis resulting from the conduct of the party’s congresses.
“I call on members of the party to remain calm and be law-abiding, knowing that as members of the same party, we shall soon be working together to return the party to the fold of progressive states comes 2023,” he said.
