Oyo APC 33 LG Chairmen pay solidarity visit to Adelabu
APC Local Government Chairmen in Oyo State on Tuesday, paid a courtesy visit to Bayo Adelabu, the Oyo State governorship candidate in the last election.
The party leaders paid the visit at the Bayo Adelabu Foundation Hall, where they shed light on how to foster unity within the party structure.
The Chairman of Lagelu local government, Mr Raimi Zaria, while speaking, appreciated the efforts of the party during the electioneering campaign.
He likened his wide acceptance to that of the great Chief MKO Abiola who, unfortunately, was unable to see through the tough times.
He then pleaded with Adelabu to continue his good works in uniting the party. He went a step further to solicit on behalf of his colleagues, for Bayo Adelabu’s appointment as a Minister of Finance in the next dispensation of the APC government.
The Ibadan SouthWest LG Chairman, Mr Aderemi Oni, also highlighted the need for crises management and proper handling of rancour within the party.
He admonished Adelabu, who he said is now a leader in the party, to surround himself with people who are politically savvy and who are in tunes with intrigues in politics.
In his response, Adelabu thanked them for their kind gestures to his office after elections. He said it was in his plan to invite the leaders for a meeting at the best appropriate time.
He thanked them also for having stayed with him since the party primaries into the general election, though the results did not go as expected.
