Following the dissolution of Ogun state executive by the National Working Committee (NWC) of All Progressives Congress (APC), a Caretaker Committee has been put in place. This was made known by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu,
The newly constituted committee has Yemi Sanusi, as Chairman; Ayobami Olubori, Secretary, and Tunde Oladunjoye, Publicity Secretary of the committee.
The constitution of the committee was necessitated by the dissolution of the state’s executive of the party. In a similar manner a committee has been set up in Imo state to steer the ship of the party after the dissolution of its own executive.
It would be recalled that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party announced the dissolution of the executives of Ogun and Imo States over what its described as anti party activities of Governors Senator Ibikunl Amosun of Ogun state and Rochas Okorocha of Osun state.
Governor Amosun is said to be disgruntled by the the way the party’s primaries was conducted in the state and what he described as manipulation of the National Working Committee. For I’m state Governor Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, the National Working Committee of the party, led by Comrade Adams Oshiomole has conspired with some elements within the party to deny his son-in-law who is his preferred candidate for the governorship ticket, and so he had to seek another platform.
Their seemingly unresolvable grievances have made Amosun’s lieutenants to leave the ruling party for African Peoples Party (APM) and Okorocha’s son-in-law and other followers to other party that meet their demand and offer them the opportunity of realising their desires.
Although the duo remain in APC, but have openly supported the decisions of their followers and vowed to cast their votes for their preferred governorship candidates and work against the candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC) in their respective states in the 2019 elections. They however pledged their loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and promised to give him their votes in the presidential election.
