Oyo APC Crisis: Elders Move To Reconcile Members

Court Nullifies APC Congresses In Anambra

The Oyo APC Elders’ Advisory Council is setting up reconciliation and harmonisation committees at the ward-local and state levels, in a bid to find lasting peace to the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State.

A communique signed jointly by the chairman and secretary of the council, Iyiola Oladokun and Isiaka Kolawole respectively, asked the two sides in the party to nominate members for the 132-man ward-local and 6-man state harmonisation committees.

They copied the chairman of the party, Isaac Omodewu in the resolution.

“Having recognised the need for genuine reconciliation and harmonisation of party executives at the ward, local and state levels, the Oyo State APC Elders Advisory Council led by His Excellency (Barrister) Iyiola Oladokun, hereby calls for nominations into 132-man Ward-Local and 6-man State Harmonisation Committees.

“Internal contestation, arguments and disagreements are normal in a political setting.

"A political party without divergent views is not a strong platform.

"However, it can only become a problem when we are not capable to forge an agreement after a disagreement.

“Hence, the move by the Oyo APC Elders Advisory Council to resolve all our internal issues to reposition the progressive family in the state, ahead of the forthcoming party’s primary elections and 2023 General elections.”

“Four notable and credible party members from each of the 33 LGAs would be nominated.

"This means two (2) nominees from each of the two sides.

“The 4-man harmonisation committee in each council area is to ensure genuine harmonisation of the ward and local executives

“For the state harmonisation committee, 6 notable and credible party members.

"This means three (3) nominees from each of the two sides.

"The 6-man harmonisation committee is to midwife harmonisation of state executives of the party.

“The committee shall also look into likely unresolved harmonisation issues, arising from the tasks given to the ward-local harmonisation committee.

“To this end, concerned stakeholders are requested to forward their nominees for membership of the harmonisation committees to the secretary of Oyo State APC Elders Advisory Council, Dr Isiaka Olayinka Kolawole on 08033115889 latest by 10:00 am on Tuesday, 12th April 2022, for immediate inauguration on the same day."

Meanwhile, the council has thanked members and leaders for their anticipated cooperation, towards ensuring the collaborative efforts of enthroning a united house for the sake of the party works.
