A group within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state has called for the dissolution of the party excos in the state.
The group, known as Reformers, in a statement on Monday said the party needed a more popular and proactive executives to run the party affairs.
The group’s Secretary, Sulaimon Ramon, who issued the statement, condemned proposition by the party chairmen at the LG level to make the party’s governorship candidate in the just concluded election, Mr Adebayo Adelabu the state party leader as well as nominated state candidate for ministerial slot.
The statement reads in parts, “We lost the election to imposition of candidates, lack of internal democracy, internal wrangling, high handedness by the governor and the incompetence of the party executive under Chief Akin Oke.
“What Oyo state APC needs now is a college of tested and patriotic party leaders under the leadership of a tested leader with credibility, sound knowledge of politics, grassroots mobilization, kindness and an army of loyal supporters. It is far from being a responsibility of a political greenhorn like Adelabu.”
It advised the chairmen to understand that the party is bigger than individual greed and interest of each and every one of them, noting that “this was the way they hailed and shouted Sheu until Ajimobi led us to the present dungeon.”
