2023: Accommodate All Interests, Lanlehin-led Reconciliation Committee Charges Ibadan City APC Stakeholders

In order to ensure the success of the Oyo state chapter of the APC in 2023, stakeholders in the party from the five local government areas in Ibadan City are to take into account all interests and all viewpoints.

Speakers at an interactive session conducted at the party’s secretariat in Oke-Ado, Ibadan, stated that this was the only way to ensure inclusivity, solidarity, and unity, which will undoubtedly result in victory in the upcoming elections.

Leaders, members, and aspirants from the local governments of Ibadan North, Ibadan Northeast, Ibadan Northwest, Ibadan Southeast, and Ibadan Southwest attended the session, which was called by the Senator Olufemi Lanlehin-led Oyo State APC Reconciliation Committee.

Some House of Assembly aspirants in attendance who spoke at length included Mogaji Wasiu Akere, Ibadan Southwest I, Hon. Adeniyi Adeoti, Ibadan Southwest II, Hon. Lukman Akanji from Ibadan Southeast II, Hon. Taiwo Hammed Eshinlokun, Ibadan North I, as well as Hon. Gbadebo Obisesan, Ibadan Northeast I.

The party was reminded of the need to uphold equity, justice, and fairness in its dealings by Alh. Kazeem Lawal (Duro’re), Ibadan Northeast Constituency II, and Hon. Femi Adelowo, Ibadan North Constituency II, who both aspired to represent their respective constituencies.

In order to show that the party is prepared for inclusive politics, Hon. Gbenga Elemide from Ibadan Southeast, Chief S.A. Adeleke from Ibadan Northwest, Alhaja Alimat Olajide, and Hon. Alade Yakub from Ibadan Northeast all emphasized the need for a comprehensive review of the party structure.

Also speaking, Alh. B.A.O. Oladeji, a leader from Ibadan North, urged participants to work diligently for the success of the party, charging the Reconciliation Committee to note that its assignment will always be ongoing and not one-off, necessitating the creation of a smaller committee possibly even to handle spin-offs.

According to the unique characteristics of each local government, the agreement at the session remained an enlargement of the party structure where possible and a complete renovation in others.

Akeeb Animashaun, Baba Salawu Olowo Adekile, Prince Gbade Lana, Hon. Rasaq Ekundayo, Hon. Kola Adigun, Madam Bunmi Adedeji, Hon. Kehinde Oloya, Alh. Azeez Asimolowo and Alh.
