The group commended the president for addressing the concerns of APC leaders in Oyo State by including more indigenes of the state in the councils and boards of tertiary institutions.

However, the group criticised the recent list of appointments, noting the complete absence of representatives from the Ibarapa zone in spite of numerous qualified candidates from the area.

It said that no representative of Ibarapa zone was included in the 24-member list sent to Abuja for these appointments in spite of numerous qualified persons in the area.

Additionally, the group called for a more inclusive decision-making process in the party to ensure all geopolitical zones in the state are represented adequately.
