OYEDOKUN/BABAYEMI: Osun APC Grateful To Stakeholders Over Peaceful Defection Programme.. ...Appreciates Tinubu, Oyetola For Members' Tertiary Institutions' Board Appointments

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended all the stakeholders of the party for their individual and collective contributions towards the grand defection programme of Alhaji Shuaib Oyedokun, former Deputy National Chairman  of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  and member, PDP's Board of Trustees; Prince Dotun Babayemi, former governorship aspirant of the PDP and their numerous supporters in thousands on Friday, in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

The Osun State chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, on Sunday, stated that he was grateful to God Almighty for making the defection event hitch-free without any record of untoward incident before, during and after it.

Lawal explained that he would make the leader of the APC in the state, former Governor Gboyega Oyetola now Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, a point of contact to appreciate all the other leaders of the party for their financial and moral supports for the organization of the event.

The state APC chairman also used Engr Sola Akinwumi, the chairman of Igbimo Agba in the state APC, as a point of contact to appreciate the other members of the group for the unalloyed qualitative support given to the execution of the event.

He said he was particularly appreciative of the selfless and dedicated services rendered by the Organizing Committee of the event led by Alhaji Debo Badru, the Maiyegun of Iwoland, which marvelously realized the target of the committee within a very short time.

Lawal also extended his appreciation to the state executive officers of the party, the leaders of the party at all  levels across the state and all the members of the party who diligently identified with the programme in order to make it a huge success.

He explained further that his words of appreciation would not be complete if he fails to recognize the contributions of both statutory and unofficial security services who also contributed their quota to the success of the programme.

Lawal also commended the PDP decampees for their orderly manner and good conduct, reminding them that there would always be equal opportunity for them and the members of the party they met on the ground.

He  charged them to start attending the APC political meetings in their units, wards, local governments as it is only regular meetings that could translate to a serious political involvement of members of any particular party.

Lawal used the medium to appreciate President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji Oyetola for deeming it fit to appoint members and supporters of the APC of Osun State extraction as chairmen and members of governing councils of some Federal Government-owned tertiary institutions.

In the state APC chairman's words: "The board appointments rolled out by  President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for some of  our people few hours after the defection of some PDP members into the APC is a confirmation to them that their destiny is bright in the party that controls the centre".
