APC adopted consensus for ward congress in Oyo

16 April 2014, 18:08

Ibadan - Akin Oke, the Interim Chairman of  the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, on Wednesday said consensus arrangement was used in the conduct of the  last ward congress of the party.

Oke said that the party was fair  to all the interest groups.

"Inspite of the fact that we adopted consensus as part of the arrangement for the congress, APC conducted  it fairly.

"Consensus arrangement was part of the arrangement for the ward congress, yet all interest groups were given fair representation,” he said.

Members of the defunct CPC, one of the parties that merged to form  APC, had alleged state-wide marginalisation  under the guise of consensus arrangement.

Oke, who said that the ward congress was democratically conducted, hinged the crisis on the division among members of the defunct CPC.

The APC  boss said that the division among members of the group prevented the group from filling the slots  given to them.

It would be recalled that Ibadan North Local Government produced two chairmen during the ward congress.
