APC drums up support for Osun election candidate

04 August 2014, 16:11

Osun - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has mandated all its elected members to converge in Osun State from Tuesday until Saturday's gubernatorial election as a show of support to incumbent governor, Rauf Aregbesola.

In a statement issued in Osogbo on Monday through its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said the directive also covered all political appointees in states under the control of the APC, especially Special Advisers and Commissioners.
Members of the party's national exco and the national elders' caucus are also expected in the state.
"APC said it perceives the forthcoming election as a celebration of democracy and a harvest time for the party, whose candidate has worked so hard to implement his mandate and make life more abundant for the people of the state," the party stated.

The opposition party also called on its members in Osun to be vigilant ahead of the poll, considering the alleged "myriad of desperate tactics the People's Democratic Party had perfected to win the poll at all costs."
