Ogun APC rejects Osoba’s return to party

07 April 2016, 13:06

Abeokuta - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has rejected the return of the former governor of the state, Olusegun Osoba back to the party.

The party said it was not aware of Osoba’s return to the APC.

Osoba had on Sunday after a reconciliation meeting between him and some national leaders of the party said he was back in the party for good.

In attendance at the meeting included the National Leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi; Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode who was represented by his deputy, Oluranti Adebule and former Governor of Ekiti State, Niyi Adebayo.

Others are former interim National Chairman of APC,  Bisi Akande; APC National Vice Chairman, South West, Pius Akinyelure and Senator Gbenga Obadara and ex – Deputy Governor, Segun Adesegun.

But Governor Ibikunle Amosun, his Deputy, Yetunde Onanuga and leaders of the party in Ogun State were visibly absent and no explanation given for their absence.

A top party member in the state, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was laughable to read about Osoba’s alleged return to the APC, when a single member of the party from the state was not present at such a party.

He said the idea of determining the fate of a people at the local level by those at the top would not work in Osoba's case.

He said the party may be forced to issue a disclaimer if Osoba continues to parade himself as a member of the party in the state.
