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.
