LGA congress: Desist from violence and anti-party activities, APC warns members
The All Progressives Congress (APC) committee chairman for LGA congresses in Osun, Gbenga Elegbeleye has asked members to be peaceful as the party conducts its congresses.
The APC LGA congress is scheduled to hold today across the country.
Elegbeleye further admonished the contestants to shun anti-party activities.
Speaking at the APC secretariat in Osogbo, Elegbeleye said elections should not be seen as a do-or-die affair.
He called for the support of ward leaders and enjoined them to assist in supervising and achieving peaceful elections.
According to him, the results of the congress are expected to come out without any delay.
He urged party faithful to uphold the principles of love and goodwill.
Governor of Osun state, Adegboyega Oyetola also urged party members seeking elections into various positions at the LG level not to see it as “a battlefield affair”.
“There are several posts in the party which can still be occupied and not a do-or-die affair,” he said.
“What is important is to remain a loyal party member for the benefit of everyone and growth of the party.”
In a goodwill message, Foluke Ete, former speaker of the house of representatives, advised party members to visit their various constituencies to ratify the elections.
Ete said that the party was ready to give its best in ensuring peaceful elections, devoid of violence.
“Osun has always been in an envious position when it comes to party affairs, thereby laying a good foundation for other states to emulate,” she said.
