A former governor of Oyo State and gvernorship aspirant in the 2019 general elections, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala has disclosed that the crisis rocking the state chapter of The All Progressives Congress, APC, will be laid to rest in a matter of weeks as talks have reached an advanced stage towards achieving that.
Alao-Akala made this disclosure while speaking with newsmen shortly after commissioning the new digital studio of Parrot FM Ogbomoso as part of activities marking the fifth year anniversary of the private radio station on Saturday.
According to him, the leadership of the party is doing everything within its powers to ensure peace and stability return to the state chapter of the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Hear him: “We cannot afford to remain divided with the elections around the corner. I have met with the governor and members of the Unity Forum at various times and I can assure you in a matter of weeks things will be sorted out.
“It is a family affair and we will have to accommodate each other.
“If we continue to talk about ratification or harmonization we won’t get the desired result. We have to accommodate ourselves within the family.
“It is normal to have children of the same parent disagree but life is about give and take. In a matter of days we will come to a round table and have a family meeting.
“We will shift for ourselves and create room to accommodate various interests.
“Don’t forget this is politics and the game is for the real politicians.
“We know ourselves and I, as an active player in the game of Politics, understand the interest at play.
“Government is ephemeral it comes and go, it has a time frame but the Party is constant.
“The party is a factor that cannot be wished away that is why we must do everything to ensure the stability of the party structure,” he added.
