Amidst Unresolved Crisis In Oyo APC, Party Appoints Ajimobi, 3 Others To Resolve Edo Crisis

While the crisis within the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yet to be resolved, the National Working Committee of the party, has appointed former governor Abiola Ajimobi, who many point accusing fingers to, as member of a committee set up to resolve the crisis with the Edo State chapter of the party.
Before last year’s party congress in Oyo State, which led many party members, especially loyalists of late former governor Lamidi Adesina out of the party, Oyo APC had been badly fractured due to the imposition of candidates during the council election organized by the administration of former governor Abiola Ajimobi.
The national leadership of the party, according to the aggrieved party members, left the matter unattended to before, during and after the last general elections. “Even the one generated at the October 1, 2018, governorship primaries of the party is yet to be resolved,” one of the party leaders from Oyo South told OYOINSIGHT.COM, adding that “It was not that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had a structure to defeat us. They took advantage of our fractured house. And we paid for it. The man at the centre of it was also defeated, even in his local government. I remember we wrote series of protest letter to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the National leadership of the party to address the issue but nothing was done. We lost state and National Assembly members to the opposition.”
Now the party has more than 10 factions. The SENACO (Senator Abiola Ajimobi Campaign Organisation) are now even divided into two. The Lamist group, the aspirants’ forum, the reformers, the Amosun group, the Tinubu/Aregbesola, The Shittu group, the Adelabu group and many others. All of them are holding separate meetings. A source told this newspaper that the Oyo APC caucus in the  National Assembly are also not happy with former governor Ajimobi.
Rather than look into the crisis, the National Working Committee, NWC, announced the appointment of Ajimobi into the committee to wade into the crisis rocking the Edo State chapter of the party.
It would be recalled that the party national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki, have been at loggerheads, a situation that has split the Edo party leaders and members.
Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje will head the party’s five-member fact-finding committee to the state with members including Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari; former governor of Borno State and serving senator, Kashim Shettima and Honourable Ahmed Wadada (Secretary).
The Committee is expected to meet with all disputing interests and present its findings to the party, APC spokesman, Lanre Issa Onilu, said in a statement.
