As a way out of the Crisis rocking the African Democratic Congress, ADC, a member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Hafeez Adeleke, has declared that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is the only solution.
According to Adeleke, who represents Iseyin/Itesiwaju state constituency, all the leaders of the party need to work together in their bid to capture the state in the 2019 general elections.”
Narrating how they met Obasanjo in his Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, country home, Adeleke said: “All of us met him in Abeokuta and we finalised that we are moving from the ruling APC to the ADC, he should prevail because he is our father. Ladoja was invited to the join the party, though the reconciliation is ongoing, there is a need for us to work to send APC away in 2019.
“We should meet him as a matter of urgency, meet Obasanjo again on how to resolve the crisis”.
Adeleke, who assured that Obasanjo’s intervention would put an end to the crisis, within the party, said he was surprised that Ladoja who was invited to join the party about three weeks ago has hijacked the party from members of the Unity Forum.
He said, “we members of the Unity Forum, a breakaway faction within the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, joined the ADC. Former governor Rashidi Ladoja and others were invited to join. But, about three or four days ago, we noticed that some members of Ladoja faction went ahead to conduct the state congress without the Unity Forum. We condemned the activity of the Ladoja faction. And we have called the NEC to intervene, and the reconciliation is ongoing.
“The reconciliation is ongoing. I was at the meeting, we issued a seventy-two hour ultimatum to the so-called chairman to cancel the congresses. And he promised that he will get back to us.
“But, we are expecting the intervention of former President Olusegun Obasanjo to rescue the party in Oyo state. We want Obasanjo, who is our father, to intervene. Though, the reconciliation is ongoing, we are expecting Obasanjo to intervene because he is the guide of the party. I believed if he intervene the problem will be solved.”
