There’s Crisis In Our Party — APC Group Fires Back At Akin Oke


A group within the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, Way Forward Group has described as untrue a claim by the Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Akin Oke that there is no crisis within the party.

The group stated this in a letter to the Acting National Chairman of the Extra ordinary convention Planning committee of the party, Governor Mai Mala Buni.

The letter was signed by the convener of the group, Eng. Dipo Fawole, secretary, Hon Kazeem Adebayonle Sanni and the trio of Chief Femi Olaore​​, Hon. Jide Adewale, Hon. Kunle Olatunji, Hon. Adeniyi Adeoti​ and Hon. Mutiu Adewusi​.

The letter read in part, “We members of Way Forward Group of APC Oyo State are using this medium to clarify a few issues on the recent statements and press release from the office of the Chairman of Oyo State APC.

“The claim and proclamation by Chief Akin Oke led Executive that all is well with Oyo APC and that there is no division within the party is untrue We state without mincing words that this pronouncement is not a true reflection of the position alluded to by majority of party faithful who have expected the pursuit of permanent peace after the demise of Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the former Governor of Oyo State.

“It is rather unfortunate and highly disappointing that Pa Akin Oke’s and his cabal within the state EXCO would author and release such falsehood that will come to the attention of the APEX body to compound further, the already tense situation within the state wing of the party, for whatever reasons and indecorous purposes intended.

“We are constrained to inform our National caretaker committee that Pa Akin Oke, the heavily compromised Chairman of the party in Oyo state, has for a long time now been operating the party exclusively with his cabal of frustrated and panicky fellows within the state EXCO, who are now pariahs, afraid of going into political oblivion after the demise of Senator Abiola Ajimobi whom they led astray severally while alive, thus causing untold excruciating painful castigations and aspersions on the late leader and former Governor before his demise, which has not abated even after his untimely exit.”

The group stressed further that it is becoming clearer now that Chief Akin Oke led Executive inflicted most of the pains of the losses at the 2019 elections on the party through their ill advice and selfish disposition, deliberately positioning and programming Senator Abiola Ajimobi towards failure.

They also noted that a true reconciliation and repositioning of the party towards the 2023 elections requires harmonious and peaceful resolutions of issues, realignment, total overhaul and restructuring of the APC Oyo State.

They then called for the immediate adoption of the Otunba Alao Akala led Oyo APC Reconciliation Committee formed by Late Senator Abiola Ajimobi and officially inaugurated by the Pa Akin Oke led Exco and now expanded by HE Alao Akala to provide the roadmap for true and genuine reconciliation and repositioning of the party against the political misfortune prone initiatives pursued by Chief Akin Oke and his embattled group.

“Finally, we unequivocally demand a retraction by the Chief Akin Oke led executive of their infamous release with apologies for those unfortunate and divisive statements contained therein, within 24hrs of this publication otherwise, we may issue further directives on their continued relevance in Oyo state APC family,” the group added.
