Ajimobi, Alao-Akala, others meet to resolve Oyo APC crisis
The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, a former governor of the state, Adebayo Alao-Akala, current deputy governor, Moses Alake, and chairman of the All Progressives Congress in the state, Akin Oke, on Monday, met at the party secretariat in Ibadan with their focus being on how to resolve the crisis that the struggle for the control of the party birthed after the various congresses held in the state.
Beaming with confidence, the governor said that the crisis within the ruling party in the state would soon be a thing of the past with the splinter groups said to be closing ranks with the mainstream.
The meeting, which lasted over three hours, was also attended by the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Olagunju Ojo; and a former deputy governor, Iyiola Oladokun.
Also at the meeting were members of the House of Representatives, Hakeem Adeyemi, Saheed Fijabi, Dada Awoleye, Gbenga Ayoade and Segun Odebunmi.
The governor said that the meeting was called to evaluate the level of success recorded so far in reconciling the aggrieved members, who had earlier formed splinter groups, back to the party’s mainstream.
He expressed delight in what he called the high level of progress in the reconciliation move, adding that 75 per cent of those that left the party had so far been brought back into its fold.
