The All Progressives Congress (APC) in  Oyo State  on Tuesday in Ibadan  inaugurated its executives across the 351 wards and 33 local government areas  in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a legal practitioner, Mr Segun Abayomi,  conducted the oath of office for the officials at the  party secretariat in Ibadan.

NAN also reports that the  inaugurated executives emerged from the last ward and local government congresses of the party across the state.

Hon. Lekan Adeyemo, the state’s  Deputy Chairman of the party, congratulated the newly inaugurated executives and urged them to commence reconciliation of  aggrieved members immediately.

“Our party’s  constitution says it is mandatory for elected party executives to be sworn-in.

“ All our new party executives in the state have been sworn-in and today we are conducting yours too,” he said.

Adeyemo stated that the state executive had after their inauguration commenced reconciliation of aggrieved party members, adding that the process was on-going.

He urged the newly inaugurated executives in the wards and local governments to also replicate this  within the various jurisdictions.

The State Secretary of the party, Mr Mojeed Olaoya, urged the newly inaugurated executives to ensure that the aggrieved members were reconciled at their various wards and local governments.

Olaoya stated that the peaceful conduct of the congress had  shown that the party was the most organised, adding  that the party would ensure aggrieved members were reconciled.

NAN recalls that the recently conducted congresses of the party in the state had witnessed a crisis, with a faction threatening to quit the party.

A faction of the party known as Unity Forum had recently threatened to quit the party, alleging  marginalisation and highhandedness by  Gov. Abiola Ajimobi. (NAN)
