A group in the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Osun State, The Osun Progressives (TOP) has called on members of the party to turn out in large numbers on Saturday, for the scheduled ward Congress.
The Chairman of the group, Reverend Adelowo Adebiyi said this on Friday while addressing members of TOP who attended the weekly meeting of the caucus at the Oranmiyan House, Osogbo.
Adebiyi noted that it was a duty they owed to genuine progressive ideals and platform to ensure that men with character, capacity, and compassion are elected to steer the affairs of the party aright.
According to him, it was the choice of men with the right presence of mind with a strong political will that could recreate and strengthen APC for the future greatness of winning elections without stress.
He urged all members of APC to arrive at their ward collation centres early on Saturday to cast their votes for all the already carefully chosen candidates of the TOP Caucus in all wards.
Adebiyi, who expressed the need for members of TOP Caucus to be of exemplary character urged them to shun actions that could cause disruption of the election proceedings but also urged them to resist any other group or caucus from doing same.
The pioneer chairman of Osun APC also urged them to keenly follow through the directives and procedures of the National Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning committee on the Congress as some other caucuses such as IleriOluwa have clearly been circumventing them.
He expressed hope for the triumph of truth as represented by the TOP with the massive election of it’s members on Saturday so that the APC can serve its purpose as election-winning platform.
