Ex-Ondo Speaker, APC Aspirants Threaten to Dump Party, Over Shadow Primaries

By Temitope Adedeji, Akure
The love that exist in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, is being threatened, as many of her members, who were cheated and disenfranchised during the last primaries have vowed to dump the party in earnest.
However, a coalition of Aggrieved All Progressives Congress (APC) Aspirants in Ondo on Thursday met in Akure, the state capital on the latest political development in the state.
They discussed on how they were ‘unjustly’ disenfranchised from participating in the National/State Assemblies primaries purportedly conducted last Friday.
A communique issued after the meeting jointly signed by its chairman, who is a former Speaker of the house, Kenneth Olawale and group’s Secretary, Kabiru Hassan urged their supporters to remain calm, stressing that efforts were being made within the ambit of the law to get justice on the matter.
The group noted that the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to reject the list of candidates allegedly concocted by the leadership of the party in the state was applauded by over 60 percent of the Aspirants in attendance at the meeting.
Also, some members of the APC loyal to a Senatorial Aspirant, Prince Adeyemi Foluso said they were disappointed over the outcome of the primaries.
At a rally in Ikare-Akoko, headquarters of Akoko Northeast, the spokesman of Adeyemi Foluso Campaign Organisation, Told Olowo-Okere said they would influence their principal to pull-out of the ruling party because of its shortcomings on the shadow election.
According to him, they would seek other platform with genuine internal democracy to realise their goals.
But, Foluso urged his supporters to remain calm, stressing his decision on the issue would come after the meeting with the national leadership of the APC.
