The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State said it viewed the decision of the Hon. Idowu Otetubi led-executive of the Unity Forum to dissolve into the parent-body, as significant, and its a prerequisite for genuine reconciliation in the state chapter.
Ondo APC is also elated over the voluntary and unconditional withdrawal of a case at the Federal High Court, Akure, instituted by the group, challenging the composition of the Engr. Ade Adetimehin-led State Executive.
A statement made available to journalists on Monday by the publicity secretary of the party in the state, Alex Kaleijaye, said the party-state chairman, Engr. Adetimehin, applauded the former chairman of the Unity Forum and members of his executive for placing the fortune of the party ahead of personal ego and interest.
He said the collapse of the Unity Forum structure into the party structure would further enhance the cohesion and chances of the party in any election in the state.
The Chairman said the collapse of the structure into the party translates into additional value, and would make the governorship task ahead much easier.
He described Otetubi as a highly experienced politician as well as a dogged political warrior, whose love for the development of Ondo State is exemplary.
The party chieftain assures of comprehensive integration into the main fold for Hon. Otetubi and his team adding, “There will be no discrimination of any type against returnees because we are one”.
He expressed that, “It is in the best interest of our party for all of us to work together at a critical period like this and work for the victory of APC at the governorship election”.
