    By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo
    The All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus in Osun State, The Osun Progressives (TOP) held a parallel State Congress on Saturday where new leadership emerged.
    In the parallel State Congress, the immediate past Secretary of the party, Hon Rasaq Salinsile, was elected as the new APC Chairman while former Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Adelani Baderinwa, was elected State Secretary.
    At the venue of the congress which was held at the Ladsol, Ogo-Oluwa area, Osogbo, there was the presence of the men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
    In his acceptance speech, the newly elected chairman promised to redirect and revive the party.
    He said: “Dear APC members, with my election as the chairman of APC in the state, it is my belief that we have all taken a promising and informed decision to redirect the party affairs and revive the progressive tendencies which have been bastardised by the opportunists.
    “The current state of the APC in Osun is a reflection of poor management, which we shall begin to correct with the mandate given to me henceforth.
    “I shall work towards the actualisation of a prosperous APC and take the party to an enviable height. We have made sacrifices for this party and we will not allow it to sink or collapse.
    “We will survive this current crisis, intimidation, threat and oppression by the opportunists. We have been strong, but I still want to urge us to be stronger in few months to come. Our victory is near.
    “I sincerely appreciate our leader, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and other leaders of the party. I commend all members of the APC in general for counting me worthy of leading the party. By the grace of God, I will not disappoint you.”
    The congress was initially disrupted by hoodlums but were repelled by the NSCDC officers who engaged the thugs in gun battle.
    However, two members of the APC were shot by the hoodlums.
