The Osun National Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward Congress on Monday said only candidates who collected nomination forms, passed through the screening process and participated in the congress were declared winners.

The Committee also reiterated that the exercise was carried out in line with the principles and guidelines of the party as enshrined in its Constitution and in accordance with the directive of the national leadership.

Briefing journalists on the outcome of the congress at the state party secretariat, Ogo-Oluwa, Osogbo, the  Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, who expressed satisfaction with the Wards Congresses described it as a huge success.

Elegbeleye debunked insinuations making the round that members of the Committee did not meet with stakeholders of the party before the exercise, saying those peddling such insinuations were on a self-serving mission.

He disclosed that the Committee met with stakeholders of the party in the sate, including three former deputy governors, serving members of the National Assembly, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, among other key stakeholders.

He noted that it would be hypocritical of any discerning mind and member of the party to say that those whom the Committee met with are not stakeholders of the APC in Osun.

The committee chairman said: “We came in on Friday and held a Stakeholders’ meeting with the leaders of the party who are critical stakeholders of the party. This stakeholders’ meeting had the Governor in attendance, with three former Deputy Governors, Speaker of State House of Assembly, members of the National Assembly among other leaders of the party.

“So, you cannot say such generality of the party’s leaders that we met are not representatives of the people. We actually met with those we all know as leaders of the party. They are indeed the leaders of the party.

“What we did on Saturday was to ensure that only those who got and filled nomination forms, passed through screening process participated in the Ward Congresses, and it is only this set of people that can be declared the winners of the Ward Congresses.

“We were given the mandate from the National Secretariat, so, there is no way we will declare those who didn’t collect nomination forms, who didn’t fill them and who didn’t pass through the screening process as winners.

“So, it is those who participated in the Congress who collected forms, filled forms, passed through screening exercise that we can say are eligible.

“I have the forms of each of the three senatorial districts with me and I am using this opportunity, on behalf of my colleagues in Congress Committee to declare those who were screened as elected representatives and new executive of each of the wards they represent.”
