The All progressives Congress (APC) in Osun state has declared that there is no crack in the party as being rumored around the State.
The party affirmed that Prince Adegboyega Famoodun remains the state Chairman and that no petition was written to remove him from office.
Speaking at the State Secretariat of the party in Osogbo on Thursday, the party’s legal adviser, Chief (Barr) Adegoke Ogunsola stressed that ‘there is unity in Osun APC and that there is no faction.
Ogunsola claimed that some people suspected to be disgruntled members of the main opposition, PDP is misleading the public with lies, misinformation and falsehood to believe that the party in the state is factionalized and not united.
According to him, “Osun APC always operates within the ambit of the party’s constitution, other relevant laws and directives from the National Headquarters of the party.
“We are hereby informing the public that the news that Osun APC is factionalized into both Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s camp and Rauf Aregbesola’s camp, is an utter falsehood and misinformation from the pit of hell and those wishing disintegration of Osun APC are members of the main opposition”.
“It is a shame that the former governor, Aregbesola is sponsoring the Secretary of the party, Alhaji Razaq Salinsile against the State Chairman, Prince Adegboyega Famodun.
“The duo have a cordial relationship, and we are endowed with resourceful elders such as Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Sola Akinwumi and many others who will intervene and settle any dispute if there is any.
“Osun APC is ready for Congresses to hold whenever it pleases the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party.”
The party, however, said that it was because of Osun gubernatorial election that was not far from the time of Congresses then which made the NEC to engage in the postponement of the Congresses, and there is nothing the party at the state level will do without the knowledge of the National Headquarters of the party.
