Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has said that the Derin Adebiyi-led executive committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will complete its term in office.
TribuneOnline recalls that the national leadership of the party last Wednesday, dissolved all executive committees from the state to the ward levels ahead of the general elections.
Amosun stated this during his meeting with members of the dissolved exco and leaders of APC drawn from the 236 wards, held at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta, on Friday, while insisting that the exco would remain in office for four years.
He urged hundreds of party supporters at the secretariat to ensure that they vote massively for the President in the February 16, 2019, presidential election.
Amosun said: “Our detractors are trying to destroy the APC in Ogun State. The best way to answer them is to vote massively for President Buhari. This is because power resides with the people and not with the detractors who are bent on destroying us. We will tell them that we are on ground in Ogun State.”
He said Ogun APC does not fear the adversaries of the party in the state but “the leeway that they enjoy is our fear for God and President Buhari.”
He thanked members for standing steadfast in the face of oppression and violation of their fundamental rights by the National Secretariat of the party, he urged them to eschew violence and aggression of any kind and said they must conduct themselves peacefully throughout the 2019 elections.
Amosun disclosed that he would launch his senatorial campaign on Thursday, December 27, 2018, adding that branded APC vehicles would be distributed to the 20 local government chapters of the party for the purpose of electioneering campaign.
