Kwara APC Congratulates Oshiomhole, Pledges Support For His Reformation Agenda

The Kwara State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated the newly elected chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, describing his election as a call to cleanse and reposition the party to answer its name as a true progressive party.

The chairman of the party, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, in a statement released in Abuja on Monday expressed satisfaction with the emergence of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the party national chairman.

"On behalf of our teeming members in Kwara State, we congratulate our newly elected national chairman and the party for a successful national convention that ended last weekend.

"The new chairman who understands the problem rocking the party over time, while making his acceptance speech displayed sufficient knowledge of our problem and spoke to it.

"Oshiomhole emphasized the need for internal democracy within the party and commitment from all members of the party. He was very clear when he said that the crisis in some state chapters of the party will be addressed and a win-win status will be achieved, saying it is time to do away with arrogance.

"This is what we have been fighting to achieve since the struggle to have a party that can be owned by everyone and credible enough to midwife a better government started in our dear state.

"We have come this far because of the encouraging support we enjoyed from well meaning Kwarans home and abroad. We never envisaged a smooth ride, anyways, we have always maintained that the road will be rough but the struggle is worth given everything.

"We have not lost anything, because our traducers have achieved nothing new. We fought and exposed impunity, high handedness and injustice from the ward congress to the national convention.

"We equally displayed maturity in handling every stage of the struggle -no physical combat and all sorts of misbehaviour. We are peaceful, strategic and above all patriotic.

"We have waited for this time to speak to the public; there couldn't have been any public intervention because the final declaration of the convention results took time and definitely the first speech of the elected chairman couldn't have come earlier too. We were keen on the words of the new chairman as a compass for his administration.

The party commended his members that participated on the convention committee for making the state proud.

"All our members on the committee behaved as true Kwarans when they combined diligence with tenacity while discharging their duties. Alhaji Abdulganiyu Cook Olododo was conspicuously seen on the national televisions while working during voting, counting as a member of election committee. The two other men did excellently well.

"Those who sponsored and peddled falsehood concerning the appointment of Alhaji Abdulganiyu Cook Olododo, Alhaji Raheem Olawuyi and Hon. Ayo Obisesan must bury their heads in shame and be courageous enough to apologize to the state for their unpatriotic stance on the subject matter.

"We shall continue to seek within the means provided by the law to advance a free political space in Kwara State and entrench internal democracy in our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

"We are grateful to our members for the sacrifices they made since the journey started. We want to assure them that, despair is never a word in this type of struggle. They must remember that, we need more than ordinary persuasion to dissuade those who feed on impunity and have successfully indoctrinated many. Can ordinary effort dissuade those who feed on impunity and have recruited army of undescerning men and women over years? How can we help those who live on impunity everyday? It will never be an easy task to convert those who hold dear to heart feudalism as a religion."
