The immediate past governor of Oyo state and the leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has said the party needs total reconciliation with all aggrieved members for it bounce back in the state.
Senator Ajimobi in a statement Wednesday in Ibadan cautioned APC members in the state to stop the ongoing blame game in the party and embrace reconciliation.
Further, the senator said what the party needs now in the state is “reconciliation among party members”
The former governor said the reconciliation has become imperative because of the need to reposition the party and put it in good stead for the challenges ahead.
“To achieve genuine reconciliation, a committee of the party would be inaugurated soon to drive the process.
“We should rise above scapegoatism or blame game. Let us all reconcile and forge ahead to reposition our party for the challenges ahead.” he said.
“We have all had our shares of mistakes. No one should be blamed or absolved of such human imperfection. Life itself is about conflict, what matters is to resolve such conflicts, which is part of politics. We should not apportion blame at this time because in the final analysis, no one is faultless in the circumstance. We all contributed in one way or the other.”
He then urged all APC faithful in Oyo state to understand that life is about conflict and resolution, adding that as human beings we are neither infallible nor immune to mistakes.
According to him all members must know that “leadership is about taking decision after taking into consideration all competing options. In politics, as it is in life, all expectations cannot be met.”
