All Progressives Congress (APC) Media and Strategy Committee Thursday said that the party is now more united, cohesive and effective to give the people of Oyo state the best in party politics and take over power in 2023.
The party made this known in a statement jointly signed by its Oyo state Chairman and Secretary Media and Strategy Committee for the registration exercise, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan and Olawale Shadare.
Oyo APC in the statement emphasised that there would be no going back in its total commitment to fully leverage on the unprecedented success it achieved in the recently concluded membership registration and revalidation exercise.
It restated its commitment to build a progressive party that would be a pride of all the people of Oyo state and Nigeria as a whole.
According to the committee, the grand success recorded in the registration exercise has opened doors for effective re-engineering, strengthening and repositioning of APC in the state.
“APC has become more united, cohesive and effective to give the people of Oyo State the best in party politics and take over power in 2023, from the infantile leadership of the Peoples Democratic which has set Oyo State backwards in virtually all facets of life”, it said.
Oyo APC added, “it was no secret that many people within and outside the state were sceptical about the possibility of the membership registration and revalidation exercise achieving the desired goals in Oyo owing to the fact that we do not have an APC governor”.
“The fear was not unfounded because the role expected of a governor in prosecuting such a project cannot be overemphasis. However, the leadership of Chief Akin Oke rose up to the challenge and the whole exercise was hitch-free and fruitful in the end.”
The committee lauded the Chief Akin Oke-led state caretaker committee of the party, attributing the success of the registration exercise to the profound and efficient leadership of Chief Akin Oke and his able team.
It further said, “while we are full of praise of all critical stakeholders in the affairs of Oyo APC as well as members and supporters of the party in the state, we assure that the necessary machinery has since been put in place to turn the gains of the exercise into a springboard for electoral victory in all future elections in the state and particularly that of 2023.
It emphasised that the overwhelming support and enthusiasm demonstrated towards the party clearly indicated that APC remains the party to beat in Oyo state.
The Oyo APC warned against the circulation of concocted figures and data on the outcome of the registration/revalidation exercise.
