The South-West leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and governors have pledged to rally support for the victory of Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu at the State Governorship Election.

They also declared that their immediate concern is victory of the party in both Edo and Ondo States.

The South-West governors who made this known at an APC Caucus Meeting held at Oke Fia Government House, Osogbo and chaired by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.

This is the first time the APC South-West caucus meeting holds since the appointment of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola as the Southwest representative on the Caretaker/Extra-ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Briefing newsmen on the outcome of the meeting, Governor Oyetola disclosed that the meeting focused, among other things, on the urgent need to rally support for the reelection of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu who emerged as the party’s candidate ahead of the governorship election in Ondo State.

According to him, also discussed at the meeting which was attended by the party chairmen of the six states in the South-West and other members of the APC caucus in the zone, included the need to strategically position the zone ahead of the party’s national convention expected to hold after the Edo and Ondo governorship elections respectively.

Oyetola maintained that part of the strategies was to reach out to all the aggrieved members of the party in all the States of the Southwest, to appeal to them to put the party’s interests above their respective personal interests for the party to progress.

The governor said, “We had a successful deliberation on various issues. First of all was the opportunity the meeting afforded us to fully brief members on the matters on the agenda of the national caretaker committee of the party, of which I’m the representative of the South-West zone.

“The briefing is necessary to enable us to reposition the Southwest strategically ahead of the national convention to hold in six months’ time.

“We also discussed the need to immediately reach out to members that are aggrieved for necessary reconciliation and ensure victory of our party in the coming governorship election in Ondo.

“Of course, the party’s victory in Edo is our concern but our immediate focus is on Ondo, being one of the Southwest States. That we lost Oyo is painful. We can’t afford to lose Ondo. We are happy that primary has been successfully conducted and a candidate has emerged.

“While we need to do everything possible to take Oyo back, we must rally support for our candidate to ensure victory for our party in Ondo. So, we discussed the need to work together to collectively appeal to the aggrieved parties. All should put party’s interest above personal interests.

“We also discussed the need to ensure reconciliation of members in all the States.”

In attendance at the meeting were the Deputy Governor, Mr. Benedict Alabi; the APC Chairman in Osun, Prince Gboyega Famodun; APC Chairman, Lagos State, Chief Tunde Balogun; APC Chairman, Ogun State, Chief Yemi Sanusi; APC Chairman, Ekiti State, Chief Paul Omotoso; APC Chairman, Oyo State, Chief Akin Oke; APC Chairman, Ondo State, Engr. Ade Adetimehin; Zonal Publicity Secretary, Honourable Karounwi Oladepo; Zonal Legal Adviser, Alh Tajudeen Lenboye; Zonal Special Leader, Paul Adelabu; and Zonal Secretary, Chief Ayo Afolabi, among others.
