Four serving members of the House of Representatives from Oyo State, have pledged their support for the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State.

In a statement jointly signed on Thursday by Akeem Adeyemi, Jide Olatubosun, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe and Olumide Ojerinde said, “Sequel to the meeting held at the Oluyole Estate residence of our leader Late Senator Abiola Ajimobi convened by his wife Florence Ajimobi, in the interest of APC Oyo, were in all tendencies in Oyo State APC agreed to work with the State Party Leadership going forward to ensure APC Oyo has a united front as we approach the 2023 general election”.

“We the four legislators totally agree with the resolutions reached at that meeting and we therefore are not in support of the letter dated 17th May 2022 addressed to the APC National Party Chairman, in respect of Suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/ 147/2022, as we believe this may truncate the ongoing reconciliation process”.

The leadership crisis rocking the Oyo State APC seems not over. Although, the state chapter of the party elected a former commissioner, Ajiboye Omodewu as Chairman last year October and was inaugurated at the party secretariat in Ibadan but some party members were not happy with the choice.

The aggrieved party stalwarts and supporters however prefer Abu Gbadamosi who was sworn in at the Trans Amusement Park in Ibadan, the state capital. The national body supported and recognized Omodewu.
