APC chieftain condemn anti party activities of members in Ogun East 

…says no anointed candidate for 2019 yet
Having observed political alignment and realignment currently unfolding in among members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun East Senatorial District, one of the party chieftains in the area, Otunba Babatunde Onakoya has condemned anti party activities of members in the axis ahead of 2019 general elections.

The Chairman of Mobilization Team for Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s second term in Office, worried about high level of anti party activities and unapproved political meetings with governorship candidates, especially with governorship campaign team for 2019, saying it was too early for any members to align with governorship aspirants without a recourse to party’s directive.

Speaking at Eid-el-Fitr party hosted by Otunba Babatunde Onakoya, with APC stalwart in nine local government areas that make up Ogun East Senatorial District recently, Otunba Onakoya, also known as Debasco, said such move can jeopardise the chance of APC in 2019 if there were no unity and understanding among party members in the state.

“While speaking to thousands of party members, traditional rulers, council of chiefs as well as Chairman of Leguru Local Council Development Area of Odogbolu Local Government in Ijebu, Hon. Ololade Onakoya, the APC Chieftain Otunba Babatunde Onakoya declared that nobody can hijack party structure in the state without knowledge of the governor and our leaders in the party, therefore “all members should relax and be hopeful for the best in 2019”

He said, “I am very sorry for those that are claimed to be controlling our party by the feather and noise of the market. This is not time to antagonise one another, but to be united so that the party can win the 2019 elections”.

“We must not allow our actions and inactions, unnecessary alignment and realignment to truncate APC chance in 2019. Therefore, we must listen to the voices of our leaders and must not go against them. Let wait for our governor and party leaders to decide who to follow and don’t let us jump the gun.

“Governor Amosun is a man who has what we call common touch, symbol of hope and achiever in the struggle against all forms of oppressions and a father to all those who suffer injustice. We believe in his sterling leadership and know that he will get us the best candidate when the time comes.”

Responding on behalf of APC members in Leguru LCDA, Hon. Princess Victoria, described Otunba Onakoya as chief mobilizer who always puts smile on the faces of his people at Leguru since he created his political group and also being the Mobilisation Chairman for Governor Amosun second term in office, he never misled and sold out to the opposition during struggle of 2015 Governorship Election.

“It is not an exaggeration neither is it an oversimplified opinion that Otunba Babatunde Onakoya is the most loyal and faithful follower of Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, the party was in comatose situation in Ogun East, it is only Otunba Onakoya that uplift the lamp for people to see while the motive is to support the incumbent Governor Ibikunle Amosun on his second term in office.

“If Otunba Onakoya is to be placed on the same scale with other party faithful in other regions of the State, he may still probably outshine them in terms of loyalty to his master, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, not even a tape rule can be measure his loyalty”, she added.
