The member of the House of Representatives representing Oluyole federal constituency, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is poised to take back Oyo State, to restore the development legacy of late former governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the master-builder of modern Oyo State.
A statement by Hon Akande-Sadipe’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Olamilekan Olusada, state that she made these remarks at the meeting with the APC National Working Committee, NWC, members assigned to supervise the party’s revalidation/registration exercise, which was held on Tuesday at the new Oyo APC secretariat.
Speaking at the meeting, Hon Akande-Sadipe, who chairs the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs noted that she was proud of the reconciliation of the party in Oyo State.
She said, “The renewed re-energized APC for the change Oyo needs is here. Yesterday was a day of pride for our dear party.
“We are on track to change the narrative; we have learned from the lessons of the past. We are builders. We will continue the development of the modern Oyo State spearheaded by our leader, late Senator Abiola Ajimobi.”
While welcoming members of the committee to the Pacesetter State, the lawmaker reiterated that Oyo was a first in many things and Oyo APC shall make this revalidation/registration exercise a success to gain its place of pride back.
And as usual, she threw in the gender and youth inclusion appeal, insisting that APC women would play an important role in the registration process and in return want a fair representation of 60/40 male to female ratio in the coming elections.
She added, “We women of APC would play our part in this registration drive; hold our own and prove our worth to the party. The party in turn should take note and ensure that a better male to female ratio is achieved. 50/50 would be nice but 60/40 in 2023 will do.”
Also, during the meeting, the chairman of the NWC Committee was asked the question of how revalidation/registration of Diaspora APC members would be achieved.
