Members of All Progressives Congress in Ibadan Outer cities in Oyo State have been charged to shun any act that can tarnish the image and progress of the party in their respective constituencies.
The standard bearer of the APC in the March 9 Governorship Election in Oyo State, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu gave the charge during his thank you visit to the members of the party in the six local governments making up Ibadan Outer Cities on Thursday. The gathering which held at the Party’s office at Egbeda Local Government along the New Ife Road, Gbagi covered Egbeda, Akinyele, Lagelu, Ona Ara, Oluyole and Ido Local governments.
Adelabu stated that the outcome of the election indicated that nobody is mightier than God and this necessitated the appreciation tour to the people of Oyo State because they voted for our party (APC). He thanked the people and party members from these area specially while he reiterated that they voted massively for our party as evidenced in the election of all our party’s candidate at the House of Reps and Senatorial Elections.
“I urged you to stay away from any act that can hinder the progress of our great party, saying members should shun their individual differences and desist from actions that can lead to factionalisation of the party in Oyo State, he added.
Oloye Adelabu said that the newly commisioned Penkelemesi Political headquarters at Jericho Ibadan and other Liason offices in each Federal constituency will bring him generally closer to the people and the grassroots in particular..
Adding that arrangements have been concluded to commence operations at the recently commisioned Skill Acquisition Center at Oluyoro Oke-Adu Ibadan where youths will be trained on different vocational programmes.

“We are not surprised by the actions of Bayo Adelabu because he has a humble background and most especially must have inherited so much from his grandfather’s political sagacity. It’s clear to every party member and the voting public that it wasn’t a mistake choosing Bayo Adelabu as APC Governorship candidate for the March 9 election.
They emphasized the need for members to strictly adhere to the party’s principles for the overall peace, progress and development of the APC, as they all concluded.
