A group within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, the Concerned APC Stakeholders has alleged that the party structure has been hijacked by Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, wife of the immediate past Governor of the State, late Abiola Ajimobi and the acting Chairman of the party, Chief Akintola Oke.
Chairman of the group, Mr. Olusoji Adelana made this disclosure while addressing journalists on Monday.
He told journalists that Mrs. Ajimobi and Oke have hijacked the structure of the party because they are claiming to have federal backing.
He explained that what happened during the time of late Ajimobi where many people left the party is repeating itself.
“The three tendencies are Teslim Folarin and Alao-Akala, Mrs. Ajimobi and Baba Oke and Uniity Group where we have Adeseun, Deolu Akande, Soji Akanbi and others, while the Minister of Youth and Sports, Chief Sunday Dare is said to be seeking unity among the tendencies.
“For peace to reign, the unity group decided to work with the Ajimobi and Baba Oke camp, but Mrs. Ajimobi has hijacked the party’s structure. A reconciliatory meeting held with Baba Oke on Sunday night was deadlocked as the acting Chairman refused to shift grounds on the order of the former First Lady.
“So, the problem that occurred during the time of her husband is repeating itself. It was due to this that made President Buhari to lose Oyo State in the Presidential election. APC also woefully lost gubernatorial election to Seyi Makinde.
“She and Baba Oke have used their powerful relations in Kano and Abuja to outsmart other camps, and this is not good for the future of the party.
“Mrs. Ajimobi said that she has zoned the positions and no one can change it. This is inimical to the progress of the party. We are saying that we should work in harmony to fight the common enemy which is PDP.
“I am using this medium to call on the national eadership of the party to call Mrs. Ajimobi to order so as not to destroy the party as the husband did in his time.
“APC called a stakeholders meeting today, how many people went there? Only few, because the structure of the party has been hijacked.”
