The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State will soon join hands with the Kogi State chapter to ensure victory for the party during the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi.
The chairman of the party in Ondo State, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, dropped the hint in Akure, when he led the State Working Committee in a parley with the leaders of Igbo, Hausa, and Ibira communities, at the state secretariat of the party.
Adetimehin said the state chapter of the APC would constitute “a comprehensive committee of members of the state executive committee, and representatives of the various communities in the state that will join our brethren in Kogi State.”
The party boss explained that the whole duty of the committee is to boost the morale of the party members in Kogi State; work assiduously with them to retain the state for the APC
The governorship election in Kogi State comes up November 10.
Adetimehin, according to a statement by the State Publicity Secretary, Comrade Alex Kalejaye, appealed to the various communities to overlook whatever “unhealthy behaviour or attitude” that might have been exhibited by either party stalwart, or agents of the government.
The party chairman enumerated some of the measures taken by the APC-controlled government to give the non-indigenes sense of belonging.
“Appointing Special Assistants to Mr. Governor from all the communities appointing supervisors and executive members of the party are all done to promote oneness”, he explained.
“There can’t be us without you; you are very important to us. I urge all to imbibe the culture of always defending the good image of this party; let us not destroy ourselves behind each other”, he counselled.
He said the Ondo APC regards non-indigenes as fellow citizens of the state, adding, “and we feel you are entitled to whatever benefits available.”
