[JUST IN] Oyo APC Crisis: Outgoing Chairman, Akin Oke, Submits “Harmonised List” To National Headquarters (PHOTOS)
Amidst Controversial Circumstances over the weekend which witness another parallel meeting over Harmonised Party list, The Caretaker Chairman Akin Oke held a separate meeting at the Oke-Ado Party Secretariat While the Chairman of APC Elders Council and a former governor of Oyo State Chief Adebayo Alao Akala also held another meeting at his Bodija- Awosika resident, reports reaching Akéde Ọ̀yọ́ now is that the party Caretaker chairman Chief Akin Oke has submitted the Harmonised list to APC National Headquarters.
The Oyo APC is presently polarised along the lines of those loyal to former governor Adebayo Alao-Akala and caretaker chairman, Chief Akin Oke. Though the crisis has lingered since the conduct of the state congress, the polarization along the lines of the Adebayo Alao-Akala and Akin Oke became more evident last Friday when they convened two different meetings and produced two different ‘harmonised’ lists of state excos.
Party leaders and stalwarts were divided in their attendance at the two different meetings, with both meetings resolving to send their ‘harmonised’ lists to the National Secretariat of the party.
However, the Chairman of the Oyo state congress appeal committee, Mr Samuel Ogbuku and state congress committee chairman, Mr Gambo Lawan were present at the meeting held at house of Alao-Akala, who is Chairman of the Oyo APC Elders’ Council.
Like it was weeks ago, some Oyo APC members say they look up to the national secretariat of the party to resolve the imbroglio, warning that the party will suffer in the 2023 election if it continues with its current divided front.
As at the time of filling this report, we’ve not been able to confirm if the Alao Akala led fraction had submit it own Harmonised list to the APC National Headquarters.
