The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has inaugurated committees to reconcile aggrieved party members.
A number of aspirants and their supporters are still aggrieved by the outcome of the September 3 primary election, which produced Akeredolu as the party’s flag bearer.
The reconciliation committees are in three folds, one for each senatorial district and each is headed by a distinct notable party leader in the specified district.
An aspirant, Dr. Tunji Abayomi, will head the committee for Ondo North Senatorial District. He will be working together with others including Taofeek Abdulsalam, Akin Aibinuomo, Moyosola Oladunni, Dotun Owanikin, Foluso Babade and Femi Osedimbola.
In Ondo Central, the committee is headed by a former senator representing Ondo Central, Senator Ayo Akinyelure, who will be working with Ademola Adegoroye, Gboyega Adedipe, Dr. Jibayo Adeyeye, Ayo Agbomuserin and Agboola Kelly.
The third committee constituted for Ondo South Senatorial District is headed by Femi Agagu, the former Chief of Staff to the late Dr. Olusegun Agagu.
He will be assisted by Oladunni Odu, Diran Iyantan, Yele Akinya, Oluyide Mekuleyi, Festus Adefiranye and Chief POA Oyetan.
Speaking during the inauguration of the committees in Akure, the state capital, Akeredolu said it is important for APC to go into the election as one family with a common objective.
According to him, the common agenda for all is to rescue Ondo State from the misrule of the Olusegun Mimiko-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and place the state on the path of sustainable development and progress.
