As the battle for the soul of the All Progressives Congress, APC, rages on, stakeholders have pronounced Senator Ayoade Adeseun as the leader of the party in Ogbomoso zone.

Ayo Adeseun


This was contained in a three-point communique signed by Barrister Dapo Atanda, a former member of the Governing Council of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, and which was made available to newsmen.
The communique was the outcome of a meeting held yesterday at the residence of Senator Adeseun along Iresa-Apa road, Onipaanu, Ogbomoso.
It was attended by many party leaders including Adeseun, representatives of Senator Fatai Buhari and Chief Sunday Dare, Alhaji Basiru Akanbi, Mrs. Bimpe Martins, Prince Abass Bayewuwon, Chief Ademola Agba Demo, the five Ogbomoso councils chairmen, councils women and youths leaders, Hon Remi Adepoju, Hon Sunday Adedeji and ward exco members in the five council areas.
The communique states, “We reject without pretence the selection of Mr. Isaac Omodewu as the Oyo state chairman of the APC. It is obvious that he emerged through a selection process. So, he cannot be the chairman of our party.”
The statement affirms Senator Adeseun as the leader of the party in Ogbomoso zone, which comprises the five local governments of Ogbomoso North, Ogbomoso South, Oriire, Surulere and Ogo-Oluwa local governments.
It avers “Adeseun has paid his dues in politics and in the party and is the leader that can reposition the party and pilot it to victory in 2023. He has the experience, the wherewithal and clout to get the job done.”
The stakeholders went ahead to re-affirm the election of Abu Gbadamosi as the state’s consensus, authentic party chairman.
The communique asserted that “Abu Gbadamosi is the candidate supported by all seven zonal chairmen in the state.”
Dapo Atanda added that the group would not leave the party, “We can’t vacate a house we helped to build for temants. We will rather send the tenants away.”
