Oyo APC faction rejects inauguration of Oke as Chairman, heads to court

Aggrieved members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State under the umbrella of Unity Forum on Monday declared that they have approached the court of law to challenge the inauguration of Chief Akin Oke as the state chairman of the party.

It was learnt that Akin Oke was on Monday inaugurated into office by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, national chairman of the party in Abuja.

But secretary of the group, Dr. Wasiu Olatunbosun, in a statement obtained by DAILY POST, said that the forum have no other option but to reject the purported inauguration by taking their grievances to the the court to challenge the swearing-in.

Olatunbosun said, “We wish to state our rejection of the swearing-in of Chief Oke. In the wee hours of yesterday (Sunday), the men of Governor Abiola Ajimobi had gone to town claiming that a top official in the Presidency from the South West had instructed the national leadership of the party to change its report on the congresses in Oyo State and swear in Chief Oke as the Chairman.

“We assure our teeming members and supporters that this act of injustice and ungodliness by men that were supposedly men of God will not stand.

“We have approached the courts to adjudicate on the matter. We restate our contention that the supporters of Governor Ajimobi did not pay for nor collected nomination forms for the ward congress of the party.”

The Unity Forum maintained that, “Everything built on the ward congress that never took place cannot stand.”
