Ajimobi’s Reconciliation Committee self-serving, diversionary – Oyo APC Aspirants Forum

The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Aspirants Forum has written off the reconciliation committee recently set up by the former governor of the state, Senator Isiaka Ajimobi.

The forum in a statement signed by Comrade Akeem Ayo Babalola , Coordinator; Hon. Ademola Solalu, Secretary and Hon. Dejo Adebisi Director, Media & Strategy and made available to The State Online described the committee as self-serving and diversionary.

According to the group “We wish to declare without mincing words, that the recently announced reconciliation committee constituted by the former  “Constituted Authority”  of Oyo State is at best diversionary, self-serving, an affront to the National Leadership’s Chief Bisi Akande’s  reconciliation committee; in which we have an unflinching confidence. This action therefore represents an embarrassing exhibition of confusion taken to an absurd level, rubbishing all past efforts of well –intentioned party loyalists at uniting our dear party.

“We recall that as a body of cheated, scammed party members, yet profusely loyal to the party, we have met with several stake-holders in our party towards strengthening and repositioning of our great party. They include Governorship Aspirants, members of the National Assembly, the Ministers of Youths and sports, APC Worldwide Reconciliation Committee, the state EXCO of our party and recently, we just submitted a memo to the National Reconciliation Committee, Abuja. This latest committee therefore, in our opinion paints a picture of a lost APC reconciliation ship sailing in circles in the turbulent political waters of Oyo State for lack of compass!

“We perceive translucent sincerity in all these efforts, an attempt to deceive the National Leadership on the present perilous state of our party in the State. Perhaps for a sinister personal gains and perpetuation of injustice, arrogance, impunity, which abinitio led us to where we are today, as a party in Oyo State. If we may ask, how does a culprit appoint the investigators and the judge?

“Funnily enough, with due respect to some members of the said committee, majority of them cannot deny not being accessory to and after the fact of all inequities meted out to our members under the command of their Emperor.  Who now, true to character, is asking the aggrieved to apologize for crying when flogged, after which his own apology follows! Leadership not accepting responsibility for failure, apportioning blames to the followership as well! It is obvious that almost all the members are beneficiaries of the proceeds of the political robbery committed against our colleagues.

“As such, because we can still feel the hands of DECEIT behind this unholy contrivance.  We urge some honorable members, (for whom we still have much respect), hoodwinked into the committee to guard their honor by declining the membership pronto, keep a political distance for the time being so as not to be infested with the demeaning virus inherent in this dubious assignment.

“In the same vein, we appeal to all well –meaning, genuinely aggrieved Party Members and other groups to treat the committee with the scorn it deserves because coming in this season of a virulent viral scourge, the committee has suffered a still-birth.”
