Oyetola: APC suspends Aspirants’ campaigns in Osun East
The ruling All Progressives Congress APC in Osun East has ordered National and State Assembly aspirants in the zone to suspend all electioneering until further notice, saying its main focus is how to deliver the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola for a second term.
The statement reads; “Sequel to the new timetable released by INEC on the primary/emergence of candidates for the national assembly and state house of assembly, the Osun East Senatorial Officers met in Osu, Atakunmosa West local government on the 4th of March 2022 and resolved at the following:
The INEC timetable has unwittingly put the party in a sensitive situation which needs to be properly managed to ensure the success of the party in the July 16th gubernatorial election.
“The Oyetola 4+4 project is very much sacrosanct and should be the focus of all party members. APC members should not allow the new timetable cum personal ambition to make us lose focus of the BIGGER picture which is our 4+4 agenda.
All aspirants from Osun East senatorial district are directed not to start a personal campaign until a directive is released from the party leadership from the state or any other contrary directive from the Senatorial Office.
“The Senatorial office would from now begin to monitor the activities of all aspirants across the Senatorial District to ensure compliance with this directive.
Screening of all aspirants will precede any primary or consensus arrangements.
“The campaign activities of aspirants while this directive is operative will form part of the basis of the screening exercise.
Members of the party are reminded that a well-established principle of party politics is the Supremacy of the Party”
