Osogbo—Ahead of the 2018 governorship election in Osun State, the All Progressives Congress APC in the state has declared that there was no faction in the party.
The party also called on its members, supporters and friends to disregard false information spreading across the state that the party was breaking into factions adding that;
“The party’s leadership is intact and solidly behind the Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola-led government.”
In a statement by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, the APC stated categorical that; “You are either in the APC or you are out – there is no faction in our party.
“We have one chairman in the person of Prince Gboyega Famodun. You cannot be out of the party and still claim to be a faction of it”, the APC said, stressing that those spreading the lies are veritable losers.
“Anyone who says otherwise is an agent of the PDP and one of those disgruntled elements in the state, working with merchants of evil to bring death, destruction and anarchy to the state.
“The ugly past is enough lesson to us that when inordinately ambitious people create discord within the party, we have a responsibility to unite and move on without the dissidents.
“It’s not in the interest of the people that a party that has done so much for Osun should dissipate energy on dissidents. We are focused and united.
Only those who have bought into the sadistic narrative and dangerous scheming of the PDP are thinking otherwise.
“The APC is therefore standing together and determined to overcome whatever obstacles the PDP and it’s agents, wheresoever located, are piling in our way to prevent continuity and progress in the state.
“Our people must not allow the difficulties of the moment, which was created largely by the PDP misrule at the Federal level, influence their stand for progress.”
“They should remember the deaths that the PDP fostered by creating a situation, which allowed flood waters to wreak destruction in our cities, causing avoidable loss of lives. “PDP is not an alternative to APC in Osun state and our people are sensible enough to know it.
‘Osun must stand united and crush the PDP and its agents, because all that the party offers is mayhem, kleptocracy and revisionism. “Our party is on course to repeat the feat of 2014, come August 2018′, the APC boasted.
