At a meeting attended by party stalwarts from across the state, held at the State party secretariat, Wednesday, the stakeholders alleged that the National caretaker committee’s bias is evident in “the committee’s favorable disposition to one tendency as against the interest of the three other tendencies that worked for the 100 percent success recorded by the party in the state in the 2019 general elections.”

The stakeholders, urged all members to continue to be calm, law abiding and steadfast in their support for the All Progressive Congress and its government at all levels, inspite of the deliberate provocation by agents of the Kwara State government.

On the crisis rocking the State chapter of the Party, they re affirmed that Hon Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa (BOB) remains the State Chairman, noting that “As loyal party members, we will not submit to any action that is at variance with the constitution of the party.”
Reviewing the ongoing membership revalidation and registration exercise in Kwara state, the stakeholders “urged that the exercise be cancelled because it has not substantially complied with the Constitution of the party and the rules and regulations set by the Caretaker committee to guide the exercise.”
