Senator Kola Balogun, lawmaker representing Oyo South Senatorial District in the National Assembly has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo state needs to put its house in order and forget the past.

He made these known while featuring on South West Political Circuit’ a programme on Ibadan-based radio station, Fresh 105.9FM, on Saturday.
He also spoke on the performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC), during the last governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.
His words: “We have to put our house in order, forget the past and move on.
“People should come together and rebuild the party unconditionally so that the party will continue to be relevant in Oyo State.”
The Senator gave the 9th National Assembly a pass mark adding that the Assembly has done very well in the area of budget passage and has good working relationship with the executive arm of government.
He lamented the functions of the executive arm of government which overtime is now what the legislature arm is doing.
He said he wished the incoming 10th National Assembly would make a law that would remove facilitation of projects as part of the functions of the lawmakers, so that they would concentrate on making laws and performing oversight functions.
He also narrated how he was worried about how to break the monopoly of Overland airline, which has been operating in Ibadan for years.
He said his meeting with the Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema led to the operation of the airline in Ibadan.
