Some All Progressives Congress, APC, federal lawmakers from Oyo State are optimistic that former Lagos governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will succeed in his new assignment which is aimed at reconciling aggrieved members of the ruling party.
Honourables Saheed Akinade-Fijabi, Olusegun Odebunmi (Bunvic), Olusegun Ogunwuyi as well Olamiju Alao-Akala, agreed that the continued existence of APC depends on the success of Tinubu’s assignment.
They spoke at the launch of Daniel Ayoola Dare (DAD) Foundation organised by Mr Sunday Dare, who is the commissioner in charge of stakeholders’ management at the Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC, in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, yesterday.
According to Akinade-Fijabi, who is representing Ibadan North West/ South West for the second term, said that the appointment of Tinubu to reconcile the aggrieved partymen was timely, urging all members of the party to unite as 2019 elections beckon.
Corroborating him, Bunvic, who is representing Ogo-Oluwa/Surulere for the second term, said he believes Tinubu has the capacity reconcile aggrieved members of the party.
The two-term council chairman also advised APC members to close rank as they move closer to election year.
Ogunwuyi, who last Thursday officially announced his defection to the APC from the Labour Party, LP, said he was happy that Tinubu started the reconciliation process immediately.
Speaking in the same vein, Alao-Akala who is the caretaker chairman of Ogbomoso North local government where his father, who later became governor, held sway, said he was optimistic that APC will come out victoriously with the task given Tinubu.
