APC Gives Akinlade, Amosun Loyalists Conditions To Rejoin Party
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress in Ogun State has announced the conditions for the governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement, Adekunle Akinlade, and loyalists of former governor Ibikunle Amosun to rejoin the party.
The party, in a statement by its Caretaker Committee’s Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, on Tuesday, said the returnees must withdraw their court cases against the party and go back to their various wards to re-enrol and reconcile with their people and leaders of the party.
The party, which spoke 24 hours after Akinlade announced his return and others to the APC, also enjoined them to be ready to obey the party’s constitution and follow the due process of rejoining the party.
Akinlade had announced on Monday that he and other loyalists of Amosun who were members of the APM had resolved to rejoin the APC.
But the party said, “The leadership of the All Progressives Congress in Ogun State has received news of the return of the entire members of the Allied Peoples Movement in Ogun State, its governorship candidate in the last election and the collapse of all its structures into our great party, the APC.
“The party, at any point in time, is therefore ready to receive repentant members back into its fold.
“However, while we see the announced return of the APM members into our party as a welcome development, we are quick to add that there is a process of joining or returning to our party in accordance with the party’s constitution and established procedures.”
The APC urged ex-members planning to rejoin the party to return to their various wards for registration and realignment.
