2018: Osun APC Releases Additional Delegates' List For National Convention, Presidential Primary (See)

Ahead of the forthcoming National Convention and Presidential Primary of the All Progressives Congress in the country expected to hold in June this year, Osun State Chapter of the party has released a additional  delegates’ list to fill existing vacancies in the National Delegates’ List of the party from the state.

The supplementary list of delegates are to add up to statutory delegates list for the forthcoming Party National Convention and Presidential Primary expected to hold in June this year.

At the supplementary list screening exercise held at the party’s secretariat along Gbongan-Osogbo Road, which was supervised by the Congress Committee and Appeal Committee for the state as well as Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) representative, three delegates were picked from each of the 30 local government councils of the state to update the National Delegates’ List from the state.

The new delegates would join the statutory delegates list to replace those who have died, those who have withdrawn from partisan politics, those who have criminal cases against them, those who have been suspended or accused of anti-party activities, those who left the party for another one or those who have been convicted by court of law.

Speaking at the exercise, the leader of Congress /Appeal Committee, Honourable Salisu Mamman said that the committee came to Osogbo, Osun State at the instance of National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to conduct update of the delegate list from the state.

He explained that they are not in the state for party’s congress proper because the tenure of the present state executive will lapse in October 20, 2018 adding that all members of the state executive would remain in office till then stressing that by so there is no need for fresh congress in the state at present.

Hon. Mamman noted that the committee will come back sometimes in October at the expiration of the tenure of the present executive to conduct congress to fill vacancies into the state executive of the party.

The Chairman of the committee further said that both the make-up delegates and statutory delegates would join others from across the 36 states of the federation to perform major crucial assignment to elect new national leaders that would pilot the affairs of the party for the next four years and as well participate at the presidential primary to determine who becomes the party’s candidate for 2019 Presidential Election.

He therefore appealed to them to conduct themselves in a very mature manner to see to the smooth running of the affairs of the party at various levels.

The exercise was witnessed by INEC’s representative, Mrs. Agboola, who affirmed the exercise was in order.

The State Chairman of the Party, Gboyega Famodun, had earlier told the visiting that committee that the exercise was peaceful and assured that members of the party from the state are men of integrity and honour who know what to do when it comes to politics.
