LG Congress: We Contested, Won 27 Councils, One Area Office, Says TOP
Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who belong to The Osun Progressives, contested and won 27 councils and one Area Office in the just concluded Local Government Congress of the party in the State of Osun.
Chairman of the TOP, Reverend Adelowo Adebiyi stated this on Sunday in a press release.
According to Adebiyi, delegates of the APC who were largely members of the party elected as executives in the last Ward Congress came out on Saturday to elect their party officials at their various local governments.
Adebiyi expressed happiness at the large turn out of members of the party at local government congress, describing it as impressive.
The former Chairman of the APC in the State noted the huge turnout signposts the desire of the members to really recreate the APC for a more useful purpose and take it away from the near abyss in which it has been taken recently.
He thanked the APC faithfuls for sharing the laudable desire of a reinvigorated APC that will stand the test of times and be a perennial election winner, which is what the TOP stands for.
He congratulated the Osun Progressives (TOP) for out-smarting the Governor’s group, IleriOluwa, supported by the government and outgoing executives with their accomplice in the Elegbeleye congress committee in the exercise.
According to him, it is only a purchased character like Elegbeleye committee that would continue to carry about the air of “all is well” as he had done so far.
It can not surprise any discerning mind that Elegbeleye committee serves the hatchet job for which they were procured with all his inglorious activities so far in Osun Congress affairs.
Adebiyi noted that the conduct of Elegbeleye will be his future albatross and great undoing as Karma will surely catch up with him, even as he stated that his antics will come to naught when truth confronts it soon.
The former APC boss congratulated the new executives in the 27 LGs and one Area Office where TOP participated and urged them to be good ambassadors and change agents for the party.
