Rebuilding Osun APC For Posterity
Being An Acceptance Speech of the Newly Elected APC Chairman in Osun State, Hon Rasaq Salinsile.
In the last two years, our dear party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has witnessed a reprehensible retrogression in party management, membership drive and political activities. The worse of all is the avoidable division orchestrated by the highest beneficiaries of the party’s struggle.
We all know that The Osun Progressives (TOP) came into existence to restructure and rebuild the APC and position it for victory in future elections. Our intervention has yielded positive result and saved the party from losing its members to another party.
TOP has been able to resuscitate the consciousness of the party members and rebuild the love and confidence in the party. Without mincing words, I am happy to say that we own the party and we are the progressives.
Dear APC members, with my election as the Chairman of APC in the State of Osun, it is my belief that we have all taken a promising and informed decision to redirect the party affairs and revive the progressive tendencies which have been bastardised by the opportunists. The current state of the APC in Osun is a reflection of poor management, which we shall begin to correct with the mandate given to me henceforth.
I shall work towards the actualisation of a prosperous APC and take the party to an enviable height. We have made sacrifices for this party and we will not allow it to sink or collapse. We will survive this current crisis, intimidation, threat and oppression by the opportunists. We have been strong, but I still want to urge us to be stronger in few months to come. Our victory is near.
I sincerely appreciate our leader, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and other leaders of the party. I commend all members of the APC in general for counting me worthy of leading the party. By the grace of God, I will not disappoint you.
Hon Honourable Rasaq Salinsile
Chairman, Osun APC
