Osun APC Carries Out Make-Up Agents List

Osun State Chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has completed make-up agents' rundown to fill existing opening in the National Delegates List of the gathering from the state.

The make-up delegates are to signify statutory agents' rundown for the imminent party National Convention and Presidential Primary anticipated that would hold in June this year.

At the make-up list screening exercise held at the gathering's secretariat along Gbongan-Osogbo Road which was regulated by Congress Committee and Appeal Committee for the state and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) agent, three representatives were picked from every one of the 30 nearby government boards of the state to refresh 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The new delegates would join the statutory delegates list to replace those who have died, those who have withdrawn from partisan politics, those who have criminal cases against them, those who have been suspended or accused of anti-party activities, those who left the party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, Hon. Salisu Mamman, the leader of Congress/Appeal Committee, 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.

Salisu explained that they are not in the state for party’s congress proper because the tenure of the present state executive would lapse in October 20, 2018.

Salisu added that all members of the state executive would remain in office until then stressing that by so doing, there is no need for fresh congress in the state at present.

salisu noted that the committee would 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.

Gboyega Famodun, the state chairman of the party, 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 known what to do when it comes to politics.
