Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - Lai Mo­hammed From Ke­hinde Akinyemi, Abeokuta

The Ogun State Congress Ap­peal Com­mit­tee of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has as­sured that jus­tice would be done to pe­ti­tions re­ceived over the last ward and lo­cal govern­ment con­gresses in the state.

Chair­man of the ap­peal com­mit­tee, Al­haji Ikra Bil­bis, told news­men that the com­mit­tee re­ceived five pe­ti­tions and would sub­mit its re­port to the party’s head­quar­ters be­fore Satur­day’s (to­mor­row) state congress.

The com­mit­tee ar­rived Abeokuta, the Ogun State cap­i­tal on Tues­day, to hear and con­sider pe­ti­tions aris­ing from the wards and lo­cal govern­ment con­gresses, which has caused cri­sis in the APC in the state.

At the sit­ting of the com­mit­tee on Wed­nes­day, the pro­ceed­ings were stepped down fol­low­ing mis­un­der­stand­ing among the party mem­bers with claims and counter claims by the Chief Oluse­gun Osoba and Sen. Ibikunle Amo­sun sup­port­ers as to who in­sti­gated the con­tro­versy.

Both groups how­ever de­scribed the de­vel­op­ment as a mis­un­der­stand­ing which will be re­solved us­ing the in­ter­nal mech­a­nism of the party.

The com­mit­tee later re­con­vened to con­sider the pe­ti­tions and at the re­sumed hear­ing, the party’s state congress chair­man, Ope salami, who presided over the con­gresses told the ap­peal com­mit­tee that the re­sults of the state congress were valid.
