The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ondo State on Thursday charged opposition to stop unproductive war against its Chairman, Ade Adetimehin.
The ruling party also urged the newly elected chairman, Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Ondo State chapter, Hon. Charles Fagbohunka, to be pragmatic and innovative during his tenure of office.
Fagbohunka, the State Organising Secretary, emerged the new chairman IPAC in a transparent election, conducted under the watch of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Akure, defeating his closest opponent and State Chairman of the Young Democratic Party (YDP), Hon. Olanipekun Adebeye, with a wide margin.
In a Press Statement signed by its Spokesman, Alex Kalejaye, the ruling APC views the feat as a clear indication that Ondo APC is healthy, stable and focused, contrary to hollow claims by a few individuals.
APC urged Fagbohunka to draw from his political experience over the years to harmonise the parties, and ensure the group provides quality political education to the electorate.
“We expect Hon. Fagbohunka to be innovative in his leadership style during his tenure as chairman of IPAC, Ondo State chapter.”
The party congratulated him on the encouraging victory, and urges him to justify the confidence reposed in him by the leaders of IPAC in Ondo State.
“The party appeald to unrepentant critics of the Adetimehin-led State Executive to jettison their unproductive stance against a properly constituted executive, that enjoys popular and legal backings.”
The party wished to admonish that it is not demeaning for a leader to embrace the truth, retrace his inimical steps, once it is discovered his efforts are merely exercise in futility.
“However, we view criticising popular political setting and decision, out of sheer jealousy and hypocrisy, as a parody of how politics ought to be played. This neither extols nor glorifies individuals or groups,” Kalejaye said.
