We are glad to inform the general public and members of our party, that our ward and local government congresses have been concluded and successful.
The internal mechanisms put in place by the outgoing leadership of Engr. Clement Faboyede has been adjudged by members to have been very successful in mitigating conflict within the party and ensuring that the decision on who represents from the ward to the local government and indeed to the state level, is made by the people within the corresponding jurisdiction.
The Chairman wishes to thank all our leaders, our BOT members, State Elders Council members, elected representatives, zonal leaders, local government and ward leaders for their roles in ensuring that our generally agreed principles of zoning of state, local government and ward positions was a success.
We recorded over 97.04% success rate at the ward levels where we had issues in just 6 out of 203 wards and 94.5% success rate at the local government level.
Our state congress to elect state officers to pilot the affairs of the party comes up on Tuesday the 24th of March at the State Secretariat, Alagbaka Akure and is expected to be a keenly contested election with dissenting voices against our unity list and zoning, being given the equal and fair opportunity to seek the mandate of our people.
Finally, the party congratulates all elected party officers at the Ward and Local Government levels and assures the aspirants for state offices of equal and fair treatment.
