The Oyo State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed its stance on participating in the forthcoming local government election in the state.

Naija News reports that APC, the major opposition political party in the State, said it will be partaking in the local government polls slated for April 2024.

It is understood that the Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) has concluded plans to conduct local government elections in the State.

The APC Publicity Secretary in the state, Wasiu Olawale Sadare, in a statement, confirmed the development.

He said the party had unanimously decided that the party would contest to win most of the local government seats in the state.

Sadare said, “The unanimous decision at the stakeholders’ meeting held today at our (Oke-Ado) State secretariat was that we would participate with a view to winning most of the available seats in the local government areas and local council development areas.

“I can assure you that by the time we are done with our final round of consultation on or before Monday, we will roll out a schedule of activities since OYSIEC has written to us about the extension of the deadline for the conduct of primary, which is now August 31, 2023.”
