The All Progressives Congress (APC) is to participate in the local government election in Oyo state slated for April , 2024.

Oyo state publicity secretary, Comrade Wale Sadare, who said this during a telephone conversation on Saturday disclosed that it was true that APC was now ready to participate in the council poll.

He stressed that leadership of the party conveyed a stakeholders meeting where majority opinion was in support of the party fielding candidates for the council poll.

“The unanimous decision at the stakeholder 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 would roll out 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”, he said. 

Comrade Sadare added, “We are progressives in politics and we are always ready to play our part as democrats. Don’t forget that the main duty of political parties is to field candidates in major elections.

“We have had to face serious pressure from party faithful who want to contest and serve the masses at the grassroots as council chairmen and councilors. We have seen what the present administration has turned the third tier of government into in the last four years and it is now imperative for the APC to rescue the situation”.

Comrade Sadare stressed, “Even Gov. Makinde said it openly that he was not in support of autonomy for local government and this explains why he does not allow the council administrators to function as expected.”
