Explore internal mechanism for redress, Ajimobi urges angry APC members
Chairman of the North West National Peace and Reconciliation Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Abiola Ajimobi, says the post-primaries crises among members of the party were not intractable.
Ajimobi, who is the governor of Oyo State, disclosed this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr. Bolaji Tunji, on Monday.
He appealed to aggrieved party members in the North-West Zone to take advantage of the committee’s reconciliation meeting scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday in Kaduna.
Ajimobi promised that the committee would listen to the grievances of party members with the view to resolving them amicably.
He said, “As in every human endeavour, there is bound to be disagreement within the APC family, especially in relation to the just-concluded primaries.
“Being the largest party in Africa, we had a large number of eminently qualified people who jostled for tickets.
“But, as in every contest, a winner must emerge and those who could not actualise their ambition are bound to feel embittered, no matter how transparent the process might be.
“Let me use this opportunity to appeal to our members to explore the internal mechanism for seeking redress in the larger interest of the party,’’ he said.
