Former Governor of Oyo State and Chairman, Elders Advisory council, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, has described the ongoing registration and revalidation of membership exercise of the APC as impressive with the huge turnout witnessed within the first two days of commencement of the programme.
Alao-Akala made this assertion shortly after revalidating his membership of the party at his Sabo/Taara ward 10, Olukotun compound polling unit in Ogbomoso North Local Government Area of Oyo state.
According to the former governor, who addressed party faithful at the registration centre, “your unprecedented turnout for this membership registration and revalidation exercise tells a lot about your readiness and willingness to stand with the party come rain, come shine.
“You have willingly come out to identify with the All Progressives Congress without any form of inducement or coercion and which is a pointer to the fact that our great party the APC is acceptable across all divides.
“Let me now shock you, all things being equal and without mincing words, APC will be in power in Oyo State come 2023.
“I won’t go into details more than this but I tell you, we are putting finishing touches to the process to make it a reality.
“In the next couple of days, you will see new faces and new movements amongst us, welcome them with open hands, make them comfortable, it is part of the process.
“Don’t fight anybody, let the process go on smoothly, don’t feel intimidated by their coming. Let us gladly receive them into the APC fold.
‘Since the PDP does not appreciate being in power, we will take it away from them.
“You know we operate an all-encompassing and open-door policy.
“And bring the ruling party at the National level, the best thing for us as a state is to make sure Oyo State is also an APC state and this will soon become a reality,” Alao-Akala said.
