The former governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, has begun moves to reposition the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Oyetola, on Monday, inaugurated an 11-man committee headed by a former Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, for the repositioning of the APC in the state.
While addressing party leaders and loyalists at the inauguration of the committee which held at the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Office, Osogbo, Oyetola said the party must not overlook excesses of those members that created challenges for it in the last governorship and general elections.
Oyetola charged the committee to review activities of the party in recent times, consider the aspect of party administration, make recommendations for an ethical reward system in Osun State, and propose templates for resolving existing or future grievances among party members.
He added, “Before today’s event, I had held a series of meetings with all strata of the party, including the Igbimo Agba, the leadership of the party, critical stakeholders, and the youth, to chart a new course for the APC in Osun. It was the outcome of those meetings that informed the setting up of this committee.
“If the Osun electorate could identify with us despite the intimidation, harassment, violence, and killings perpetrated by the PDP, then, we must brace up to sustain the interest of the Osun people in our party.
“To do that, we must also not gloss over some of the challenges caused by the excesses of some members of the party, some leaders, and elected officials. Hence, the inauguration of this committee.”
