The All Progressives Congress (APC), South Africa chapter, said Gov. Oyetola’s defeat in the just-concluded election in Osun, has taught the party a big lesson.

This is contained in a joint statement by the Chapter’s Chairman, Bola Babarinde and the Publicity Secretary, Sanni David.

According to the chapter, APC leadership needs to begin the process of true reconciliation among aggrieved leaders and members nationwide.

The crisis within the party should have been well managed for it to emerge victorious in the election, they said.

The chapter urged Gov. Gboyega Oyetola to use the remaining months of his administration to complete his assignments and projects in the best way.

However, they appealed to APC members in Oyo State to learn from the Osun election and start the process of reconciliation with aggrieved members.

“Oyo APC should learn from this big lesson and disaster in Osun State, and aggressively start the process of reconciliation with all aggrieved members to work for the party’s governorship candidate, Teslim Folarin, for resounding success in 2023.

“Folarin should not leave any stone unturned in gearing up an internal reconciliation mechanism.

“No advice should be taken lightly especially from Diaspora because we have immense contributions towards party success.

“APC should begin to take seriously the reward system of members of our party.

“Most members are aggrieved, dejected, probably the way the party leaders treated them, especially after working so hard for the success of our party.

“This is the right time for our party to look inwards and begin administration of inclusiveness, especially for members in the diaspora.

“We are not competitors, but partners in progress, we have lots to offer in human and resource management, ideological based party structure, foreign direct investment, party sustainability and innovations,” it said.
