The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, July 29, announced the dissolution of the Kwara state chapter’s executive committee led by Balogun Fulani.
The minister of information, Lai Mohammed said the resolution to disband the committee followed a stakeholders’ meeting of the party in Oro, Kwara state.
A statement by the minister said the stakeholders agreed that a fresh congress which will include all APC members in Kwara be conducted.
Mohammed said the party resolved that: “That the Balogun Fulani-led Kwara APC executive committee be immediately dissolved and a fresh congress that will include all Kwara APC members and those who are just coming into the party be held at the various levels to constitute a new executive.
That all those who got appointments by deceit, hiding under the facade of being party men and women, should immediately resign such appointments or be fired.
That the recent gale of defections has now put the APC in a position of true majority in the National Assembly, as those who remain are the ones who are truly committed to the ideals of our great Party.
That all members and supporters of our great party restate their unflinching support for President Muhammadu Buhari and assure him of a harvest of votes from Kwara State in the 2019 General Elections,” Mohammed said.
He also implored all members of the ruling party especially those in Kwara state to remain calm as there is no cause for alarm.
