Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State loyal to the Minister of Interior and former Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, yesterday, expressed readiness to resolve the crisis rocking the party in the state.

APC lost the recently concluded governorship election in the state to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); a defeat many attributed to the internal crisis in the Osun APC which is factionalised between Aregbesola’s supporters and those of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.

A factional Chairman of the party loyal to Aregbesola, Alhaji Rasaq Salinsile, said Aregbesola met the National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu, for reconciliation before July 16, election but that Oyetola delayed it until the party lost the election.

He said Aregbesola’s supporters under the auspices of The Osun Progressives (TOP) voted for Oyetola in the election as against the claim that they aided the victory of the PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke.

Salinsile said Oyetola and Gboyega Famodun’s responsiveness and impunity on party issues led to total collapse of the APC’s winning structures and the eventual loss of the governorship poll.

But Famodun said Aregbesola and his supporters lacked moral ground to still consider themselves as APC members.

He added that committees had been set up at the ward level to investigate their action and discipline them accordingly.
