… expresses confidence in the erstwhile Deputy Governor’s capacity to advance party’s cause
The Governor of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, has congratulated a former deputy governor of the State, Senator Iyiola Christopher Omisore, on his emergence as the new National Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Similarly, he has also congratulated the new chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, saying he believes the former governor would bring his wealth of experience to bear in the administration and management of the party’s affairs.
Oyetola who also congratulated other newly elected officers of the party, described the emergence of Omisore as a round peg in a round hole.
He expressed confidence in the ability of the Ife-born politician to deliver and contribute to the growth of the party through his new position.
According to the Governor, Omisore will deploy his political sagacity, leadership qualities and experience which he acquired in public and private sectors, towards  building a virile and healthy party at the centre.
Governor Oyetola spoke shortly after the announcement of Omisore as the newly elected National Secretary of the ruling party at its convention in Abuja, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The former Osun Deputy Governor was returned elected through a consensus arrangement reached by other aspirants who withdrew from the contest.
Recall that the position of the party’s National Secretary was zoned to the Southwest by the party’s national leadership. Consequently, Omisore along three other contenders from the region vied for the position.
Addressing journalists at the Eagle Square, Abuja, the venue of the Convention, Oyetola hailed the leadership quality of President Muhammadu Buhari and praised him for playing a fatherly role to unite the party in the interest of all.
“First of all, I must thank our leaders in the South West for their support for our own Senator Iyiola Omisore. This is a great thing for us in Osun APC and I must thank other contestants for conceding and accepting to withdraw from the race. I commend them for the bold step just as I assure them of our support in their time of need. I have no doubt in the capacity of Otunba Omisore to deliver and take our party to greater level.
“As you can see, the peaceful atmosphere here and the seamless conduct of the convention is a testimony to the strong unity that exists in our party. It is an attestation to the fact that we have our ways of resolving issues without necessarily resorting to conflict.
“Contrary to the negative expectations of some people  the convention went peacefully. The security operatives have done wonderfully well. I am really proud of what had happened today, it is a sign that our party is united, formidable and remained indivisible.
“In achieving all these, I must personally commend the leadership quality provided by President Muhammadu Buhari who always advocate for harmony and peace in the party. It is natural to have disagreement, but what is important is the ability to have workable mechanism to resolve any crisis without necessarily resorting to rancour.
“I am confident that with the existing unity in the APC,  our party will continue to remain in power beyond 2023 by the grace of God,” Oyetola added.
Also speaking, the newly elected APC National Secretary, Senator Omisore expressed gratitude to God, President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Oyetola, party’s leaders and co-contenders for their unflinching support and confidence reposed in him to serve the party. He promised never to disappoint them.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, who also doubles as Chairman of Southern Senators Forum of the 9th Assembly, Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, has said that he would never take the decision of the leadership of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti State to return him back to Senate through an unopposed party ticket for granted.

Senator Bamidele in a statement issued by his media office after he was screened by the APC Senatorial Screening Panel in Abuja pledged to do everything humanly possible to ensure that the party emerged victorious at the forthcoming June 18, 2022, Governorship Elections in the State.

He commended the Screening Committee for proper organisation and conduct of the screening process .

Speaking on his unopposed aspiration in Ekiti Central Senatorial District, he said, “I do not take it for granted that I am being returned unopposed as the Flagbearer of our party in the 2023 Ekiti Central Senatorial elections.

” It means so much to me, I am grateful to the leadership of APC in Ekiti State and grateful to the leadership of the party at the National level. I am also grateful to the people of Ekiti Central Senatorial District for this honor. I don’t take it for granted ar all. That no one is running against me in this race for the ticket of the party is an endorsement of my humble efforts in ensuring effective representation in the Senate in the last three years. It is also an acknowledgment by the leadership of the party and members of the party that I could be entrusted with the position of an elected Representative of the people and one of the leaders of our people in this tough time.

“It is not that we don’t have equally qualified people or eligible people who can obtain the form. But the fact that this has not happened and the leadership of the party has done so much to ensure that I am given a smooth ride to be the candidate of the party, is, to me a sincere and profound effort and from whom to whom much is given, much is also expected.

” It is a call to further and greater duty. I will do everything possible to ensure the unity of the party through meaningful reconciliation where it is still necessary to do so and to ensure to drive a process in which there will be integrity and mutual trust.”

On Ekiti Governorship Election, he said, “Going back home, we have an immediate assignment, which is to go and campaign thoroughly and vigorously to ensure the victory of our party in the June 18 Governorship Election in Ekiti and I believe that is the next assignment I am looking forward to and I will put in my best in this regard by the Grace of God.”
