Osoba had early this month upon his arrival from London, met with his supporters and for the first time since the APC in the state conducted parallel congresses, opened up on the crisis in the ruling party.

The former governor had also used the occasion to clear the air about certain allegations leveled against him by Governor Ibikunle Amosun and his supporters.

The parallel congresses had produced two State Executive Committees of the party with either of them loyal to the governor and Osoba, respectively.

Vanguard gathered that during today’s consultative meeting, Osoba, other party leaders and his supporters would review the last APC National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting in Abuja where the issue of the parallel congresses conducted in the state was discussed.

The Osoba group is also expected to reach a consensus today on the next line of action pending the action of the committee set up by the APC NEC to look into the parallel congresses conducted by the party in the state.

The consultative meeting is also expected to serve as a platform for the APC leader to react to recent claims by Governor Amosun that he had done so much to please him.

The State Publicity Secretary of the Osoba faction of the APC, Clement Adeniyi confirmed today’s consultative meeting with the frmer governor.
