ABEOKUTA – A faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  in Ogun State loyal to former governor of the state, Chief Segun Osoba yesterday described the plan by Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s faction to inaugurate an executive committee as reckless and suspicious.

The Osoba faction said it  was shocked to hear the announcement made  by one of the Special Assistants  to the governor that,  some  party leaders at the national level would inaugurate its  executive tomorrow when the report of the appeal had not been made public.

Both Osoba and Amosun’s factions elected their executive members during the recently-concluded parallel congresses held in Abeokuta.
But, Amosun’s faction last  Friday commenced  announcement both on radio and television that there was going to be an inauguration of APC Exco at all levels in Ogun State tomorrow by national officers.

In its statement by a factional Ogun State APC Publicity Secretary, Mr. Clement  Adeniyi, titled; “Re: inauguration of exco for Ogun State APC in all 236 wards,  local governments and the state: the truth of the matter,” Osoba faction said it heard with utmost dismay and outright disapproval, a paid announcement of outright misinformation to the generality of APC members and the general public at large.

The faction  copied the State Director,  Directorate of State Security, DSS, Ogun State Headquarters, the Commissioner  Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State Headquarters, Abeokuta, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, INEC, Ogun State Headquarters and the State Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps,  NSCDC, Ogun State Headquarters.

It challenged Amosun’s faction to produce the evidence that it’s  executive had been accepted by the national body, warning it to stop misleading the members of the public.
