IBADAN – Barely four days after the death of the Oyo State leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Alhaji Lamidi Adesina, crisis is already brewing among three factions of the party in Ogbomoso.
The crisis was occasioned by the nomination of Chief Matthew Fasola as the Interim Chairman of Ogbomoso South Local Government by Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
The Executive Committee and the elders of the party in a letter sent to the House of Assembly rejected the nomination of Fasola who was chosen to replace Mr. Isaac Olajide and asked the National Chairman Chief Bisi Akande, and National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to intervene before the crisis assumes an unmanageable proportion.
The party elders based their objection on the ground that the nomination contravened the spirit of generally agreed sharing formula.
They explained that there were three factions of Action Congress of Nigeria in Ogbomoso South at the inception of this administration.
Under the sharing formula of positions, the elders who spoke through Prince Sobaloju Olorode and Chief Ayoade Ayandele, said a faction was given chairmanship of the local government, and the ANPP masquerading as ACN members had six members in the interim committee while PDP who worked for ACN had two members.
