Leaders of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Oyo State Chapter, have called for the suspension of the All Progressives Congress (APC’s) membership registration in the state.
This is contained in a statement signed by its former State Leader, Mr Abdur-Raheem Shittu, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ogbomoso.
The group said that members of the defunct CPC in the state were totally excluded from all the membership registration’s preliminary activities.
“Consequently, upon the non-inauguration of the Harmonisation Committee in the state, the APC in Oyo State can be said to be non-existent.
“Thus, each of the legacy parties continue to hold separate meetings at State, Local Government and ward levels,” it said.
The group said that the legacy parties in the state had retained their respective identities, officers and meetings in the state.
It called on the national leadership of the party to suspend the registration exercise and take concrete and immediate steps to rectify all the anomalies and misdeeds.
“If our party is not to be destroyed by well-placed party leaders in the state, our leaders should take concrete and immediate action on these anomalies.
“It is only by so-doing that our party will take the enviable position as home to be accountable, transparent and inclusive in civil, political party governance,” the group said.(NAN)
