By Adeola Badru

IBADAN—A member of the House of Representatives, Abiodun Olasupo has urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, not to labour much on the 2019 elections, but should rather prepare for the 2023 elections.

The lawmaker representing  Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola and Iwajowa Federal Constituency stated that  the intervention of APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu in the internal crisis of the party would give the party the chance to reunite the warring camps.

Olasupo said: “The internal strife in the party is worrisome. Let me not say it is not. It is worrisome and scary but it is a strife that cannot go beyond the capacity of the party leadership to resolve.

“I tell people that 2019 is a forgone conclusion. Let us talk about 2023. Our fear should be 2023, not 2019.

“The reconciliation assignment has been given to the person that can do it, and that is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and he is going to do it. If you meet anybody that really knows about what is going on in Nigerian politics, he will tell you that the crisis you see today is not about 2019 but 2013.”
