He said, “We are aware of all the various inglorious moves by those who are only loyal to their personal interests and ambition than the survival of the party, these crops of party supporters want to take us back to the era of slavery, that we all collectively said O to ge. We refused to be enslaved again. ”

Olusona while warning that the party and the state do not wish to be returned to dark age, said” our collective desire as a people and party  transcends anyone’s political and financial desires.

“We are by this position calling on the national caretaker committee that kwara dissolved exco was a caretaker and this had on several occasions been complained against  via representation of papers immediately after the election because of the  lopsided constitution of the caretaker.

The elders caucus stressed, “for the avoidance of any doubt, our great party’s NEC resolution for dissolved exco  to transform to caretaker automatically should bind on substantive party executives produced by congress only, kwara state party exco was a caretaker committee and can’t be dissolved and sworn in again as a care taker exco.

“We hereby call for fresh constitution of kwara Caretaker committee that will put in place through Congress, a proper state party executive  that will reflect true democracy and guarantee continuous support of APC by Kwarans.

“The national caretaker should also appoint men of honor that will not contest, as caretaker committee members for Kwara State. ”
