Barely 24 hours after the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed called for the dissolution of the Kwara state executive of the All Progressives Congress led by Honourable Balogun Ishola Fulani, the national secretariat of the party last night dissolved the executive of the party at all levels in the North Central state, reports TribuneOnline.
Unlike previous statements signed by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi who incidentally is from Kwara state, the party national working committee released an unsigned statement to disclose dissolution of its Kwara state executive.
The APC national secretariat premised its decision on what it called “unfolding developments within the party in Kwara state, specifically the irregularities that characterized the conduct and outcome of the congresses that produced the leadership of the party at all levels (ward, Local Government and state).”
Tribune Online findings, however, revealed that the Congress that produced Balogun Fulani was accorded recognition by the immediate past national working committee led by Chief Odigie Oyegun.
The party also disclosed that it took the decision in view of the loyalty of the Balogun Fulani led executive to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
The statement announced Honourable Bashir Bolarinwa as chairman of a caretaker committee to administer the state chapter in the north-central state.
The statement read in part: ” The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved the State Executive of the party in Kwara state.
In a resolution signed by the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, the party said a caretaker committee led by Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa shall be appointed to head the state Executive Committee of the party in the state while caretaker committees will be constituted in the wards and Local Government Areas.
“According to the resolution, “ the NWC at its meeting of 30th, July, 2018, examined the unfolding developments within the party in Kwara state, specifically the irregularities that characterized the conduct and outcome of the congresses that produced the leadership of the party at all levels (ward, Local Government and state).
