The governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, chaired the meeting.
The meeting took place at MTR Hall located within the Government Reservation Area, GRA, Ibara, Abeokuta. It involved officials and members of all the defunct parties which formed APC. The forum was chaired by the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun. He was accompanied by other top functionaries of the defunct parties.
The meeting provided an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the growth of the newly registered party.
Mr. Amosun, who also served as the chairman of the meeting, said the party should have a register that would contain the list of its members in the state. He said the state chapter of the party should set a standard for others to follow, so that the national leaders of the party will be proud of the chapter.
The Ogun state governor expressed optimism that the APC would lead the country well. He charged all members on the need to play their part positively saying, “We need to make good decisions; APC should be a vehicle that will deliver Nigeria. We must all play our part very well”.
“We should all ensure a strong and united party. We must put heads together on way forward. We must have rancour free APC in Ogun State. We are now one big family, we must now have register to have a list of members and give opportunity for those who may be interested to join us,” Mr. Amosun stated.
The governor said that the chapter’s convention is tentatively coming up in December and that the party would be presented to members of the public on Monday, August 19 in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
“Come Monday 19th in Abeokuta, we will be presenting our party, APC to the general public. We will let them know that Ogun State is home of the progressives. If Baba Awolowo is still alive he would be in APC,” Mr. Amosun stated.
