“So, we have a body of experience to go about and the whole idea is to sustain the values and the ideals of our party, which is based on transparent elections on the basis of one man, one vote and joining forces with the party leadership in the state, to work hard, to mobilise people of Osun state to vote wisely for the APC candidate in the next governorship election that is scheduled to take place on 22nd September 2018.

“As a governing party, Nigerians resolved in our favour that the APC should not only preside at the centre. They have expressed so much trust and confidence in our party, that on our party’s platform, 24 governors were elected.

“The importance of Osun is readily appreciated by all of us. First, it is a state we had taken over from the PDP, we defeated the sitting governor at that time.”

Speaking, Ganduje thanked Oshiomhole and the party for the appointments.

His words: “There is no doubt that this is a very powerful council looking at the membership composition – Governors, senators and experienced party men. Also, the task ahead of us is very important.

“Mr Chairman, what you have done is to match the quality of the council with the importance of assignment.

“There is no doubt that winning Osun state is very vital to the party. It has been our state in APC for the last 8 years and by the will of God, we will maintain this state in order to have 100% states of the southwestern part of this country in our great party. As progressives, we assure you we will ensure a clean, free and fair election because that is the motive of the APC.

“What we intend to do is to mobilize our people. We are even very lucky that the primaries conducted succeeded in mobilising the people, in energizing the people, in giving our members hope in Osun state so that we continue with that mobilization until the election day when certainly we will win this election.

“Luckily enough the governor of Osun is a man of the people, he provided the dividend of democracy. He is the man who relates with all strata of the society in Osun.

“So he is a man that is loved by the people. So all that is required now is for us to sit together to ensure there is total reconciliation among those who contested the primaries.

“This is very important to give a sense of belonging so everyone will participate in the electioneering and in the election and also mobilize all the stakeholders to ensure we work in unity.”
