The newly-elected Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Mr. Ajiboye Omodewu, has urged leaders and members of the party to join hands with him in order to reclaim the state from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023.

Omodewu, who had earlier served as Commissioner for Lands and Housing during the tenure of the immediate past governor of the state, late Abiola Ajimobi, made this disclosure during his acceptance speech.

Our correspondent gathered that Omodewu emerged as Chairman of the party at the congress held at Obafemi Awolowo Stadium in the Oke-Ado area of Ibadan on Saturday.

The new chairman appealed to leaders and members of the party to work together so as to reclaim the state from Peoples Democratic Party which has been ruling the state since May 2019.

He said that as the chairman of APC in the state, he needed supports and cooperation of co-aspirants, critical stakeholders and members of the party in order to take back the state from PDP in the 2023 general elections.

Omodewu while speaking further commended members of the party for the confidence reposed in him.

He then called for a minute silence in honor of some deceased leaders of the party.

Omodewu said, “All thanks and adoration to Almighty God for making today’s State Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, a successful one.

“Before I proceed with my speech, let’s have one-minute silence in memories of two founding fathers of our great party, His Excellency (Dr.) Lamidi Onaolapo Adesina (Great Lam) and His Excellency (Dr.) Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi (Shehu).
