Avoid what’ll put you in opposition, Oyinlola tells APC members

From Tony Osauzo,Benin
THE Chairman of the fact-find­ing and reconciliation com­mittee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Edo State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has advised stakeholders in the state to avoid anything that would put them in the opposi­tion political party.
Prince Oyinlola, former governor of Osun State who gave the advice while address­ing Edo APC governorship aspi­rants and other stakeholders of the party in Benin at the week­end, told them that being in the opposition was not a pleas­ant thing.
He assured the aspirants that the party would provide a level playing ground and urged the party’s leadership to resolve their differences.
He explained that the APC won last year’s election because of a transparent party prima­ries that saw the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as the party’s flag bearer.
“My belief until I came was   that nobody has done anything that will surpass the achieve­ment of Dr. Ogbemudia. We have a performing governor who has done so much credit to our party, why then do we not want to con­tinue with this trend of achieve­ment by going into the election united and deliver Edo State.
“It is the only state that is under our control in the South South zone. It is an open se­cret that governors in the South South have gone to do meeting on how to take Edo. God will not allow that to happen. We have in­teracted with the aspirants. They came out with what they be­lieved is needed to be done for us to move successfully. All of them are talking about a level playing ground.
“We must allow a level play­ing ground. That is what is going to happen. God forbid; we should not lose election in Edo State. It is not a pleasant thing to be in op­position.
That is why I want to plead with our leadership that we must be able to resolve our differences” , Prince Oyinlola said.
