The  chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state, Hon. Ishola Balogun- Fulani and the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Sunday expressed differences over the latter’s call for the dissolution of the state executive committee of the party.
Mohammed had signed a communiqué where he said that the decision to request for the dissolution of Ishola Balogun- Fulani led executive committee of APC was taken at a stakeholders meeting held in Oro, Irepodun local government of the state of the state on Sunday
ROYAL NEWS gathered that Balogun- Fulani, in a swift reaction said he remained the authentic chairman of the APC in the state and that he and other members of his executive were duly elected for a period of four years.
The APC chairman’s statement reads: “My attention has been drawn to a communiqué purportedly issued by the minister of Information and Culture, Alh Laid Mohammed, calling for the dissolution of the Kwara state executive committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by me.I want to state as follows
“That I remain the authentic chairman of APC in Kwara state. That my executive  committee members were duly elected as APC executives in Kwara state for a period of four years.
“That myself and other members of the Kwara APC executive committee remain members of the party. That only last Wednesday, I attended a meeting of APC States chairmen forum in Abuja.
“That we were not aware of any APC stakeholders meeting in Oro, as neither myself as the state party chairman nor our Kwara south senatorial district chairman, Alhaji Jimoh Balogun convened or attended the meeting.
“We therefore urge members of our great party and general public to remain calm and discountenanced the statement credited to Alh Lai Mohammed.”
The resolution of the stakeholders meeting which communiqué was signed by the minister of Information reads: “That Balogun Fulani-led Kwara APC executive committee be immediately dissolved and a fresh congress that will include all Kwara APC members and those who are just coming into the party be held at the various levels to constitute a new executive.
“That all those who got appointments by deceit, hiding under the facade of being party men and women, should immediately resign such appointments or be fired.
“That the recent gale of defections has now put the APC in a position of true majority in the National Assembly, as those who remain are the ones who are truly committed to the ideals of our great Party
“That all members and supporters of our great party restate their unflinching support for President Muhammadu Buhari and assure him of a harvest of votes from Kwara State in the 2019 general elections.
“That all members should remain calm because there is no cause for alarm.”
