The Chairman of the Elders Caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Senator Nimbe Farukanmi, has warned that former Deputy Governor Alli Olanusi and his group could be sanctioned if they do not desist from seeming anti-party activities.
He wondered why an elder like Olanusi assembled aggrieved party members to propagate falsehood because he could not have his way with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
Farukanmi said the recent call by the Olanusi-led group was a wicked device to further cause disaffection and damage to the party.
He said: “It is unfortunate that Alhaji Olanusi and his group decided to revert to fanning the embers of disunity with outright lies and a wicked call for the dissolution of the state executive of the party at a time APC is talking about reconciliation.
“You will recall that most of the people in that group did not work for the APC during the last governorship election, yet the party won. It is, therefore, funny to hear them say that they control over 80 per cent of the party’s strength in Ondo State.”
He advised members of the estranged group to retrace their steps and work with the reconciliation committee set up by APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) to air whatever grievances they have against the party.
He affirmed the confidence and belief of the Ondo State APC in the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Executive Committee (NEC), led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the state by Governor Akeredolu.
