Contrary to speculations and insinuations, Osun State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied alleged plan by the party to impose a particular aspirant as the Governorship candidate of the party that will fly its flag in the scheduled September 22, 2018 Governorship election.
In a statement personally signed by the Party’s State Chairman, Prince Adegboyega Famodun on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, and made available to SPEAR GISTS in Osogbo, it said that “the public should completely discountenance speculations and rumours spreading in the state that one aspirant or the other is either going to be imposed or has been particularly favoured to be the candidate of the party for the next governorship election in the state.”
It added further that, “Nothing of the sort has happened or is contemplated.
“Currently, party leaders and elders are engaging in a rigorous process of consultation about how to identify the appropriate aspirant, capable of representing the party, preserving its heritage and continuing with the development agenda and programmes of the party.”
He therefore assured that “candidate will eventually emerge through the constitutional process that the party has agreed to.
“The public is hereby reassured that only the best will be presented as a candidate of the party.”
