August 4, 2014 – At least 14 governors of the All Progressive Congress (APC), their deputies, over 33 Senators and about 135 members of the House of Representatives will storm Osun State between now and Friday for the governorship election slated for Osun State on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
Also expected in the state are all commissioners, special advisers and special assistants including their aides. They are expected to travel to Osun and remain there until the elections are held and results announced, Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said.
He said this was a way of showing the party’s unalloyed support for incumbent Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.
In a statement issued in Osogbo on Monday morning by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the directive also covers all political appointees in states under the control of the APC, especially Special Advisers and Commissioners.
Also expected in Osogbo are members of the party’s national exco and the national elders’ caucus.
APC said it perceives the forthcoming election as a celebration of democracy and a harvest time for the party, whose candidate has worked so hard to implement its mandate and make life more abundant for the people of the state.
The party also called on its members in Osun to be vigilant ahead of the poll, considering the myriad of desperate tactics being perfected by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to reap where it did not sow.
