The senator representing the Ondo North Senatorial District, Ajayi Boroffice, has called on all leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State to embrace unity and peace ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The senator said it was only when there was unity in the party that President Muhammadu Buhari could win the presidential election in the state.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the senator’s media aide, Mr Kayode Fakuyi, on Tuesday, in Akure, the state capital, to commemorate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival.
He said, “In this atmosphere of Eid-el-Kabir, it is imperative to admonish all leaders and members of the APC in Ondo State to come together, build party cohesion and work together for the electoral success of President Muhammadu Buhari and other APC candidates in the 2019 general elections.
“There is no denying the fact that there are many issues that have given leeway to all manners of speculations and postulations about crises and disaffections within the APC in Ondo State.
“ However, it is time for all aggrieved leaders, all dissatisfied members, all factional tendencies and all political groups to drop their grievances and come together as a party to deliver massive victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections.
“It is time for all party men and party women of conscience to be guided by the lessons of history. Recent political history has availed worthy lessons that should guide us to create the future of our party. Party members should be reminded that party cohesion was one of the major factors that triggered the great outing of the APC in the 2015 general elections in Ondo State. Without party cohesion, APC would not have been able to defeat the then ruling party in Ondo State.”
