The lawmaker representing Oluyole Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe has said that the All Progressive Congress (APC) is poised to take back Oyo State from the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023, and restore the legacy of development witnessed under former governor of the state, late Senator Abiola Ajimobi.
Akande-Sadipe stated this during a meeting with the APC National Working Committee members assigned to supervise the registration of party members in Oyo State, which held on Wednesday at the new secretariat of the party in Ibadan.
The lawmaker noted that she was proud of the reconciliation efforts going on within the party in Oyo State.
“The renewed and re-energised APC for the change Oyo needs is here. Yesterday was a day of pride for our dear party.
“We are on track to change the narrative, we have learnt from the lessons of the past. We are builders, will continue the development of the modern Oyo State spearheaded by our leader, late Senator Abiola Ajimobi,” she said.
While welcoming the NWC members to the state, the lawmaker reiterated that Oyo was a first in many things, adding that APC in Oyo State shall make the ongoing registration exercise a success, in order to gain its place of pride back.
Akande-Sadipe added that women would play an important role in the ongoing registration process, emphasising that there should be a fair representation of both men and women.
“We women of APC would play our part in this registration drive, hold our own and prove our worth to the party. The party in turn should take note and ensure that a better male to female ratio is achieved- 50/50 would be nice but 60/40 in 2023 will do,” she added.
