The factional Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Ogun State Chapter, Chief Derin Adebiyi in the camp of former Governor Ibikunle Amosun has led hundreds of political loyalists of Amosun to join mainstream of the party led by Governor Dapo Abiodun.

Penpushing reports that Adebiyi and others from all the twenty local government areas of the state took the decision on Friday when they were received by the Governor and leadership of the party in the state.

The leader of the returnees, in his remarks at the Presidential Lodge, Abeokuta, where they were received into the fold declared that  they have all agreed to return to the mainstream to contribute to the development of the party and the state in general, and thanked the Governor and the party members for welcoming them back.

Penpushing further reports that the Governor while receiving the returnees commended them for their loyalty and steadfastness in what they believed in, stressing that, that was a culture that they must promote and entrench in the party

‘I want to congratulate your sense of loyalty to leadership, which I will say is not only commendable but also enviable. This is a culture that we must promote and entrench. It is a culture that is fast eroding, a culture that we are losing fast. Loyalty is 100 per cent’, Abiodun said.

‘For some, they move once things are not working well, but for you, you stay put. This sense of loyalty is worthy of emulation. We must appreciate the fact that there can only be one leader in a party at a time’, he added.

‘Even when we have ambitions and desires, we must subordinate ourselves 100% to leadership and believe that it is in that subordination that will allow us to flourish and achieve our objectives, our dreams, our desires, and our aspirations, not by forming factions or by breaking away’, Abiodun emphasised.

‘Because by doing so, it only weakens the fabric of that collective union that we call our party. You must appreciate that there can be only one leader of the party at a time in the state, and that leader is the governor. As the leader of the party, I appreciate the task bestowed on me, and it is my duty to work towards the individual and collective welfare of our members’, he emphasized.

Penpushing also reports that Abiodun called on party members to put the past behind them and work towards repositioning the party to achieve its aims and work for the socio-economic development of the state.

‘Let us put the past behind us. Let us promote what unites us as a family. I welcome you back. The future of Ogun State is in your hands, and it is ours to take. The same joy the father of the prodigal son received his lost son back home, the same way I receive you today.

‘To those who did not leave, please let us receive our brothers and sisters back. To those who are joining us, please let us display a sense of loyalty. I can assure you, you will be fully integrated’, the Governor stated


Penpushing reports that the Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Yemi Sanusi, in his own remarks pointed out that  in every human relationship, there is bound to be disagreement, explaining that even in times of war, there is always a place for peaceful settlement of conflict, calling on the returnees to fully integrate themselves with other members of the party.
