.....As Fagbenro Ask Protesters To Face Their Leaders Not Party Executives At The Local Government Level.

Some members of All Progressives Congress, APC in Abeokuta South has protested the alleged substitution of delegates in ward 5, ward 8, and 15 by the local government executive of the party today 16th of May, 2022. 

Abeokuta South has 15 wards in totality, and the directives from the National Secretariat of the party is that all wards should submit 5 delegate lists from the 236 wards in Ogun State towards the forthcoming primary election to determine the candidates of the party across the state and country at large.

The members accused the local government party executives of imposing certain aspirant on the members which is against the party constitution.

According to one of the leaders who was present during the protest, Alhaji Chief Hon Sharafadeen Ogunwolu said: The state executives should wade into the substitution of members of the party's delegate in ward 5, 8 and 15 ahead of the direct primaries to produce the candidates for Assembly and house of representatives of All Progrrssives Congress, APC, saying if their is no dialogue their is no primary election with the substituted members of the party by Hon Henry Fagbenro and his executives.

Amebo Newspapers NG correspondent when visited Hon Fagbenro Henry in his office shortly after the protest, he said all the allegations lack merits, he said the directives from Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun through the state chairman of the party, Yemi Sanusi was to allow the leaders of the 15 wards to select 5 delegates from each wards which they all submitted to the local governments party secretariat for compilation. 

His Words : "If these people want to fight then they should face their ward leaders who nominated five names of members to make the delegate list and not him the local government chairman of the party, because he has no power to choose delegates for those leaders but only to compile the list they all submitted to his office" he said.

Also, he said that everyone knows him for equity and justice in all fairness that he cannot play on their intelligence when it comes to picking of delegates.

He implore the aggrieved members to settle their scores with their leaders instead of transferring the aggression to the leadership of the party at the local government level with allegations which are untrue and baseless to establish their points.

Fagbenro, maintained that he is very busy with the reelection campaign of Prince Dapo Abiodun to continue his tenure in 2023 to enable him complete the transformation projects across the state, saying he will not entertain any distraction from anybody, because he believed welcoming irrelevant protest will distract him from delivering his promises to the party and the local government.
