Hon. Akeem Oluseye (HAO) has called on members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State to approach the 2023 general elections with a common front, stating that the second term ambition of Governor Dapo Abiodun is sacrosanct to the development of the state.
Oluseye in a press statement personally signed by him, a copy made available to this medium noted that the challenges facing the party are temporary and do not define its members.

The statement reads: “As 2023 General election is fast approaching, it is important for all dedicated members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abeokuta North Local Government and Ogun State at large to come to the aid of the party by using all resources and machineries within our capacity to make the party come out victorious.
“It is an open secret that the party is going through a lot of challenges in Abeokuta North and other local government areas in the state. However, these challenges are temporary and do not define us.

“To all other members of our great party who have spent their fortune for the progress of the party in the state but whose efforts have not been rewarded, I want to say that a time is coming when we shall look at this period in retrospect and give thanks to the most high for the stormy waters we have waded through and the triumph we have recorded over the challenges that look so huge and gargantuan today.
