The Chairman of the Osun State National Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward Congress, Gbenga Elegbeleye says he is satisfied with the manner the ruling party conducted the congresses held over the weekend, describing it as a huge success.
According to Elegbeleye, the exercise was carried out in line with the guidelines of the party as enshrined in its Constitution.
He made this remark whileaddressing a press conference in Osogbo, Monday, at the state party secretariat.
He added that only candidates who collected nomination forms and passed through the screening process and participated in the congress were declared winners.
He also dismissed rumour that members of the Committee did not meet with stakeholders of the party before the exercise, that those peddling such rumour were on a self-serving motive.
According to him, the Committee met with stakeholders of the APC in the State, including the governor, three former deputy governors, serving members of the National Assembly, Speaker of the State House of Assembly,
He added that since the committee acted on the mandate from the National Secretariat, it is not possible for those who were not eligible could be declared as winners.
“I have the forms of each of the three senatorial districts with me and I am using this opportunity, on behalf of my colleagues in Congress Committee to declare those who were screened as elected representatives and new executive of each of the wards they represent,” he said.
