The Deputy Chief of Staff to the Senate President, Hon. Gbenga Makanjuola,has urged members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Omu-Aran, Kwara state to remain loyal and committed to party’s principles and ideals.
Makanjuola, gave the charge while handing over some food items and cash to party members in Omu-Aran. The former member of the House of Representatives also visited and interacted with party members in their respective three wards of Aran, Ihahe and Ifaja ward. Some bags of rice and undisclosed amount of cash was handed over to the APC ward executives for onward distribution to party members in the spirit of Ramadan fast.
He said the charge on party members was borne out of the successes recorded during the party’s last ward and local government congresses.
He said the visit was in continuation of his routine tour of the wards toward sensitising party members on recent events and development. He urged members present to make it a point of duty to appeal to those that are aggrieved to return, saying there was no substitute for APC as the winning party.
“As we await the party National Convention, we need to reflect on the achievement of the last congresses by being more dedicated and committed.
“To me this is the time our loyalty, commitment to party’s principles toward achieving victories in 2019 general elections is most needed.
“Please don’t fight or quarrel with those members who have turned their back on the party.
“It is your duty and responsibility to appeal to them and make them understand that this is the only winning party,” he said.
