The National Working Committee, NWC, of the African Action Congress, AAC, has fixed the 1st of June for its primary elections into elective positions.
The Secretary of the Oyo State chapter of the party, Honourable Oluwagbemiwo Adeyemi, made this known while featuring on Pensioners’ FM’s mid-week political programme, “The Searchlight”.
Honourable Adeyemi said the party’s NWC was poised to ensure only people of integrity and competence fly the party’s flag in the 2023.
Honorable Adeyemi also vowed that his party would unseat the current administration in the state, saying the Makinde-led administration has failed in food security and in securing the lives of the people of Oyo State.
He urged Nigerians to vote for credibility in 2023 and avoid money politics.
Speaking on the fate of the party’s 2019 presidential candidate, Mr Omoyele Sowore, who is also the publisher of online newspaper, Sahara Reporters, the Oyo AAC scribe said the party’s Board of Trustees has thrown out Sowore from the party over his alleged impropriety.
He noted that at the moment Sowore is not a member of the AAC.
“When the Board of Trustees of the party asked for the party’s account, the former Secretary, Mr Godwin Ezenwa, gave a straight account but Sowore failed to do the same. So the party’s highest organ kicked him out. He has been going to other parties to seek a presidential ticket but I heard they are also rejecting him over there.”
Honorable Adeyemi also denied speculations that the party has no structure, saying the party just concluded its NWC meeting in Abuja and that it was a fruitful outing.
He said the party would field candidates at both state and national levels in the 2023 general election.
