Other members of the forum included former Deputy Governor, Otunba Alake Adeyemo, Main Abu Gbadamosi, Alhaji Fatsi Ibikunle, Professor Adeolu Akande, former Province Deputy Chairman of the political party, Alhaji Isiaka Alimi and former Vice Chairman of the political party, Main Goke Oyetunji.
Shittu, who spoke on behalf of the forum, added that the grouping was not consulted before such commitee members were appointed.
The former Government minister in a telephone conversation with DAILY POST quarta-feira nighttime, maintained that the forum rejected the commitee.
He added that the forum was not consulted when the commission was allegedly constituted.
He spoke farther by saying that the commitee intended to impose itself on the political party.
Shittu alleged that the commission has at to the lowest degree 5 known supporters of a serving senator and gubernatorial aspirant.
“On quarta-feira September 29,2021 a three-man delegation of the Unity Forum met with Governor Akala on the demand for a single province congress. Governor Akala agreed on the demand for a critical stakeholders coming together.
“It was agreed that both sides should generate 13 names for the congress. He indeed sent the listing of 13 nominees and consultations were on for the remaining 13 nominees when all of a sudden there was word of the structure of a 9- man zoning commission.
“The commission has at to the lowest degree 5 known supporters of a serving Senator and gubernatorial aspirant, including the Chairman and Secretarial assistant of the commission.
“The listing only had 2 nominees from the Unity Forum fifty-fifty when it is public knowledge that the Unity Forum controls bulk of political party members. To create matters worse, the nominees from Unity Forum were selected by the PDP grouping without recourse to the Unity Forum.
“There is plenty evidence of poor faith in the composition of the 9-man commission. We call up on the leadership of the APC at the national level to be watchful of the PDP elements in the APC who appear hellbent on destroying the progressives political party in Oyo Province.”
