A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara, Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo has cautioned the leadership of the party against another postponement of the National Convention of the party slated for Feb 26.

Oyedepo, who said this in a statement on Monday in Ilorin that postponing the convention again may not augur well for the party.

“I believe that the conventions should not be postponed again; this is because Nigerians will not take APC seriously if the convention is further postponed.

“Postponement of the convention will kill the morale of party members and our supporters throughout the width and breadth of the country.

“In fact, the postponement will be a confirmation that the Gov Buni-led caretaker committee is up to a hidden agenda,” Oyedepo added.

He was of the view that there may be a crisis at the convention because of unfairness and injustice perpetrated by the national caretaker committee.

“I also envisage that there might be a crisis at the convention, the leadership of the party should know the possibility of crisis and to work along the line of ameliorating it.

“The injustice is not in one state, it is virtually in at least, not less than 30 states of the federation where you can get pockets of crises or troubles.

“So if we go into the convention on the 26th of this month, what I think may happen is that some people may not come for the convention believing that they are not part of it.

“Some people may come to watch the proceeding to know how it will go, not necessarily because they wish the party well, but they want to see how the party will crash.

“Some people may want to go there to foment trouble and show their indignation against a party that cannot take care of their interest.

“These are things that I think may happen at that convention,” Akogun added.
It may be recalled that the convention that was initially scheduled for October 2021 was shifted to Feb. 26.
