Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has called on elders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state to reconcile aggrieved members towards building a formidable and virile party.

The governor made the call in Ibadan on Monday while receiving APC elders from the five geopolitical zones of the state in his office.

The elders paid a solidarity visit to the governor shortly after the swearing-in ceremony of the newly-elected council chairmen in the state.

Mr Ajimobi said that recent political events showed that the APC had been widely accepted, urging members of the party to work together to consolidate on the successes.

“History repeats itself everyday. Misunderstanding and disagreements cannot be ruled out of politics, but we must always endeavor to forgive to move on.

“We cannot all be perfect. There is always quarrel, even in the home, and such is amicably resolved in the interest of the family.

“I call on those aggrieved to come back and let’s resolve to move the party forward. I have a large heart and I don’t think evil about anyone. This has been the secret of my successes,” he said.

The governor said he had yet to get any preferred candidate to succeed him, urging all members to work together to strengthen the party.

Mr Abiola Ajimobi had in May last year said he would unveil his successor in May 2018. The governor, who lives office in May 2019, also said he had identified five possible successors.
