Ajimobi urges speedy completion of FG's projects in S-West”

We must, therefore, renew our resolve to re-enact these qualities in order to bring back the lost glory of our region and reposition it for our people in order that they may enjoy the full benefits of entrusting our party with their destinies.

Some of the south-west APC leaders who attended the meeting include the host governor; Abiola Ajimobi, Akinwunmi Ambode (Lagos), Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), former governors; Adebayo Alao-Akala (Oyo), Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Osun), Olusegun Osoba (Ogun), Adeniyi Adebayo (Ekiti), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), who is serving as minister for solid minerals, Adebayo Shittu, communications minister; a Claudius Daramola, minister of state for Niger Delta; Olusola Adeyeye; Yusuf Lasun, deputy speaker house of representatives, and Femi Gbajabiamila, majority leader of the house of representatives.

The party's National Leader, Senator Bola Tinubu, who was billed to attend, cancelled it at the last minute because of a stomach ache, said Akande, the group's spokesman.

He added, "He has not told us that he is contesting again".

Akande, however, assured that the leaders of the party in the zone will have no option than to support and work for him (Buhari) if he was lucky to have the ticket of the party in 2019.

"It is important to tell our people what we have achieved as we approach the third year, let me say that this is a family meeting".

The governors of Oyo, Lagos, Osun, Ogun and Ekiti states are now attending the All Progressives Congress (APC) Southwest Stakeholders' Forum in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

He said what the South-West leaders of the party were advocating was devolution of powers from the centre to the states and local governments.

"Restructuring is not our language, go and ask those who are advocating (for) restructuring to define it. Restructuring is not in the APC constitution or manifesto", he said.

He said at the moment, party was more concerned about the services the government renders to the people rather than electoral matters. "The decision of this meeting is about how to advise the government to allow the states that have land to practise agriculture and improve on their education".

In his opening address, Ajimobi said the meeting presented a veritable ground for the leaders to reconnect with their political root.

Speaking of the upcoming Osun and Ekiti governorship elections, Mr. Akande said the party is ready to put an end to the reign of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ekiti State particularly.
