As a concerned indigene of Ogun State, ensuring the greatness and that the State is not eluded of peace is what is paramount in my mind, as I supported and campaigned for Presidential, Ogun and Lagos state gubernatorial candidates of the All Progressives Congress party during the 2015 elections.
There is no gainsaying the fact that the existing All Progressives Congress party members in the state and former party members that had for sometime left to Social Democratic Party that are now back in the party will surely not want to let go for one another, unless we want to pretend that all is well, which will only result into having PEACE OF THE GRAVE YARD and it is the ordinary people that will suffer it and the APC as a party in the long run.
At this point, the responsibility of ensuring peace, removal of suspicion among the above stated various party members and that the party remain one lies on and should be selflessly and sacrificially championed by Aremo Olusegun Osoba to allay the fears of the existing party members, by so doing, it will make them to cooperate willingly without rancour.
WHAT PARTY LEADERSHIP SHOULD DO FOR PEACE TO REIGN
1, Aremo Olusegun Osoba should pay a courtesy visit to His Royal Majesty, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo III, The Alake of Egbaland following as he his back into the party.
2, Aremo Osoba should also pay a courtesy visit to His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr. Sikiru Kayode Adetona, The Awujale of Ijebuland.
3, Aremo Osoba should pay a courtesy visit to His Excellency, The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, where a meeting would be held by Amosun alongside some key existing party chieftains in the state from his side and Aremo Osoba with some key members that had just been re-absorbed into the party to trash out issues of discord seriously for peace to finally reign, ego should be put aside,I know Aremo Osoba is a political leader, this is not to belittle him, but by doing this, he would have actually shown that he is a leader and he his truly and sincerely for peace, as the effect of his visit will be long lasting. (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT).
4, Aremo Osoba will now pay a courtesy call to the APC headquarters in the state, haven done the No (3) suggestion, Governor Amosun will in collaboration with present APC leadership organize Party members across the state up to the ward levels for a meeting with the Aremo Osoba and newly absorbed members from his side at the APC headquarters, where Amosun and Aremo Osoba would be seen together and appeal be made by Governor Amosun to his loyalist to give peace a chance that they are one with the coming of the Party leader Aremo Osoba on board, also Aremo will equally appeal to his people to also give peace a chance.
5, Extensive media coverage of the serial events as suggested should be covered to send a signal to the public that APC in the state is one.
6,Aremo Osoba must not allowed to be arm twisted and pushed by his loyalists against Governor Amosun, likewise Governor Amosun vice versa, because at this stage, no one can have all he desires fully. SACRIFICE, UNDERSTANDING AND MUTUAL RESPECT from both sides are required.
7, After all these, a joint political rally could now be held together which will now have the National leaders of the party in attendance to send a signal that APC is one and that there is no division again, that all had been settled. The rally should not only be held by Aremo Osoba and its people, it must be jointly held, and shouldn’t be a rally of re-absorption but a rally of ONENESS AND A STRONG PARTY THAN BEFORE
1, The visit of Aremo Osoba to Governor Amosun will give Governor Amosun confidence and will enable him to have no choice than to extend hands of fellowship to Aremo Asoba and its people, and wholeheartedly accept Aremo Osoba as the party Leader in the state inspite of what might have happened in the past.
2, It will sent a strong signal that APC is undivided.
3, Make the party stronger.
1, Suggested ideas might not be done with sincere intentions
2, If the issue of absorption is not handled carefully, APC may likely lose the state, as no party is indispensable.
3, National leadership of the party should not interfere in the state affairs, they should let them resolve it as suggested, if the National leadership will interfere, then, they must deal with the two aggrieved parties justly and equitably.
NOTE: AREMO OSOBA HAS A LOT OF ROLE TO PLAY TO CONVINCE EXISTING PARTY MEMBERS THAT HE HIS INDEED A LEADER BY SPEARHEADING THE RECONCILIATION PROCESS AS SUGGESTED, LIKEWISE GOVERNOR AMOSUN SHOULD COOPERATE WITH HIM TO MOVE THE STATE TO A GREATER HEIGHT.
May God Guide our Leaders Right
OGUN STATE IN PARTICULAR SHALL BE GREAT/ PEACEFUL AND NIGERIA IN GENERAL
