Conditions Listed For Adelabu To Rejoin APC As December 15th Approaches


In his attempt to rejoin All Progressives Congress, a political party he dumped a year ago, the Minister of power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has been told to consult the APC chairman of his Ward in Ibadan Southeast local government area of Oyo state.

The Oyo APC made the statement in a reply to Adelabu’s request to rejoin APC in an elaborate ceremony slated for December 15th.

It will be recall, that Adelabu wrote the Oyo APC to notify them of his return to the party after his short sojourn with the Accord party alongside faithful and loyal followers.

In the party reply, Oyo APC advised Adelabu to shift the scheduled date for his defection to get the honor of the state chairman Hon. Isaac Omodewu, who is presently out of the country on a medical trip.

Oyo APC also instructed Adelabu to make it necessary and officially liaise with his APC ward chairman in his local government for proper arrangement according to the party constitution.

The reply message to Adelabu in a letter signed by Alhaji Tajudee. Olanite, Oyo state party secretary reads:


I write formally, on behalf of the State Chairman, to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated December 6, 2023, which was delivered to the Oke-Ado, Ibadan Secretariat of Oyo APC on December 7, 2023, in which you communicated your intention
and plans to return to our great Party as a new member from the Accord Party on which platform you contested the 2023 gubernatorial poll as a candidate.

First and foremost, we use this medium to congratulate you again on your appointment by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR as the Minister of Power and also wish you success in your new Office because Nigeria urgently requires a turnaround in its power sector to drive the economy and also improve the lives of the teeming
population of citizens and residents.

Be that as it may; we are elated to inform you that on behalf of all the stakeholders and supporters of our great Party, the Executive Committees of the APC at all levels in the state welcome your decision to return to the Progressive fold as it is a pointer to the fact that our reconciliation drive has further yielded a positive result even as we expect more relevant political players to toe the same line for us to have a stronger and more formidable Oyo APC.

However, we regret to inform you that the State Chairman is currently on a medical trip to the United States and he will not be back before the December 15, 2023 date which you have picked for the Ceremony. But if the date is deemed sacrosanct, we can assure you that other relevant members of the State Working Committee will be on the ground to receive you as requested.

Finally, as we look forward to a formal face-to-face meeting between you and the State Working Committee at the State Secretariat in Oke-Ado, Ibadan to formalize all necessary arrangements before D-Day, we would like to remind you that it is very necessary for you
inform your Ward Chairman in writing as required by the Constitution of our great Party.

You have an assurance of our esteemed regards always.
