One of the aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress in Oyo State, Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku has disclosed the reason why he was absent at the Alao Akala led APC reconciliation meeting held last weekend.
Ajanaku said he was surprised that he was not invited to the meeting.
He said that he had no knowledge of any reconciliation meeting until he heard it in the news.
Ajanaku who spoke on Monday through his media aide, Mr. Adebowale Adeoye, said that he was surprised that the reconciliation committee could sideline him and other stalwarts of the party.
“Ajanaku was never invited to the meeting by the reconciliation committee. The only meeting he was invited to was the one called by the Minister of Sports, Sunday Dare on Friday.
“Dare said that the meeting was called towards strengthening our party in Oyo State. But unfortunately, after contacting some stakeholders, and he (Ajanaku) discovered that some strong stakeholders were not invited and it was not called by reconciliation committee, then he decided not to attend the Friday meeting.
“The Minister that called Friday meeting was also absent at the Saturday meeting called by the so-called reconciliation committee.
“The absence of the key stakeholders at the meeting showed that APC is still in crisis. Ajanaku and other genuine APC stalwarts are ready for genuine reconciliation and not partial reconciliation where some members would be shut or not invited”.
Otunba Ajanaku an aspirant of the federal house of representatives left APC in 2018 during the party primaries.
