Move towards reconciling aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State started on Wednesday, with Chairman of the party, Chief Akin Oke, inaugurating the Chief Adebayo Alao Akala led committee.
It would be recalled that the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, had in March named members of the reconciliation committee.
Inaugurating the committee at party Secretariat, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, Oke tasked the committee members to identify contentious issues in the party and come up with suggestions and recommendations.
With Alao Akala in attendance, he charged the committee to propose a mechanism for resolving internal crises and other relevant issues that would help in genuine reconciliation effort.
He further charged the committee to meet with all aggrieved members of the party including the party’s candidates at the governorship, National Assembly, State House of Assembly and local government.
Speaking on behalf of the committee, Alao-Akala assured of the commitment to the task.

The committee thereafter went into a closed-door meeting.
