The lingering crisis in the Kwara state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been described as just a political struggle between two factions, according to some members of the party.
The Senator representing Kwara South senatorial district, Arc. Lola Ashiru also described the crisis as and reconcilable one.
He added that the crisis was between the Minister of Information and Culture, Alh Lai Mohammed and the state Governor.
The FidelinfoNews gathered that the assertion was made at the launch of a book titled ‘Twenty-one political lies in Nigeria,’ authored by Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo, an APC chieftain in the state.
Ashiru Said “There is nothing irreconcilable in the differences. I have been in this game for so many years. We have had worst times than this. As far as I am concerned, this is the most temperate time for us.
“The difference is that there is a struggle to control the party between government and APC executives.
“One way or the other, somebody must win. So, this time around government won. We had been in this position so many times in the past. I am very sure with the spirit of sportsmanship, the spirit of belief in the society, we will always win”.
The book’s author, Akogun Oyedepo said, the book written to exposing claims whose time has expired.
“I write to create consciousness of different views: economics, social and political. I write to create issues based on politics instead of these prebendal lies served on the people to place politicians in power.
“With sensitisation, mobilisation and organisation, the bubbles of lies will burst and servant leaders will emerge to serve our people at all levels of government in Nigeria,” he said.
