The senator representing Kwara South Senatorial district,  Oyelola Ashiru has urged All Progressives Congress ( APC) members in Kwara State to be cautious amidst the raging  crisis in  the party.

Addressing some party faithful across Kwara South, who came to visit him in his Offa residence, Senator Ashiru bemoaned the potential damage the festering could the party and its developmental agenda. He  made an allusion to when two elephants fight, the grass becomes barren; he likened the grass to the party.

He disavowed unending bitter disagreements among leaders in the party.

“When the fight is prolonged,  the party may lose cohesion, unity, strength which might result in the loss of the support of a significant proportion of the populace. This situation foretells a double  electoral gain for the opposition

“The fundamental things that we have achieved as progressives in the current  political dispensation include being able to reinvent ourselves, institutionalising democracy and installing  good governance. But if  we continue to indulge in bitter  intra-party fight, we might lose all these gains and  strengths which will  be calamitous for the people of Kwara State”.

We could recall that the crisis had caused  the removal of the acting state Chairman of the party, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa by the National Executive of the Party led by Governor Mai-Mala Buni, in which some caucus within the party at the state level including the two serving Ministers in the cabinet of the President Muhammadu Buhari are still contesting, Bolarinwa removal said his purported removal was injustice because he was not giving fair hearing on the allegation of working against Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq led administration in the state.
