National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Saturday declared that the party is one of its kind in Nigeria and the whole of Africa. This was as he claimed that APC “is the only progressive party in Nigeria and Africa”.
He spoke at a rally where former Oyo governor, Adebayo Alao-Akala, and other politicians formally moved in to the APC. Other politicians who defected to the party include: a former Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Taofeek Arapaja; a former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Teslim Folarin; a former Secretary to the Oyo State Government, Ayodele Adigun; a former Chairman, Oluyole Local Government Area, Kehinde Olaosebikan; and the only PDP member in the House of Reps from the state, Dokun Odebunmi.
At the rally also attended by the South-West National Vice Chairman of the party, Pius Akinyelure; Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola; and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, Tinubu said the APC has a stainless kitchen and was ready to accommodate many cooks.
“We have a stainless kitchen and we can accommodate as many cooks as possible. We love those bigwigs and we can accommodate them all. You can see that the opposition has finished in Oyo State. Today is important for us because it is the birthday of Governor Abiola Ajimobi – and things that have never happened in the history of Oyo State have started happening.
“I thank God that my friend, Alao-Akala, and the others for seeing the light. All of you who joined the party will also join in building it. The APC house is great for all of us. We are proud of you for joining us. APC is the only progressive party in Nigeria and Africa,” the former Lagos governor said.
