My kidnapping story is a ruse, says Osun congressional committee chairman
The President of the National Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Osun State District Congress, the Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye announced the arrival of Committee members to the state on Friday, just as he said the news of his kidnapping was a ruse.
Elegbeleye said the committee members had just arrived in the state on Friday, contrary to rumored insinuations that they had been in the state for days.
APC Congress Committee Chairman Ward, who revealed that none of the committee members were kidnapped, said they arrived in Osun late due to logistics and other necessary materials to ensure the smooth running of the process.
He also pledged that the committee would do everything possible to uphold transparency, accountability and fairness before, during and after the convention.
Elegbeleye said this while addressing the people at the Osun State Congress Committee Stakeholder Meeting on Neighborhood Congress held at Government House, Osogbo.
He said the committee would deploy the necessary machinery to conduct a free and fair convention in all 332 wards across the state.
