His words “The video clip to the effect that I was a member of the State Congress Committee, I am not a member of the State Congress Committee and I did not play any role to the build up of the State Congress and to that extent, therefore, I don’t think that whatever accusations that that video clip throws up or vitiate the moral blanket and the moral template of this Committee”.
Obihagbon also disclosed that the Committee didn’t receive any petition and that the only thing left for them to do is right their report.
He said “we have sat for two days now and know person or persons have approached this State Congress appeal Committee with any petition, behind the circumstance of the view that the Ogun State APC political class are satisfied that the State Congress that took place on the 16th of October, 2021 was in substantial compliance with both the constitution of APC, the extant regulations rolled out by the technical Extraordinary Convention planning Committee and of course with the clear provisions of the constitution of the Federal republic of Nigeria.
“What is left for us now is to right our report and submit to the caretaker extraordinary and convention planning committee of the APC that we intend to do and very timely so that we too can meet the requisite timeline for this assignment”.
