‘Work in unity for rapid development’
From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
In a bid to ensure rapid development at the grassroots across Osun state, local councils chairmen and councillors have been urged to work in unison.
The state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun state, Prince Gboyega Famodun in a statement issued by his Media Consultant, Mr Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, the state capital said it is important for the grassroots political functionaries to work in unity in discharging their statutory roles.
He stressed that the purpose of running parliamentary system of government would be threatened if what is currently in vogue at some councils is a needless show of strength between the chairmen and the councillors.
Famodun said he was not very comfortable with some information he was gathering from some councils where inordinate ambition of some political functionaries have not been allowing desired developmental projects.
The party chairman informed the chairmen that it is only when they provide developmental projects at the grassroots in their various constituencies that they can collectively be an asset to the state.
He urged them not to be a harbinger of destruction of the purpose for which the parliamentary system of government was introduced at the local level.
“Don’t turn party leaders and youths who were instrumental to your political success into your enemies, as the path to the top and down are not different”, he counselled.
