The immediate past governor of Osun, Gboyega Oyetola, on Monday inaugurated an 11-man committee to reposition the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
The development was sequel to the loss suffered by the party at the governorship and presidential elections in the state.
A former health minister, Isaac Adewole, heads the committee.
Speaking at the inauguration in Osogbo, Mr Oyetola said the committee had the task of making recommendations for an ethical reward system for party members in the state.
According to him, the committee would review the party’s activities in recent times, considering the aspect of its administration, such as the structure, funding, discipline and reconciliation.
He said the committee would also create a blueprint for the party’s future in the state, propose templates for resolving the existing or future grievances among members and any other matter that could assist the party’s growth and development.
Mr Oyetola stated that the committee had eight weeks to submit its report.
In his remarks, Mr Adewole said his team would propose ideas and strategies to heal the party’s wounds and usher in a new era for APC in Osun.
“We shall create rooms for all, especially the youth, and build a great future for this dynamic party.
“We, the committee members, firmly believe the party will become more potent in the state after this exercise,” he said.
Also speaking at the occasion, the acting APC chairman in the state, Tajudeen Lawal, said the committee was constituted to re-examine the factors that led to the party’s loss in the last elections.
