The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun state, Prince Gboyega Famodun has described the Oranmiyan Group, a socio-cultural organization, as an utilitarian body that birthed many political organizations and also acknowledging the group’s support to the APC during electioneering period in the state.

Famodun made this known while playing host to the leadership of the Oranmiyan group in his residence in Osogbo, Osun state capital, on Saturday.

The APC chairman, who was excited by the visit of the leadership of the the socio-cultural organization, described the group as an important political organisation, saying it was a stepping stone to where they (as a political party) are presently.

He noted that the group had played many critical roles in the previous elections in terms of mobilization and sensitisation of the electorate.

Famodun said: ” I am very happy to welcome you to this meeting. And I really appreciate the new leadership of Oranmiyan Group for deeming it necessary to pay me a visit. I think this shows that you are ready to work with us.

“I am aware that there is change in the leadership of Oranmiyan but I like the way you make it formal. The roles the Oranmiyan Group had played in previous elections in terms of mobilisation and others cannot be underestimated.

“Unlike before, where there was a distance between the party and the Oranmiyan, I want to urge you on the need to work with us.

” There must be synergy between the party and Oranmiyan because Oranmiyan is a stepping stone to where we are now.

“We really appreciate all other political groups under the canopy of APC. They are doing superbly well. There is no way the party can achieve without the support of all other political groups.

” So there is the need for the party to accommodate the groups, they are very important and we recognized your roles.”

He therefore vowed to give the group (Oranmiyan) the needed support to be able to fudge ahead in its bid to ensure APC victory in the coming general elections.

Earlier, the Director General of the Oranmiyan Group, Mr Olajide Sadiq, had sought the support of the party in their bid to carry out their functions.

Sadiq who noted that the group embarked on familiarisation visit so as to create cordial relationship between Oranmiyan group and the party.

He however used the opportunity to formally inform the Chairman about the group’s plans to begin it’s door to door campaign across the state.
