The Association of Progressive Political Parties in Osun state (Osun
APPPS), has reiterated her comment made of recent that the umbrella body of
registered political parties does not exist and sedentary in the State of
the virtues. Osun APPPS further described those parading themselves as Osun
IPAC Excos as irresponsible, inactive and impracticable individuals whose
mission is to destroy the umbrella body of registered political parties in
This was contained in a press release issued and signed by Mr. Wole
Adedoyin, the State Chairman of APPPS who is also the Osun State Chairman
of Hope Democratic Party (HDP).
According to the release, part of the allegations levelled against the
current executive of Osun IPAC are: failure of the exco to call for IPAC
General Assembly meeting since the inception of their tenure, failure to
constitute statutory steering committees as enshrined in the Council’s IPAC
Code of Conduct, failure of Osun IPAC leadership to review 2019 general
elections conducted in the state which should be aimed at accessing and
examining the performance of Osun INEC and security agencies in the last
general elections conducted in the state, the report of which should be
given to individual political parties and also made available to IPAC
National body, failure to update the General Assembly on the body’s
activities and programmes attended till date and failure to create
communication and networking platforms e.g. Whatsapp Group and Facebook
Group where members can be updated, share information and news related to
IPAC-INEC activities and events within and outside the state.
The inability of the current IPAC excos in the state to rise to the needs
of registered political parties in the state has caused a lot of setback to
the political party administration and electoral system of the state.
Since the inauguration of this current IPAC administration in the state. It
has been a one man show. A sitting room affair, where an individual and not
IPAC General Body decide what should be done. The oneness and unity among
registered political parties which IPAC is known for is no more there.
Osun APPPS urged High Chief Peter Ameh led IPAC national leadership to beam
his searchlight and investigate the association’s allegations levelled
against the umbrella body of registered political parties in the state.
“Osun IPAC is sick, in comatose. Giving such executive members’ mandate to
run for another term is like drawing water into a basket. No single
activity or accomplishment to show for their achievement. We also urge the
national leadership of IPAC to ask for the chapter’s attendance list of any
meeting they called since their inception in office.” The body said.
Osun APPPS finally urged High Chief Peter Ameh to stop featuring the
current set of IPAC executive in IPAC national events until they do the
needful. Their action so far has contravened IPAC Code of Conduct and
should dearly pay for it.
