About three weeks ago, the Unity Forum of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State constituted a 7-man Selection Committee to select a consensus candidate among the ten aspirants who have expressed their interests in becoming the governor of the State. Immediately the committee members swung into actions by interfacing with the aspirants and examining their blueprints for the State. Thereafter, the committee went into sessions of deliberations to arrive at a consensus choice.
While members of the forum and the general public eagerly await the outcome of the exercise, the social media has been awashed with various conflicting reports about the outcome of the exercise.
To set the records straight, here is what the Secretary of the Selection Committee Professor Sola Ehindero has to say:
“The mandate of the committee set up by the UNITY FORUM is to select a CONSENSUS candidate who is credible, loyal and whose track record reflects his or her community and corporate accountability and commitment to self-less service.
After three weeks of non-compromising deliberations and as at today Friday, 27th of March, 2020, the committee is yet to reach a decision on such a candidate and thus yet to prepare a report.While the search continues party members should ignore information from the social media or any outfit regarding the choice of a consensus candidate”.
