The Chairman, Senate Committee on Local Content Revalidates , Senator Teslim Folarin has disclosed that the on going membership and revitalisation exercise will boost APC chances in the 2023 general elections
Senator Folarin stated this while speaking shortly after he revalidated his membership of the party at PU 002, Ward 5, Idi Ose, Ona Ara Local Government Area of Oyo State,
According to the Senator representing Oyo Central Senatorial District, the exercise is the boost required to strengthen the party and prepare it fully for total victory in the general elections of 2023.
Senator Folarin emphasized that the exercise has been very successful and that he was impressed with the large turnout of both the old members for revalidation and new ones, particularly youths and women who now daily throng the polling units across the 351 wards of Oyo State for registration.
The APC leader pointed out that the registration and revalidation exercise was well thought out and has achieved a lot in terms of reconciliation, reengineering and solidifying the party preparatory to 2023 .
“It has turned out to be the tonic, the boost needed by our party to get stronger, greater, bigger and I am glad about this.” he said.
Emphasizing the importance of having a strong, cohesive and vibrant party, Senator Folarin declared that the exercise has increased his confidence in the party that come 2023, all the candidates of the All Progressives Party (APC) would win their elections with ease.
“ In Oyo State, APC is obviously the leading party. It is the party to beat. We lost the last gubernatorial election in the state because of the fragmentation in our party. And now with the large number of people enthusiastically joining our party , it is obvious even to the blind that APC is the party to belong to for victory”.
Responding to a question on his governorship ambition come 2023, Senator Folarin said, what was paramount to him now was building the party and making sure that Oyo State benefits maximally from all the good programmes of the Federal Government especially on infrastructure and human capital development as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and a fecund player in governance and politics at the top.
