Governors of three South-west states of Ondo, Ogun and Osun, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), Dapo Abiodun and Gboyega Oyetola, respectively, have called for the continued re-evaluation of the Constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to reflect its democratic tendencies, where members practice and ensure internal democracy.
The governors stated this at the APC Constitution Review (South West Stakeholders Meeting) held at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, Ogun State yesterday, noting that it was time to tinker with the Constitution to make the party more potent and acceptable to the people.
While emphasising the importance of the review, Akeredolu said rules and regulations guiding a party like the APC must be dynamic and not static.
In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde and made available to newsmen in Akure yesterday, Akeredolu noted that the Constitution of the party must be reviewed for obvious reasons.
He pointed out important areas that should be looked into including the constitution of the Board of Trustees (BOT), mode of primary elections, emergence of delegates among other areas.
Akeredolu disclosed that the governors and other stakeholders of the party in the Southwest had resolved to set up a committee to present the position of the Southwest APC to the Constitution Review committee.
