The Minister urged that the APC in Oyo must embrace a more inclusive and collegial mentality while the fragmentation of the party and the unfair treatment of members associated with a rival faction must stop.

He said only a strong unified party can win elections and that the idea of handing the party over to a few individuals, to the detriment of others, would spell doom as the factional elements might win the battle for supremacy in the party but may well lose the greater war which is the general elections.
