Immediate past Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Monday, inaugurated an 11-man Committee with the mandate to stimulate, revamp, restructure and reposition the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State.

Inaugurating the Committee in Osogbo, the former governor said Osun remains the home of the Progressives in the South West, hence the need for the APC members in the State to take necessary and decisive steps to reposition the party and make it stronger and more formidable.
