"With the successful completion of the primary process, the APC wishes to announce its readiness to contest and win all available seats in the forthcoming council election.

"The party also released the names of the successful chairmanship candidates with their respective local government areas. Baruteen LGA - ALH Saidu Yaro Musa, Ekiti LGA - Comrade Yinka Dallas, PATIGI LGA - Alh Salihu Jibril Garbi, Edu LGA - Umar Sanda Yusuf, Kaiama LG - Abdulahi Abubakar Bata, Ifelodun LGA - Fatai Adeniyi Garba, Ilorin West LGA - Hajia Aminat Omodara, Ilorin East LGA - Engr Mumeeh Lah, Ilorin South LGA - Hajia Funmi Salau, Asa LGA - Hajia Riskat Opakunle, Moro LGA - Eleyele, Irepodun LGA - Muyiwa Oladipo Kanu, Oke-Ero LGA - Oni Adebayo, Isin LGA - Omole, Oyun LGA - Jalala.

"The party is of the firm belief that our candidates are qualified, competent and highly-resourceful personalities that will drive developmental processes and interventions at the grassroots level.
