Why I attended APC national convention – Buhari’s minister, Shittu

Why I attended APC national convention – Buhari’s minister, Shittu

The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said that if not for his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari, he would have shunned the national congress of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The serving minister vowed that aggrieved members of the APC in Oyo State would not relent until justice prevailed.

Shittu made the remark in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, at the APC Convention venue in Abuja.

The minister has been having a running battle with Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State over who controls the party’s structure in the state.

Ajimobi has reportedly vowed never to support Shittu in his bid to succeed him as governor of the state.

Against the backdrop, the recently-concluded election to elect party’s executives in the state witnessed parallel congresses.

The minister, who said his camp was already in court to seek a redress regarding the state congress election.

“If my loyalty is not 100%, I won’t be here. Nobody forced me to be here. My loyalty is to the president and to the party. Those who are creating problems for us in Oyo State are not the founders of the party. They are not the reason why we are in APC.

“We are in APC as foundation members and by the grace of God, my loyalty is 100% to the party because I believe, at the end of the day, what the temporary executives of the party have not been able to do, the court will do it for us.

“We are already in court. So to that extent, we will have to await the final outcome. There has been disagreement as to the congresses which we held.

“You remember there were parallel congresses. Parallel congresses because those who never bought forms for ward congress eventually are the ones who have been sworn in as the state’s executives of the party.

“Obviously that is injustice by the party. So we, loyal members, who have made effort to build this party, we have taken this disagreement to court and we believe that justice will be done at the end of the day,” he said.
