APC: Oshiomhole backs down, accepts sack by NEC

APC: Oshiomhole backs down, accepts sack by NEC

Adams-Oshiomhole

The sacked National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, said he has accepted the decision of the National Executive Committee of the party to sack him and the National Working Committee, which he headed.

Oshiomhole said this at a news conference on Saturday in Abuja, where he also eulogised the NWC under him as having performed creditably.

The NEC meeting called by the factional National Chairman of the party, Victor Giadom, which had the backing of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday sacked the NWC headed by Oshiomhole.

The Acting National Chairman of the Oshiomhole faction, Hillard Eta, and the Acting National Secretary, W. Bulama, kicked over the outcome of the NEC meeting, threatening to head to court.

This was presumed to have the backing of Oshiomhole.

However, when the former Edo State Governor spoke on the issue on Saturday, he said: “The APC under my chairmanship has done its best and the results are there.

“Of course we have now been dissolved and I have accepted that dissolution in good faith.

“I’m not going into the question of legality or illegality.

“The bottomline is that the President, who invited me to lead the party and who mobilised all the support for my emergence as chairman, also presided over the meeting where the NWC has now been dissolved.

“Mr. President graciously invited me to run for the office of chairman of the party in 2018, precisely about two years ago.

“The President told me then that if we do not reform the APC, we can as well forget about the party.

“You know that reforms are challenging and it will entail taking difficult decisions.

“Mine has been a life of trouble and I accepted this and I believe I did my best.

“I’m happy that at the end of the day, 2019 elections have come and gone thanks to Nigerian people, our President had more votes in 2019 than we had in 2015.

“We have more members in the Senate and House of Representatives.”

In giving kudos to the NWC, which he headed, Oshiomhole said: “Unlike 2015, we were not able to manage our victory in the two chambers such that we had an APC President in the Senate and PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) Deputy Senate President.

“This time, working hard with my colleagues in the NWC and in consultation of leaders of our party across board, we have the kind of unity expected in the governing party in the two chambers of the National Assembly.

“I’m happy that the leadership of the National Assembly is working harmoniously with Mr. President.”
