The national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has called on Governor Muhammed Abubakar of Bauchi state to woo all aggrieved members of the party back to the party.
Oshiomhole, represented by Senator Lawal Shuaibu, made the call on Monday, July 23, in Bauchi while distributing empowerment materials purchased by the governor under his Empowerment Programme.
He said that there was a need for all aggrieved members of the party in the state to dialogue to settle their differences.

He commended the governor for rewarding hard working members of the party who at one time or the other worked for the party.
”I am happy that the down trodden, especially youths and women, are the major beneficiaries. In politics, you don’t look at those on the top echelon of the hierarchy but the down trodden who may woo more members into the party,” the chairman said.
He commended the governor for the gesture and urged his counterparts in APC ruling states to emulate him.
Oshiomhole told the gathering that President Muhammadu Buhari had the people of the state at heart and urged them to “in the spirit of give and take resolve your differences.”
Abubakar earlier said that the gesture was to reward local government executives of the party who assisted the party. He said that the items would enable the beneficiaries to become self-reliant.
