The respected northern traditional ruler further asserted that Oshiomhole has all it takes to lead the party to victory come 2019.
Oshiomhole was accompanied to the palace by the secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, and director-general of the President Muhammadu Buhari presidential campaign, Rotimi Amaechi, and several other National Assembly members.
The delegation were in Adamawa for the flag-off of the governorship campaign of Governor Muhammed Jibrilla Bindow.
The royal father who commended Oshiomhole for his leadership role so far as chairman of the APC, stated that criticisms in some quarters against the national chairman of the APC was an indication that he is taking the right steps in reshaping the APC.
His words: “I thank you Mr Chairman for paying me this courtesy visit. Since you became chairman things are going properly in the party. In Nigeria there are complains everywhere but in such situation you will find out that the person they are complaining about is doing wonderfully well. And this is the man (Oshiomhole).
“He is doing very well for the party and APC is lucky to have him. God will continue to guide and protect you. You are leading the party towards the right direction and God will be with you."
Oshiomhole who spoke earlier, expressed his gratitude to the royal father for all his support to Governor Bindow in the state and appealed for continuous support for both the governor and President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming general elections.
Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in the Adamawa state chapter of the APC ahead of the 2019 general elections as a chieftain of the party, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has vowed never to campaign for the state governor, Jibrilla Bindow.
Ribadu, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was recently appointed as the director, fields operations in the Buhari campaign council.
