The Change Advocates of Nigeria (CAN), a non-governmental organization, has passed a vote of confidence on the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for leading the party right.
The development was made public in a statement released by the group’s national coordinator, Comrade Osanieye Ikpomwonba, and made available to journalists, The Nation reports.
The statement read: “We passed a vote of confidence on the National Working Committee of the APC led by its national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and we also challenge them to be above board, ensuring equity, justice and reward to every single member of the party for posterity sake.”
The group advised those calling for Oshiomhole’s resignation to desist; pointing out that the party would be distracted by such moves, from focusing on how to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
The statement read: “We strongly advise those calling for the resignation of the dynamic chairman of our great party, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, to desist from it because such moves will heat up the polity.
“It will also distract the party from focusing on how to reward Nigerians for their full support to the APC-led federal government under the leadership of Mr President.”
CAN, however, said the APC is not against constructive criticism, as such will help move Nigeria forward.
The group said: “The focal point of true party faithful should be how to suggest, initiate, reach out positively, criticize policies and programmes of the government in its drive at taking Nigeria and her people to the next level of democratic tolerance, good governance, accountability, anti- corruption war, improved power distribution and youth empowerment.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that another wave of heat hit the All Progressives Congress as Senator Lawali Shuaibu, the party's deputy national chairman, demanded for the resignation of the party’s national boss, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Addressing Oshiomhole in a six-page letter, Shuaibu opined that in developed nations, leaders who are unable to impact on those they are leading or improve upon antecedent, leave office with honour.
