- Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is now seeking reconciliation after battling opposition forces within the APC
- The APC national chairman says the party is united and not divided
- The former Edo state governor has promised to reconcile all aggrieved individuals in the party
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has declared that the ruling party is not divided.
Oshiomhole made the statement after he resumed his position on Tuesday, March 17 following an Appeal Court ruling reinstating him as the chairman of the party.
The APC has gone through a topsy-turvy moment in the last few weeks.
Factions emerged in the ruling party while chieftains struggled for control of the party machinery.
Oshiomhole while meeting with the party executives at the APC secretariat in Abuja said conflict is natural in a party of their size.
He said the APC is united and not divided and will be used as an instrument for the development of Nigeria.
According to him, parties that are pro-people usually have more challenges than conservative parties.
He further stated that despite the challenges the party has faced, the APC remains strong, admitting that he is not a perfect being but his sincerity of purpose cannot be denied.
The former Edo state governor said he is willing to reconcile his style of leadership with that of other members of the party so they can work together.
He thanked the judiciary for overturning the high court ruling saying internal differences will be settled internally.
On Monday, March 16, Oshiomhole met with the chief of staff to the president, Mallam Abba Kyari, at the presidential villa.
The APC national chairman met with Kyari at the Nigerian seat of power while President Muhammadu Buhari was away at an event in the Nigerian capital.
Forces loyal to Oshiomhole in recent days bounced back and declared their loyalty and support for him.
Recently, the newly sworn-in Imo state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, declared his support for Oshiomhole.
Speaking to journalists on Friday, March 13, in Owerri, the state capital, Governor Uzodinma said those calling for Oshiomhole’s removal will fail.
Similarly, members of the APC National Executive Committee from the south-south zone declared support for Oshiomhole on Sunday, March 15.
The group led by deputy Senate president, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege met in Abuja and passed a vote of confidence on the former Edo state governor.
