- Adams Oshiomhole says he has forgiven those who wanted him removed as the national chairman of the ruling party
- The embattled APC chairman says he has also been forgiven by those who are 'irritated' by his shortcomings
- Oshiomhole mocked the opposition parties, saying that contrary to their belief APC has put behind its recent crisis
The embattled chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, says he has forgiven those who offended him as the party is set to shuttle behind the crisis it was recently embroiled in.
Legit.ng recalls that the plot to remove the party's national chairman flatly tumbled as an appeal court stayed the execution of the March 4 order of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) high court restraining him from further acting in that capacity.
Addressing journalist at the APC headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday, March 17, after heading the first national working council meeting since his position was put under threats, Oshiomhole said he has put behind the war against him.
The former Edo governor also said contrary to the hope of the opposition that APC would surge into a messy rumble, the party has put its house in order.
"I am sure the oppositions will be so disappointed because I am sure some of them have passed bandage and POP around believing there is going to be fighting and all that.
"What binds us together is stronger than the little issues that caused misunderstanding. I believe that the All Progressive Congress is much more than the total of all intrigues that you hear.
"On my part, I have asked everyone and they have accepted whatever they consider is my own shortcomings. I asked for forgiveness and they have forgiven," Oshiomhole told journalists in Abuja.
Speaking further, the APC chair said he has forgiven people who "irritated him," as he has also been forgiven by those who he offended.
He further stressed that the beauty of the fight is that all warring and aggrieved parties could come together, bury their grouses and move on.
"Whatever I considered to be everyone's shortcomings, that irritated me. I have also forgiven. That is how it should be.
"It can only be abnormal when people know how to fight but don't know how to settle," he emphasised.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that APC said it would meet the health minister, Osagie Ehanire, over the current state of coronavirus in the country.
Nigeria recorded the third case of Covid-19 on Tuesday and there have been calls for border closure as virus hit hard beyond boundaries.
The ruling party, through its national chairman Oshiomhole, said minister appointed by a government elected on its platform must be accountable to it.
