- Oshiomhole has again accepted his faith after the NWC he used to head was sacked by the APC's NEC
- The former national chairman of the ruling party said on Saturday that he had accepted the NEC's decision
- The ex-Labour leader also assured Nigeria's ruler Muhammadu Buhari of unflinching support even in the face of the party's crisis
The immediate past national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has accepted the sacking of the party's National Working Committee (NWC).
Channels Television reported on Saturday, June 27 that Oshiomhole said he was all right with the decision of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led National Executive Council (NEC) to dissolve the NWC.
The former Edo state governor made his position on the sacking of the NWC known in a chat with pressmen on Saturday in Abuja.
While many people have faulted the president and NEC's decision, Oshiomhole said he remains loyal to the Nigerian ruler and APC leader.
The former Labour leader said: “Of course, we have now been dissolved and I have accepted that dissolution in good fate. I have always assured the President of my loyalty.
“I know it is easy for people to speak of loyalty when the going is good but loyalty is brought to the test when the going gets really tough.”
Legit.ng notes that Oshiomhole's words came just hours after the sacked NWC also made a U-turn.
There was joy among members of the ruling APC on Friday, June 26 after members of the sacked NWC dropped the idea of challenging their dismissal in court.
A National Executive Council meeting called by ousted self-proclaimed acting chairman, Victor Giadom and overseen by President Muhammadu Buhari, sacked the NWC on Thursday, June 25.
But Mallam Waziri Bulama, the National Secretary of the party in the sacked exco, revealed that the sacked NWC members have decided to put the interest of the party first and above their own.
This, he said, means no going to court or challenging the process that led to their removal.
Bulama linked the lingering crisis rocking the APC to President Buhari’s position on 2023 presidency and some other factors.
Bulama said there are various people and groups in the party with different needs and aspirations.
