A former chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said he is neither in opposition to his party nor to President Muhammadu Buhari as being reported in the media.

According to Vanguard, Oshiomhole on Sunday, February 28, said his statements about the APC registration and revalidation exercise weeks ago have been misinterpreted to mean he is fighting the leadership of the APC.

He stated that such an interpretation is not reflective of the comments he made about the registration exercise.

The APC chieftain explained that he only advised the APC to use the word update as a better tag for the membership registration exercise, as opposed to the revalidation being used.

He said:

“Even in expressing my reservation about the use of the word ‘revalidation’, I also at the same time acknowledged the necessity to carry out the exercise of updating the register: deleting those who have died or resigned, and register new members.
“In addition, the fact that I left Abuja and traveled all the way to my village in Edo State to again register at my unit and went further to encourage other APC members to do likewise, demonstrates my faith and commitment to the party.''

The former APC chairman noted that he is surprised that his words were taken out of context.

Meanwhile, Ali Modu Sheriff, a former chairman of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has revealed his desire to head the APC.
