Former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has asked the embattled National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to apologise to the party for the alleged shame and embarrassment suffered by the party over what he termed Oshiomhole’s untoward style of leadership that has caused the party to lose some key states formerly under the firm grips and control of the APC.
In a press release on Sunday, Eze also advised the APC national chairman to stop making further mockery of himself in order not to murder what remains of his person and integrity.
It will be recalled that the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) had lost Oyo, Bauchi, Adamawa, Zamfara states during the 2019 general elections, as well as Bayelsa state.
According to the APC chieftain, “With 14 out of 19 state governors elected on the platform of APC endorsing the formal removal of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, as the National Chairman coupled with his rejection by most APC stakeholders in Edo State and entire South-South region, it is obvious that instead of indulging in fruitless propaganda, Oshiomhole should take the honourable option by handing in his resignation.
“While it is obvious that Oshiomhole would not continue in office as national chairman under the present circumstances, the purported query issued to Chief Victor Giadom, the interim Coordinating Officer of APC by Oshiomhole is childish and laughable, because being suspended, he lacks the power to do so”.
Eze commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) for their position relating to the current impasse rocking the party.
“I wish to commend President Muhammadu Buhari for consenting to the emergency NEC meeting knowing that it offers a unique platform to resolve the multifaceted challenges rocking our great party and distracting his administration from realizing the giant vision in infrastructure, especially roads and railway transportation.
“It is for this reason that President Buhari’s wise decision in consenting to this emergence NEC becomes commendable because the meeting will go a long way towards rebuilding and strengthening the party for better electoral outings.
“The President’s action will strengthen the party and make it more vibrant, cohesive and united to face the task of giving valuable pieces of advice to government for better running of government for the good of Nigerians and winning the 2023 general elections”.
