APC Spokesman, Yekini Nabena, called on President Buhari as the leader of the party to intervene in the current face-off between the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his predecessor, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
He said that as the leader of the party he must seek ways to lead fence-mending efforts and address obvious grievances among stakeholders within the party.
He noted as particularly worrisome the electoral losses by the APC in some states, most recently Zamfara state.
He said, “The losses the APC suffered during the 2019 General Elections in some states which we previously controlled is indeed worrisome.
“However, we are still the governing party which produced the President; control majority states and have an overwhelming majority in the National Assembly.
“Compared to the failed Peoples Democratic PDP, the APC remains the political party of choice for both Nigerians and politicians.
“I urge our aggrieved members to remain in the APC fold and settle their differences. In fact, in a few months, we expect a huge influx from members of the rudderless PDP and other political parties into the APC.
“Elections have been won and lost. High-level meetings such as National Caucus and the National Executive Committee NEC are there to address party matters.
“I call on our respected leaders, particularly the current and immediate-past National Chairmen to end their public hostilities, particularly in the media for the sake of the party and focus on the important task of forming government at the state and federal levels to deliver on our Next Level mandate.
“We need a united house to ensure the growth and strength of our party.
“In the immediate, I call on President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader of our party to lead fence-mending efforts and address obvious grievances in many states and among stakeholders in the party.
“The ongoing war of words between some top leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly the current National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and immediate-past National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun is unnecessary, a distraction and is weakening the governing party.”
