Wooing Aggrieved Members Not Cowardice – Oshiomhole


BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – National Chairman of the  All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, says wooing aggrieved party members to remain in the fold is not an act of cowardice.

He said the APC’s leadership gesture to the affected members is about restoring peace and getting justice for all those who deserved it

Comrade Oshiomhole said the Party is not jittery about the r-APC members jumping ship to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that wooing them only shows the strength of character in confronting and addressing its challenges as a political party.

Speaking at the book launch by Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim (APC), representing Yobe East, Oshiomhole said; “Throughout the weekend and up till today (Monday), many of the national dailies reported different stories with the impression that I have not been sleeping within the last one week as a result of alleged mid-night meetings with aggrieved party members, who they say I have been begging not to leave the party.

“In some of the reports, the insinuations even went as far as saying that I made juicy offers to the aggrieved party members in stopping them from defecting. While I will not be too direct in reacting to such reports here, I will only say though I have been meeting aggrieved party members over whatever injustices they felt the party or some chieftains of the party had done to them. I have not been having sleepless nights as being reported, and also I am not in any way jittery.

“Rapprochement move, as far as I am concerned, is not an act of cowardice but a desirous endeavour in making peace since you can’t decree peace but only work for it. So, in a nutshell, I am not ashamed of doing that as chairman of a great party.”

“To those who the rapprochement moves are being directed to, we want them to appreciate that we are more or less trying to prevent them from making a blunder of dumping palm wine for kain kain (local gin)”, The APC Chairman warned  – With NAN report
