Oshiomole, state party chairmen to pay Buhari visit

National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomole is set to lead states party chairmen on a courtesy visit to president Muhammadu Buhari in a bid to consolidate on the party’s unity amidst emerging crises in some states.

The visit is coming a day after governors elected on the platform of the party met behind closed doors with the President.

The APC is currently battling with crises in Edo, Bayelsa , Anambra, Edo and Ondo states.

It would also be recalled that Buhari urged all members to unite at the party’s National Executive Committee meeting last month.

The Secretary of the Forum of APC State Chairmen and Enugu state chairman of the party, Dr Ben Nwoye, confirmed the scheduled meeting with the President.

“Yes, the national chairman is leading us tomorrow to the President on a courtesy visit,” he said.

Nwoye rebuffed the notion that the said the meeting had to do with the call by some aggrieved members for the resignation of the national chairman.

According to him, Oshiomhole enjoys overwhelming support of the state chairmen, adding that the call smacked of irresponsible politicking.

Recall that some members of NEC of the party including a few state chairmen and non-National Working Committee members recently called for the resignation of the former Edo governor for alleged highhandedness in running the party.

Nwoye however said, “An overwhelming majority of the state chairmen have their unalloyed support for the leadership of Adams Oshiomhole, it is unwavering. We believe anyone talking about changing leadership at this time does not mean well for the party.
