THERE are strong indications that National Working Committee (NWC) of All Progressives Congress (APC) high command is not pushing for the resignation of its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomohole.
APC Organising Secretary in Adamawa State, Ahmed Lawal, gave the indication yesterday at a news conference in Yola as part of his reaction to the recent call on Oshiomohole to resign by the party’s National Vice Chairman in North-West, Sen. Lawal Shuaibu, saying it was not in the best interest of the party.
Lawal stated that rather than making Oshiomohole a scapegoat, the entire NWC should take the blame for the party’s misfortune, explaining that doing so was natural since all major decisions of the party were taken by members of the its highest decision making organ.
According to him, if Oshiomohole will go then all members of the party’s NWC should go with him, wondering why the National Deputy Chairman would single out Oshiomohole for a collective decision that backfired.
According to him, if Oshiomhole will resign, all members of the NWC should also go.
“There is no justification in calling on Oshiomhole to quit office because major decisions that brought problems to the party were not taken by him alone. If the call is based on poor management of party’s affairs, all members of the NWC should go because all of them took decisions collectively. Calling for Oshiomhole’s head is not the solution but dissolution of the entire national officers,” he said.
