The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole and the governorship candidates of party met in Abuja behind closed doors where far reaching decisions were taken ahead of the 2019 governorship election.
The meeting, it was learnt, also had in attendance State Chairmen and State Secretaries of the party.
A 7 point resolution was adopted at the meeting.
One of the fallouts of the meeting is “attempts by some party leaders to polarize the party in some States following post primary disputes”
A statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa – Onilu stated that the meeting “ Resolved that party leaders must campaign for all candidates of the party (Presidential, governorhip and legislative positions). A situation where leaders engage in selective support by picking and choosing candidates to campaign for and support was declared anti party”
“Called on governorship candidates to run an issue-based campaign based on the unprecedented achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration which is evident in all the states of the federation.
“Urged the Party’s governorship candidates to run an inclusive campaign by bringing onboard former aspirants. The Party’s governorship and other stakeholders were also encouraged to domesticate ongoing peace and reconciliation efforts undertaken by the National Working Committee (NWC).
“The consultative meeting passed a vote of confidence on the National Working Committee (NWC) led by the National Chairman, H.E. Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole. The NWC was urged to continue its effort to protect the best interest of the Party and pursue efforts to achieve peace and reconciliation in the Party.”
