The Imo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has passed a vote of confidence on the Party’s National Adams Oshiomole.
According to a statement signed by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Enyinnaya Onuegbu, he said Imo APC is “miffed but not surprised that the futile and unpopular castigation is coming from the same quarters harbouring disgruntled Anti-Party elements and their sponsors being the hitherto “powerful yesterdays men of power” whose suspension as members of All Progressives Congress is still subsisting.
According to the Spokesman of the party in the State, the vote of confidence came on the heels “of misleading news reportage of calls by some by some anti party elements in our great party casting aspersions on the capacity of His Excellency Comrade Adams Aliu Oshiomole to continue as National Chairman of the party”
The full statement reads:
“The attention of the Leadership and members of All Progressives Congress, Imo State with Chief Marcon Nlemigbo as State Chairman has been drawn to the misleading news reportage of calls by some anti Party elements in our great Party casting aspersions on the capacity of His Excellency Comrade Adams Aliu Oshiomole to continue as National Chairman of the Party.
“We are miffed but not surprised that this futile and unpopular castigation is coming from the same quarters harbouring disgruntled Anti-Party elements and their sponsors being the hitherto “powerful yesterdays men of power” whose suspension as members of All Progressives Congress is still subsisting.
“We must reiterate that only persons who are undemocratic in character would be averse to the discipline, Constitutionalism, due process and democratic credentials His Excellency Comrade Adams Oshiomole has brought to bear in the affairs of our Great Party that hitherto was subject to the whims and caprices of Governors potentates, and their minions.
“The consequences of not towing this ennobling pathway is exemplified by the party primary and pre-election events in Imo and Zamfara States where our party eventually lost the Governorship positions due to emperonic tendencies of the former Governors who sought to play “god”.
“We believe that the National Chairman His Excellency Comrade Adam Aliu Oshiomole has charted a commendable pathway and is on track to achieving a disciplined party and followership. This policy would genuinely enjoy the support of greater majority of Nigerians and add fillip to the popular anti-corruption policies of the Administration of our beloved President His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari GCFR whose uncommon integrity should ordinarily rub off on the persona and public image of his political platform being the All Progressives Congress.
“Consequently, we reiterate our loyalty and solidarity to the National Chairman in his selfless leadership of our All progressives Congress (APC) and enjoin all genuine and loyal party members across the country to continue supporting his administration for a Greater APC.
