APC Reconciliation: Oyegun Replies Tinubu’s Scathing Letter

2 Min Read

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has replied a scathing letter written by Chairman of the APC Reconciliation Committee, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

In the February 21 letter, Tinubu had accused the APC helmsman of trying to sabotage the mission of reconciling party members which President Muhammadu Buhari entrusted to him.

Tinubu, a National Leader of the party, said, “disappointment greeted me when I discovered that you had swiftly acted in contravention of the spirit of our discussions. Instead of being a bulwark of support as promised, you positioned yourself in active opposition to the goal of resuscitating the progressive and democratic nature of APC.”

Tinubu further accused Oyegun of attempting “to undermine my mandate by engaging in dilatory tactics for the most part. When forced to act, you do so in an arbitrary and capricious manner”.

In the letter, he copied the president, vice-president, senate president and speaker of the house of representatives.

But in a reply on February 23, Oyegun was quoted by TheCable as saying that Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, has his support in reconciling all members of the party across the country.

He said, “I thank you for your letter dated February 21, 2018, for your prayers and good wishes for my health. I wish you the same and pray that our good God keeps you strong and grants you His peace.

“Let me once again formally congratulate you on the peacemaking assignment Mr. President has entrusted you with.

“It is most challenging but I believe you will ultimately justify the confidence reposed in you by Mr President. In this, you have my fullest support.”
