There are indications that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is seeking to suppress the calls for the resignation of  Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman to avoid divisions ahead of the June 9 National Assembly elections.

Party leaders across geopolitical zones were said to be reaching out to one another on the need to get aggrieved party members to “sheath their swords” in order not to give the opposition room to spring a surprise on the floors of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

A member of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), who confided in The Punch, stated that, “We all agree that mistakes were made during the primaries leading up to the recently concluded 2019 general elections.

“We also agree that there is a need for us to come together and forge a way forward and that the letter, recently written by one of us, spoke the minds of some and angered some others because it was leaked to the press.

“However, we have National Assembly leadership elections in a little over one week and as a party, we cannot afford to lose these elections. In order to succeed, we must work as a team and present a common front.”

The source added, “The predominant view at the moment is that we cannot afford a distraction which a struggle for a change in the party’s leadership will certainly bring at this time.

“I cannot predict what may follow after the National Assembly leadership election matter is settled because whether you like it or not, we have lost three APC votes from Zamfara in the Senate.”
