Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole says he has accepted the decision of the National Executive Committee of the Party, led by acting national chairman Victor Giadom.
While speaking to the press in Abuja on Saturday, the ousted chairman said he accepts the dissolution of the National Working Committee (NWC) constituted by him. He also pledged allegiance to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said his recent experience has taught him that loyalty is more valuable when things are rough.
This decision represents the high-point of an intra-party leadership crisis that nearly destroyed the APC having stemmed from a rivalry between Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state.
The power Tussle led to the suspension of Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the party and the exit of Godwin Obaseki from the APC.
“Of course, we have now been dissolved and I have accepted that dissolution in good fate. I have always assured the President of my loyalty. I know it is easy for people to speak of loyalty when the going is good but loyalty is brought to the test when the going gets really tough,” he said.
He thereafter expressed that the Executive and National Assembly were united under his leadership of the APC through the emergence of Ahmed Lawan as Senate President and Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker, House of Representatives.
