Yesterday saw the emergence of a splinter faction of the All Progressives Congress which called itself the Reformed APC or the R-APC
Following this, APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has appealed to aggrieved members of the APC to be patient while they fashion an appropriate response.
He spoke to newsmen saying: “My appeal to all those who are aggrieved is to be patient,”
“The assurance is that under my leadership, we will make honest mistakes and once our attention is drawn, we will find courage to make up for our mistake.
“Some people say how can people eat their words? For me, I will eat my words if it is nutritious enough and if that is what I have to do to have peace in the family.”
Oshiomhole also stated appreciation towards those who voted him in, he also stated that he knew what he was getting into when he took on the job and he expressed confidence that things would go well under his leadership.
“So, I appeal to people to realise that a blind man can redeem his eyes if he applies the correct medication, but you can’t force it to open overnight,” he said.
He added; “I pray for wisdom and courage and I believe that we have it and we will deploy it for peace within the APC family,”
