Sapele—Chairman of APC United Front, a group in All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa, has described as laughable, calls by Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, to resign as chairman of the party.
Musa, in a statement, said: “The world has seen a more progressive party in APC under Oyegun’s dynamic leadership. Chief Oyegun is not under the influence of a powerful and sinister arm of government. He will never thwart the will of the people.”
He praised the APC national chairman for his strategic roles in internal party governance and in the development and promulgation of party policy.
He said: “The leaders eulogised Oyegun for giving equal rights and opportunities to members of the APC regardless of status, class and affiliation. Oyegun has the leadership quality which goes with creativity, sensitivity, compassion, innovation, courage, vision, character, competence and a very high dosage of patriotism. He is an embodiment of transparency and accountability.”
Musa commended Oyegun for bringing about a more dynamic way of administering the affairs of the party, sacrificing his comfort to work tirelessly for the party and for allowing the wheel of democracy to run constitutionally, adding that “as a man with impeccable record in governance and party politics, Chief Oyegun will never derail from the path of honour.”
