All Progressive Congress (APC) chairmen of the six states in the South South geopolitical zones yesterday backed the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole led national working committee (NWC) of the party.
In a communiqué at the end of an emergency meeting in Abuja, they maintained that those calling for the resignation of Oshiomhole are enemies of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
They urged all aggrieved members of the ruling APC to explore the internal mechanism provided by the party in arriving at amicable solution that would be in the interest of the party.
It noted: “We stand by the leadership of the party under Comrade Oshiomhole and we will resist alleged efforts of fifth columnist to cause disaffection in the party. All those allegedly working for the removal of our national Chairman are not only doing so for selfish reason, but working to cause crisis in our party ahead of the election and we will resist all such moves.”
Noting that the Oshiomhole has been working satisfactorily in repositioning the party, they expressed satisfaction with the conduct and outcome of the Presidential, National Assembly and State House of Assembly Primaries held at the National and state levels.
Enjoining the party’s governors, party leaders and members to support the Oshiomhole led NWC, they thereby passed a vote of confidence in the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
They noted: “The party under the leadership of Comrade Oshiomhole, our National chairman, is on course towards ensuring victory for our party in 2019. That all mechanisms set in place to address disagreements on the outcome of the exercise are in the right direction and well received by us.”
The signatories of the communique comprise Prophet Jones Ode Erue (Delta), Anslem Ojezua (Edo), Hon.Ini Okopido (Akwa Ibom), Hon.Amos Jothan (Bayelsa) and Dr Matthew Achigbe (Cross River).
