The embattled Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, during a programme earlier today on Channels Television, Politics Today, begged the Deputy National Secretary of the APC, Victor Giadom, to put God first before his ambition.
Oshiomhole begged him to put the overall interest of the party first.
The suspended APC chairman noted that the likes of Giadom caused the current APC crisis in Rivers State which led to the state not participating in the general elections in 2019.
“I think my brother, Victor Giadom, wants to take our party to the route of Rivers State where they created so many problems that as we speak today, in Rivers we have crisis.
“My plea with them is that they should put God first and put our national party’s interest second and put our democracy deep in their hearts and not try to use any externalities to destabilise our party the way it has been destabilised in Rivers State.
“Everybody knows, including the overall leader of our party, President Muhammadu Buhari, that we ought to resolve issues amicably as provided for within the constitution of our party.”
Oshiomhole noted that it is not possible for the national secretary to assume the position of national chairman because ideally the position is not the next in the line of succession.
He noted that it is only the Deputy National Chairman or Vice-Chairman that could act in his absence.
