Party chieftain Solomon Edibiri narrates major reasons Comrade Adams Osiomhole is the right man to be named All Progressives Congress National Chairman in this write up made available to societynow.ng
There is no doubt that at a time like this in the history of our Party and our nation Nigeria, there is need to have a tested and proven leader as Chairman of the ruling party to join forces with Mr. President towards consolidating his good works as well as the giant strides he takes daily to reposition our nation over the last three years. One of the ingredients of democracy is constant disagreement amongst individuals and groups in a political party and APC is not immune from such as different kinds of disagreement are bound to exist across the country. Therefore approaching 2019, we need a tested leader to resolve issues, harmonise affairs and unite everyone and groups within our party in order to have an easy ride in the 2019 general elections. This is where the personality of His Excellency, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole comes in handy. Everyone recognises the fact that Comrade Adams possesses unique characters required of the leader to occupy the position of the National Chairman of a big political party as the APC that is in currently undergoing reconciliations and unifications across the length and breath of Nigeria. As a man who appreciate the values of addition and multiplication for a political party to grow, Oshiomole becomes a round peg in a round hole as the National Chairman of our great party.
The need to foster a more united Nigeria cannot also be overemphasised at this critical stage of our nation building where there are so many fragmentations across regions, coupled with threats of insurgency masquerading in different identities across the country. As we crave for the much needed economic stabilisation in our nation Nigeria, we cannot overemphasize the fact that a united nation is needed to achieve the required progress. For a democratic nation like ours, the ruling party thus has so much to do in fostering this unity and economic growth. I believe looking at all the variables, there could never have been a better person to fill the position of the National Chairman at this time other than this distinguished Nigerian. The task ahead 2019 should not be left in the hands of neophytes or political upstarts, we must put a capable hand in the driver’s seat of the APC to silence every opposition in order not take Nigeria back many years. With Adams Oshiomhole’s doggedness, experience in leadership as well as good and sound knowledge of the Nigerian project coupled with President Buhari’s anti corruption stance, I can boldly say we are battle ready for 2019 and nothing but victory can be expected. A lot of persons in APC and thousands of even non partisan Nigerians see Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s coming as the APC National Chairman as a good omen for the party and Nigeria as a nation hence his candidacy has attracted so much support and endorsement across the nation. I thus urge all delegates at the convention come 23rd June, 2018 that for the good of our party and Nigeria our dear country, they should vote massively for Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole as the APC National Chairman. He will change the face of the party and lead it to victory come 2019 and even beyond.
