A former Minority whip in the 7th House of Representatives, Hon. Samson Osagie, has described as mischievous, the purported call by some elements for the resignation of the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
The APC chieftain said Mr. Oyegun has done nothing to warrant calls for his resignation.
He said those promoting the idea albeit clandestinely, are out to destroy the party and set it on the party of ignominy, which the PDP has threaded over the years.
“It’s significant to know that the APC cannot afford to be tampering with its leadership like the PDP as this will not make for stability”.
Osagie called on all those nursing the idea to embrace the conflict resolution mechanism of the party to resolve all issues so that the party can support the new government it has formed to deliver on its mandate to the Nigerian people.
“Chief Oyegun is a humble gentle man committed to the ideals of the change mantra of the APC who must not be rubbished by elements with vaunting ambition.
“As Nigerians we need an enduring democratic culture where all interest will coexist and be subject to national interest.
“Chief Oyegun has been a consistent progressive politician who will not do anything to dent his image.
“I urge them to thread with utmost caution so that we can work together to bring about the change Nigerians are expecting from the new government”.
