Adams Oshiomhole: briefing newsmen in Abuja

Suspended National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has finally spoken out on dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee, (NWC).

The ex-chairman, who spoke with journalists on Saturday in Abuja, said he has formally accepted the dissolution of the party’s NWC under his leadership.

Oshiomhole, however, pledged his loyalty to the ruling party.

He added that his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari remains intact.

He said: “Of course, we have now been dissolved and I have accepted that dissolution in good fate. I have always assured the President of my loyalty.

“I know it is easy for people to speak of loyalty when the going is good but loyalty is brought to the test when the going gets really tough.”

Oshiomhole also stated that he was happy with what he achieved during his time in office.

He said APC under his leadership was able to work hard to ensure that unity returned to the Ninth Assembly.

He stated that part of his achievements was the emergence of Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, who has helped the executive arm of government to succeed.

Adams Oshiomhole was kicked out of the APC chairmanship on Thursday.

All the other NWC members also lost their positions and replaced by a caretaker committee.

The decisions were taken at the emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the party, chaired by President Buhari.

Meanwhile, Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, has been appointed as the chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Governor Buni was sworn in by the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami.

Similarly, Senator John Akpan Udo-Edehe was appointed as the secretary of the caretaker committee.


  1. Oshiomole’s loyalty is only about saving himself from prosecutions.

    This is a man who came to power on the backdrop of being a labour leader and people oriented but ended up looting Edo’s treasury dry.

    If Oshiomole wasn’t a treasury looter, he would have stood tall and challenge Buhari’s illegal dissolution of APC’s NWC.

    One of the disadvantages of having stained hands whilst in office is it never allowed you the privilege of challenging certain misgivings and atrocious disposition of your superiors.

    Oshiomole’s hands are tied owing to his gross misconduct whilst in office, in the same token Tinubu’s hands are tied up and his neck is already in Buhari’s noose,

    If Tinubu hadn’t misjudged the political consequences of moving 2 bullion vans publicly on the eve of the last presidential election, Buhari wouldn’t be having a field day in APC as he is doing unchallenged and unhinged.

    What an incredibly insensitive and myopic lawless leadership APC has thrown up.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  2. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now Obaseki can arrest you for your kleptomania of Edo people’s money.Ugly being.

    • And what will happen to the same Obaseki who is shamelessly doling out state funds to PDP Tax collectors, if you doubt go and ask Wike. Animal
