Oshiomhole accepts dissolution of NWC, speaks of achievements on his watch


The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, reacted to the dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) on Saturday.

Briefing journalists in Abuja, the ex-chairman said he had formally accepted the dissolution of the party’s NWC under his leadership.

Oshiomhole, however, pledged his loyalty to the ruling party, saying that his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari remained unshaken.

According to him, “the real test of his loyalty is not when things are going smoothly but when things suddenly become rough.

“Of course, we have now been dissolved and I have accepted that dissolution in good faith. 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.”

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

Oshiomhole added that the emergence of Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had helped the executive arm of government to succeed.

His remarks followed the dissolution by the APC National Executive Committee (NEC).

The party’s NEC took the decision at a virtual emergency meeting, based on the recommendations of President Buhari.
