2019: We won’t miss Amosun, Okorocha’s political machinery ‘ APC
Sat, 01 Dec 2018

The All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that it will not lose any sleep over the defection of the supporters and political machinery loyal to the governors of Ogun and Imo states, insisting that their departure will not affect the fortune of the party in any manner. The party stated emphatically that “we don’t regret any action we took in the interest of the party that led to their exit. It was in the best interest of democracy.”

The primary elections crisis rocking the APC took a new twist this week when Adekunle Akinlade and Uche Nwosu, anointed governorship choices of the governors of Ogun and Imo states, Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha, respectively, announced their defection from the ruling party to pursue their political ambitions elsewhere. While Akinlade along other Amosun’s supporters moved to Allied Peoples Movement, APM; Nwosu and others crossed to the Democratic People’s Party, DPP.

However, reacting to the development on behalf of the party’s national leadership headed by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu told Saturday Sun that the governors’ men placed individual interest above party and national interest, stressing that the party will react appropriately in due course.

His words: “APC as a party is looking critically at that development and in due course take a position on it. However, in the interim, we will continue to encourage our members not to be driven by selfish ambition but rather to be driven by higher ideals that the party represents.

“The unprecedented achievements the party recorded in the past few years are pointers that members should rise above personal interest. We will also continue to encourage them to think deeply to the larger implications of their actions and inactions.

“We are however mindful of the fact that at the end of the day, the generality of the people are happy with what we have done and what we are doing. We can never regret sticking by the rule of law and operating in accordance with what is good for the interest of the country.

“Let me emphasis that what we have done was for the best interest of the party, government and the generality of people of this country. This has continued to encourage us to be focused. We will however take what happened into consideration and in due course react appropriately,” he said.

On whether the exit will affect the party’s fortunes, he said: “The reality is that as a party, you can’t afford to lose any party member. But we also know that as some are leaving, many others are joining us. Regardless of what happened, I can tell you that the ruling party is very much secure.

“They won’t threaten our chances especially as many more people joining us have continued to see APC as a party standing on solid and higher ground for the generality of the people. That exactly is the comfort.
