The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole says he is willing to reconcile with the leadership style of others in the party to move the party forward.
He made this statement while briefing newsmen before the commencement of the National Working Committee, NWC, meeting of the party on Tuesday.
Oshiomhole said he acknowledged the crisis in the party and he is ready and willing to reconcile with the leadership style of others.
His words: “I do understand events of the last few weeks, particularly arising from our last NWC meeting that was held on the 14th of January and since then, even if we pretend about it, the truth is we have had challenges within our system.
“But as one who has worked from one voluntary organisation, those things are not strange to me. What we would be strange is to have a governing party as large as our party coming from the different background
that we all come from – different aspirations, etcetera, but bonded together by a shared vision of building a party that is based on the principle of socio democracy , pro people, pro poor…one that is committed to ensuring that the instrument of state is used to deliver the greatest good to the greatest number.

“And that is why consciously our party chose to be called All Progressives. This party belongs to all progressives elements in the Nigeria society who wish to join our party.
“What binds us together in this party is a lot more than the sum total of all the challenges that anybody can speak of. When I watch the TV and I’m sure that you do too, and you listen to some commentaries, you will even find some who are not members of our party pronouncing with finality on issues of our party”, he said.
The comrade also added: “So we do not lay claim to a family that has members who will be so docile that they can argue among themselves or even sometimes who really want to fight. That is the hallmark of democracy.
