Former Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday took the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship campaign to the party’s House of Representatives caucus, explaining why he’s the man that fits the position.
Oshiomhole, who recently declared his interest for the position told the lawmakers that he has what it takes to put the party in a right perspective.
The former Edo governor, who promised to address the gap between the executive and legislature, if he emerged the Chairman, added that he would do better if made to head the party.
Accompanied by Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shuiabu, and other APC leaders from the state, Oshiomhole explained that he would achieved his promises by developing
“appropriate tools and identify people with the experience and the connection to be able to bring to effect the principle of separation of powers.”
Revealing that not too many people are impressed with the way the APC has been managed since its inception in 2014, the former Governor noted that most of the crisis presently rocking the ruling party could have been nipped in the bud, if there had been a more proactive approach by the APC national leadership.
He said: “I am aware of the problems that confront our party. The bigger the party, the higher the likelihood of problems arising. So I am not surprised by the amount of division and uneasiness in any quarters within the party.
“I am convinced that given the opportunity, I can offer a proactive leadership to resolve everything in a win situation.”
