The executive chairman of Etsako East Local Government Council of Edo State, Alhaji Aremiyau Momoh-Mbakwe, has charged his colleagues and APC faithful across the country to rally round the national chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole.
Aremiyau who in a statement described Oshiomhole as God-sent, expressed satisfaction with his leadership ingenuity, saying he has no doubt such quality is enough to return President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
“Although he met the party at the verge of collapsing due to internal wrangling that eventually led to the defection of some key stakeholders of the party to the opposition, the Oshiomhole led National Working Committee has brought some level of sanity and rule of law to the party.
“He has given the APC a new face and by so doing transfered power to the electorate who had long been denied the voice to elect their representatives at all level. These is rare, particularly in a complex political environment like ours”, the statement reads.
The former Edo State Produce Board Chairman and Executive Director noted that the open direct primaries proposed and recently conducted by the party across most states in Nigerians is step towards not only bringing back power that had long eluded the people to them but was also a measure to deepen the party’s internal democracy.
“I am confidence that Oshiomhole will lead the party to victory in 2019. We saw what he did in Ekiti and Osun, we saw the recent one in Plateau State where APC swept the entire local government councils with ease and this was coming when people thought it was over for APC in that part of the country.
“He will replicate same in 2019 by God’s willing. He has displayed enough expertise in party politics and that is why APC is gradually redeeming its image.
“His ability to unite most of the members of the party in the National Assembly shows that the fortunes of the party is bright in the face of present challenges”, said Aremiyau who appealed to all sundry to put the past behind and work for the interest of the party to maintain its winning ways.
