ABUJA – Former national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, says he is relevant without holding the office of the national chairman of the party.
“Am still active in all APC activities and I don’t think that I needed to be a chairman to be of relevance.
“I didn’t join the party to become chairman, I joined in order to form an alternative platform capable of kicking PDP out of power and that objective was achieved.
“It doesn’t matter the way things have gone. The primary purpose was not for me to be APC chairman,” Mr Oshiomhole said.
According to Peoples Gazette, the former Edo governor was a guest at a fundraising and investiture for Victoria Unuoarumi as the 10th President of the Rotary Club of Maitama, Abuja.
Speaking at the sideline, Mr Oshiomhole said he had no regrets he was removed as APC chairman. He said though an appeal court had long voided his removal, he has since accepted everything in good faith.
“The court judgement was delivered on July 2, 2020, about two weeks after I was removed from office. I decided to make it public because I saw many commentaries suggesting that people were not aware that the case was dismissed,” he said.
Also, Oshiomhole expressed faith that the 2023 general elections would hold without a hitch.
“I have hope for 2023. God will not forsake a nation of 200 million people in 2023, our democracy has come to stay, although it’s not perfect, a couple of things could be done to strengthen it.
“I believe that God in his infinite mercy will help Nigeria to sustain its democracy and guide us, as we move towards 2023 and the country will go forward.
“I want all of you to realise that I always make this point because Nigeria is much bigger than the total sum of the problems bedevilling it. So I am an optimist,” he said.
