I’m Fully with You, Odigie-Oyegun Replies Tinubu


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress party (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has replied Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over his alleged frustrating efforts to reconcile aggrieved party members, saying he was 100 percent with Tinubu.
Tinubu, in a letter to leaders of the APC, including President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday, had referred to Odidie-Oyegun as a saboteur, who was hindering his efforts in reconciling party members following a presidential assignment.
The eight-page letter, dated February 21, 2018 titled, “Actions and Conduct weakening the party from within,” said the spirit of a new and better Nigeria that guided the party to the unprecedented electoral success had been steadily replaced by “the bankrupt and clueless ways that brought the PDP low.”
Specifically, Tinubu, in the letter, gave insight into what he discussed with the members of the party’s National Working Committee, at a meeting about a week ago and what in specific terms; the party’s national chairman did or was doing to undermine the assignment given to him by Buhari.
He said: “You (Odigie-Oyegun) promised unalloyed support for my mission. Consonant with that vow, you said you would provide all information at your disposal and you vowed to act as liaison between me and the state party chapters.
“Unfortunately, the spirit of understanding and of cooperative undertaking to revive the party seems not to have lived beyond the temporal confines of that meeting.
“I assure anyone who cares to know that this positive spirit of cooperation did not meet its demise at my hands.”
But Odigie-Oyegun on Friday replied him, saying that Tinubu has his full support in the discharge of his duties in resolving the party crisis.
“I thank you for your letter dated February 21, 2018, for your prayers and good wishes for my health.
“I wish you the same and pray that our good God keeps you strong and grants you His peace,” Odigie-Oyegun wrote in the letter dated February 23. “Let me once again formally congratulate you on the peacemaking assignment Mr. President has entrusted you with.
“It is most challenging but I believe you will ultimately justify the confidence reposed in you by Mr President. In this, you have my fullest support”, he wrote.
