Amidst crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has said that due to the size of the party, it will be strange for it to experience “graveyard peace”.
Oshiomhole who spoke on a television programme yesterday said the APC is prone to controversies because according to him, it is a large party with people from different backgrounds.
“We are a large governing party and it will only be strange if we are having a graveyard peace. People are allowed to grumble and grumbling is allowed. We should move on and find solutions”, he declared.
It would be recalled that last week, the former governor of Edo state was detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) and grilled for nine hours after some governors alleged that he received bribes during the party’s primary elections across the country.
However, the national chairman said aggrieved members of the party were allowed to grumble insisting that the party has moved on and has put in place internal procedures for reconciliation.
“We have finished our primaries and we have submitted names to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and there are internal procedures for reconciliation and we are working on them.
When asked whether the party still has plans to remove Senate President Bukola Saraki, he said, “I think it’s about morality. We just had an election in the US. The democrats won more members in the congress. Without much ado, the leadership of the house changed. This question didn’t have to arise. Saraki belongs to a minority party as it stands today in the senate. The truth about democracy is that it’s a game of numbers. It’s unacceptable that minority provides leadership over majority.”
