APC crisis: Why I traveled to US – Oshiomhole opens up

By - - [ ]

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has given reason for his recent trip to the United States.

There were reports that Oshiomhole ‘ran away’ to the United States to avoid signing candidate replacement documents.

This was following pressure from some APC states governors for their candidates to be fielded as the flag bearers.

The former Edo State Governor told Daily Trust that he was in US to attend to family issues.

According to him, “We have procedures for replacement of candidates provided for in the Electoral Act, which allows a candidate, if he withdraws, to be substituted by the party.

“And few people have on their own, for various reasons, written to us that they were withdrawing. I don’t need to run away from pressure.

“I think that the minimum requirement for leadership, or the quality of leadership has to be judged substantially by the extent to which one can resist pressure or act under negative circumstances.

“I believe that, in accepting this privilege to be chairman of the APC, being the party in government, there will be pressure.

“What is important is that no one should be able to pressurise one to do what is clearly wrong. Whether wrong with regards to our constitution or in relation to the provision of the Electoral Act or in good conscience.

“So, I don’t need to run away to avoid doing what is wrong. I had to visit a family member who was sick. A purely domestic issue.

“I attended to it, and I came back. It’s just that we live in a country where people like to make allegations even when they don’t make any sense at all.

“Things that sound quite pedestrian, you find people who are otherwise reasonable seemingly giving them hearing.

“I think it was just the invention of the media, and those who have exhausted all the power points and choose to resort to blackmail. But It doesn’t change the truth.”
