NASS: We are surprised like every other Nigerian —APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, on Thursday described members of the Reformed APC as hired mercenaries and revealed those behind the group.

Oshiomhole accused those disappointed that the APC national convention was not a failure and did not witness any explosion as they had expected, as masterminds of the R-APC.

According to him, he had been engaging the real stakeholders of the ruling party in a bid to resolve the crisis in APC.

A former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaji Buba Galadima, who is the chairman of R-APC had at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday announced the formation of the faction.

Leader of the nPDP, Alhaji Kawu Baraje was present at the press conference where the announcement was made.

But, Oshiomhole, addressing newsmen at the National Assembly after a meeting with the APC caucus in the House of Representatives, insist that the APC is intact.

He said, “There is no breakup in our party. If one Galadima is not happy, that is fine. He has a right not to be happy.

“If he chooses to call himself whatever he wants to call himself, that is not the issue. I will not lose my sleep over that. We know those who are in the system. Those who are seeking breakup that is their problem. We are engaging real stakeholders. I mean between the executive and the two arms of the national assembly.

“We have very important influential leaders we are engaging. If people are being sponsored by those who thought our convention will be a failure, those who were expecting implosion, so be it. If you reviewed the headlines before the convention, there were stories like people are going to walk out of the convention; people will boycott the convention.

“In the end, they were shocked to find out the president was seated, the senate president was seated, the speaker was seated and the national leaders were seated. Our chairman was seated. All the governors were seated. They were like what do we do next? If after two weeks of living in pains that they are disappointed, they find mercenaries who are willing to be hired for a purpose, they have right to be hired but will not cause any distraction within the core of APC leaders.”
