The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress may soon ease off after the National Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on Friday promised to support the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on the reconciliation assignment given to him by President Muhammadu Buhari.
This comes after Tinubu, in a blistering missive to the president and leadership of the National Assembly, accused Odigie-Oyegun of frustrating moves to restore unity to the ruling party.
But in an acknowledgement letter signed and addressed to Tinubu yesterday, Odigie-Oyegun, expressed confidence in his ability to justify the trust President Buhari reposed in him.
Daily Trust reports that the letter, which was copied to President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and House Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, was issued after Odigie-Oyegun met the president yesterday.
President Buhari earlier yesterday met with Oyegun at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, for about 30 minutes where both men reportedly discussed the allegations contained in Tinubu’s letter.
It was also gathered that Oyegun responded to the allegations contained in the letter written to him by Tinubu.
