The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Wednesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Oshiomole addressed issues around his performance as the party’s National Chairman, saying he couldn’t have done any different in light of the circumstances.
The embattled chairman also reacted to some reports that about 15 Governors have been making arrangements to remove him ahead of the 2019 general elections, insisting he was under no illusion as his job as the party’s Chairman can come to an end at any time.
The former Edo State governor further stated that he cannot compromise his core principles of fairness and equity, simply to satisfy some aggrieved governors who are his friends.
He added that he would not mortgage his conscience to keep his job and that he has no power to appoint candidates.
According to him, if he eventually got removed as the chairman of the ruling party, he would have satisfied his conscience by working along the path of fairness and justice.
Oshiomole got a much-needed reprieve as he was defended by a national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who said the chairman was on the right path after his meeting with the president.
