The All Progressives Congress (APC) held the diaspora meeting in the Madrid Spain, yesterday led by Amb. Stephen Adeayo Tella passed a vote of confidence on the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, stating that those criticizing his style of leadership are being sponsored by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The chairman APC, Spain’s chapter Ambassador Stephen Adeayo Tella, reacting to comments by some persons,described as “hired writers” and some unprogressive bloggers who claims that people are leaving the party because of the leadership style of Oshiomhole whom they described as being too militant.

However, comrade Oshiomhole’s coming as national chairman had enlivened APC as a party and it has occurred to the opposition PDP that they will soon go into extinction which is why they are sponsoring misleading articles and describing Oshiomhole as a combustive person.

Hense,disparaging the name of our national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“We want to state clearly that the entire party in the Diaspora passed a vote of confidence in his leadership and other members of the National Working Committee of the party. Since Oshiomhole came on board, our party have become more attractive and has taken its position as a ruling party. We are aware that PDP and their cohorts are no longer comfortable with Oshiomhole who will ensure they go into oblivion.

“They did not complain when Chief John Odigie-Oyegun was chairman because they were comfortable with his subtle and calm nature which was not helping APC. Now we have a chairman that is proactive, a man that says the truth the way it is and they have started lamenting’’

“Just in one month, he led us to victory in Ekiti state. We conducted a very successful governorship primary through direct primaries in Osun state and today, we have observed that both government and party are working harmoniously in ensuring that the ideals of the APC is propagated across board. Oshiomhole hit the nail on the head when he asked for the sack of PDP members in the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“And that has been the problem our party has been having over the years but the Oyegun led leadership never made effort to advise our President on that. Oshiomhole today is fighting the interest of majority of our party members and that is why we are passing this vote of confidence on him. Those lamenting and calling him names will continue to lament until we win the 2019 general elections and re-elect our President, Muhammadu Buhari.

Our Party must move forward in spite of the various challenges facing us. Elections are at the corner and we must make every effort to ensuring that we are fully prepared and committed to the cause of our Great Party, APC. Every member must see themselves as one united Body in APC.

And if going by the statement of Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, National Chairman, that all primaries will be direct ones instead of the collegial type of Delegates, then members must get their membership cards intact. And all LGA and Wards Chairmen must keep their Registers intact. This is going to be like General elections, for no PVC, no voting. Likewise, no membership cards, no voting.

And of course, no automatic tickets, that's why some Legislators are decamping because they thought that PMB will give them automatic tickets as it was the practice of the Opposition.
