Aghene Akhere -Benin
All Progressives Congress (APC) has been cautioned against forcing its National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun to resign.
Assembly of Benin Aborigines in a press release made available to Western Post said such a move will be counterproductive as the change envisaged by Nigerians would become difficult to realize.
In the release signed by its Chairman, Prince Solomon Ebuwa, the group said APC must learn from the mistakes of its predecessors in office by learning how to manage the victory it won in the recent general elections.
“We are urging the leadership of the party to resist any attempt to forcefully ask Oyegun to resign…as the setback that would occur”, thereafter is unimaginable”.
The group also said, “the entire membership of the party must shun any tendency that would undermine public interest but seek to form a platform on which public confidence will be built”.
Commending Hon Femi Gbajabiamila for accepting his fate with his defeat in the jostle for the office of the House Speaker, the group said, Senator Ahmed Lawan’s group must do the same in the national interest.
Meanwhile the Association has enjoined Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki and House Speaker, Rt. Hon Yakubu Dogara to ensure that aggrieved parties are “carried along with a view to creating unity and environment for positive change”.
