The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, accused of recalcitrance, on Friday pledged his loyalty to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying he will support him in the presidential mandate to reconcile the warring members of the ruling party.
Tinubu, in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, had accused the APC chairman of frustrating reconciliation efforts in the party taking “improper unilateral decisions” on issues affecting national and state chapters.
According to him, Oyegun had refused to cooperate by delaying the release of information critical to the resolution of crises in state chapters.
Oyegun in a three paragraph reply to Tinubu after meeting with Buhari on the matter said: “I thank you for your letter dated February 21, 2018, for your prayers and good wishes for my health. I wish you the same and pray that our good God keeps you strong and grants you His peace.
“Let me once again formally congratulate you on the peace making assignment Mr. President has entrusted you with. It is most challenging but I believe you will ultimately justify the confidence reposed in you by Mr President. In this you have my fullest support.
“Be assured, dear Asiwaju, of my highest regards now and always.”
He was silent on the allegations levelled againt him by Tinubu in his letter.
