The All Progressives Congress (APC) said yesterday it had commenced wide consultation with major stakeholders of the party to address the bad blood generated by the party’s recent governorship primaries in Ondo State.
APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, whose handling of the dispute drew flak from the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, called for truce yesterday.
He stressed the need for the APC to go into the election as a united body instead of dissipating energy on issues that could be resolved with the aid of the party’s internal mechanism.
Oyegun who also responded to Tinubu’s call to resign for allegedly overruling the APC National Working Committee (NWC) vote on the Ondo State APC Governorship Primary Election Appeal Committee Report said he felt insulted by the allegation.
He said : “There was absolutely no meeting which I chaired that voted in the manner alleged. Clearly, the report on which the media office of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu acted was a figment of someone’s wild imagination.”
