Buhari Asked me to Help Reform APC, Now He Spearheaded Over my Sack- Oshiomhole
The former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that it was president Muhammadu Buhari who persuaded him to run for the office of the Chairman of the APC, but he is the one who has spearheaded his sacking.
All Smiles: when the going was good.
Oshiomhole said that president Muhammadu Buhari had told him that the party would lose the 2019 polls, if it was not reformed and that he should come in and help with the reforms.
He made this known in Abuja on Saturday, stating that he gave his all for the party, while reiterating that Buhari himself did everything for him to emerge as APC Chairman.
He said: “I ceased to be the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC. Mr. President graciously invited me to run for the office of the chairmanship of the party in 2018, precisely about two years ago. The president told me then that if we did not reform the All Progressives Congress, we can as well forget about 2019. Those were his exact words.”

“But I know that reforms can be challenging and it will entail taking difficult decisions. I accepted this and I believe I did my best. I am happy that at the end of the day, the 2019 elections have come and gone and thanks to Nigerian people, our president had more votes in 2019 than we had in 2015 and we have more members in the Senate and in the House of Representatives.”
“The bottom line is that the President who invited me to lead the party and who mobilised all the support for my emergence as chairman also presided over the meeting where the NWC has now been dissolved.”
