As the Acting National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Victor Giadom, formally takes over the administration and running of the ruling party with the approval of President Mohammadu Buhari, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) has described the Rivers born politician as a fantastic and intelligent strategist on a divine mission, to rediscover the visions and mission of the founding fathers of the party which are currently under severe threat following the maladministration and crass ineptitude displayed by Comr. Adams Oshiomole.
In a statement made available to media houses, the party chief said, one neither needs a soothsayer, a fortuneteller nor a necromancer to discern that Chief Giadom, an administrator with sterling and scarce qualities, whose imprints in the road constriction revolution of Rivers State when he held sway as one of the best Commissioners of Works ever in Rivers State during the golden regime of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, will drive the party to higher grounds within the period he will man it’s affairs.
According to Chief Eze, It was Chief ‘Giadom, who stood against all the Unwholesome plots of Governor Nyesom Wike during the 2015 general elections in Rivers State, as the Director General of the Campaign Organisation of the then Rivers APC Governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Petetside.
It surprises me when some fellows who do not know the political background of this respected and feared political strategist from Rivers State, make unguarded comments on his person, especially his capacity to administer a party as large as APC.
Haven taken firm control of the structure of the APC at the national level, I wish to remind him of the huge responsibility laid on his shoulder and encourage him to do everything humanly possible to reposition the party to withstand the deadly plots of PDP to take over power come 2023.
“I challenge Giadom to do his best and work with staffers of the party, relevant organs and particularly, President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the ultimate leader and father of the party; the National Working Committee and the National Executive Committee, Governors Forum of the party including the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives, to rediscover the rationale behind our taking over of power from the PDP in 2015”, Eze stressed.
He further counselled Giadom to avoid the unfortunate mistakes of Adams Oshiomhole, who thought that a political party is a labour union, where noisemaking is a norm.
Eze went further to state that Giadom should should that his coming at this point in time of APC’s History is crucial and urgent.
1, He should set the enabling Environment for healing of frayed nerves in the party.
2, He should also Take inventory of Those shortcomings that tended to diminish internal democracy in The running of The party.
3, He should reach out to aggrieved party men and document their grievances for necessary action.
4, He should itemise The essential ingredients of change, Which were The founding principles of APC.
As a type of John The baptist He has been positioned by situation and circumstances to clear The way for a new national chairman that would guide The party with honesty, humility and inclusion.
Eze cautioned Adams Oshiomhole to warn his boys who are threatening to sabotage the 17th March scheduled NEC Meeting, because the period of madness and bravado in politics is gone with his ouster as the national chairman of our great party.
In the same vein, Chief Eze, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for respecting the general opinion of the greater number of members of the APC, by approving and sanctioning the 17th March NEC meeting. This, he described as a wonderful development which will usher in a new Ag. National Chairman for the party pending the convocation of a National Congress where a Substantive National Chairman will be duly elected to reconcile and unite the members so as to allow for brainstorming on how to recover the States that Oshiomhole’s chairmanship freely gave to the opposition People’s Democratic Party.
Eze warned that on no account should Adams be retained as Chairman of the APC if the party must survive beyond 2023.
