WARRI-National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole has been urged to intervene in the crisis rocking the party in Delta state. Former acting Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and chieftain of the party in the state, Pastor Power Aginighan made the appeal in Warri, Delta state, yesterday enjoining the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Oshiomole to urgently convene an all inclusive truth and reconciliation meeting to redress the challenge.
He said the timely step would properly position the party for victory in the 2019 general polls. “Your Excellency, please permit me to further draw your attention to the crisis that has been rocking the Delta State APC before, during and after the Ward, Local Government and State Congresses and the National Convention. I am not a stranger to the various efforts you made together with our beloved Edo State Governor His Excellency Godwin Obaseki at resolving the conflicts within the APC in Delta State before you became National Chairman. If all the leaders in Delta APC had endorsed your prescription for peace and unity, we would not have been where we are today. Your Excellency, I know that you will not turn your back on Delta State APC now that you have all that is required to restore peace and unity in our beleaguered APC family. I appeal to you to very urgently extend your peace and unity evangelism to Delta State by convening an inclusive truth, peace and reconciliation meeting. Without this, I beg to submit that your dream to rescue Delta State for APC in 2019 will remain a mirage. It is only those leaders in Delta APC who are economical with the truth that will deny the fact that we are, for now, on an irreversible path to mutually assured destruction (MAD). Never has the old adage that ” a stitch in time saves nine ” been more apposite than now in Delta APC.”, he said. Aginighan further lauded the National Chairman Comrade Oshiomole for effort so far taken to resolve internal crisis in the party before and after he assumed office. “Your Excellency, I wish to take the liberty of this letter to commend your very smart move to the National Assembly to engage with key leaders of the Party on the imperative of peaceful resolution of crises within the Party. Many Party faithful are encouraged by your resolve to listen to aggrieved members with a view of bringing all on board ahead of the 2019 general elections. “, he said.
