The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr John Odigie-Oyegun has responded to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s allegation of sabotage in a scathing letter. Odigie-Oyegun in his response said he supports Bola Tinubu, contrary to allegations that he was frustrating the latter’s presidential reconciliation assignment.
Mr Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the ruling APC had in a letter to Mr. Odigie-Oyegun expressed concerns that his “presidential assignment” of reconciling members of the party was being sabotaged by Mr. Odigie-Oyegun.
”Instead of being a bulwark of support as promised, you positioned yourself in active opposition to the goal of resuscitating the progressive and democratic nature of APC,” the Lagos state former governor said in a letter he copied President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the party.
newsheadline247 gathered Mr. Odigie-Oyegun has, however, rejected that assertion, in his response.
But Mr Odigie-Oyegun’s response shows no direct reaction as he ignored allegations made by Tinubu. Instead, the party chairman simply pledged his support for the ‘presidential assignment’ entrusted with Tinubu.
According to the letter dated February 23, Odigie-Oyegun 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 peacemaking 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.”
Just like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Mr. Odigie-Oyegun sent copies of his letter to Mr. Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
