Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has expressed satisfaction over the Court’s validation and elongation of Chief Victor Giadom’s stay in Office as Acting National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
In a statement made available to media houses, the party chieftain felicitated with Chief Giadom, describing the Court’s action as a step in the right direction for the service of justice and a fantastic alternative to addressing the avalanche of crisis rocking the party across the country.
He said the Court’s action has laid to rest all speculations and uncertainties about the leadership of the party and the legitimate occupant of the party’s national chair, which has been in unnecessary contention since the exit of Adams Oshiomole.
While calling on Hon. Hillard Eta and few members of the National Working Committee of the APC to respect Court pronouncements and orders, Eze cautioned Mr. Lanre Issa-Onilu an appointee of the erstwhile National Chairman of APC, Oshiomhole that any further statement not approved by Giadom will be an affront to constituted authority and will no longer be tolerated with kid’s glove anymore.
Eze averred that the rush by Oshiomhole and others to visit several courts scouting for court judgement in order to overturn the judgement given to Giadom will end in futility.
Eze pleads with Eta and others to support, Giadom to enable him reposition the party on the path of true progress, stressing that the APC is a party built on justice and rule of law.
Eze appealed to those linking the crisis to Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaech the Miniater of Transportation and General of Common-sense Revolution to desist forthwith, maintaining that Giadom is a seasoned administrator who knows what solution to offer to each challenge that confronts his office.
“The problem with those that have been promoting crisis in APC through erstwhile National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is their ignorance of whom Victor Giadom is thereby attributing what he is doing to Amaechi. Chief Giadom is a full fledged man who knows his onus so far political intricacies are concerned. Though he is a Principal in Amaechi’s Political College but he has distinguished himself as a political Iroko capable of handling his own political destiny on his own”.
Accordingly, the party stalwart cautioned Joe Igbokwe, Oshiomhole and those they represent to leave Rt. Hon. Amaechi out of the current situation in the APC, stressing that the Transportation Minister is very preoccupied and busy with national assignments and delivering on every mandate touching on his office with visible results across the country.
He said those who have taken time out to understudy Chief Giadom are aware that he is the unsung Political Bulldozer from Rivers State capable of crushing all the undemocratic elements trying to destabilize the APC and appealed to all and sundry to respect and support him to salvage the party from the mess that Oshiomhole and those pushing him have put the party into.
The party chief counselled his brother inlaw the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to distance himself from any act in the Edo APC crisis capable of rubbing dirt on his image and urged him to channel his support to Giadom to recover all the losses of the party.
Eze thanked God for reviving his good friend Chief Ajimobi and pleaded with those prompting him into political eclipse to leave him out of APC imbroglio oiled by Adams and his cohorts so that he can properly recuperate.
He called on party faithful and Nigerians in general to remember Ajimobi in prayers for his quick recovery.
The party chief maintained that Victor Giadom has come to stay, stressing that those scheming for his removal should stop wasting their time and invest same on meaningful ventures.
