National Chairman of the All Progressives Party (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun on Friday, June 19, 2015 said that the internal crisis currently rocking the party has ended.
Answering questions over calls for him to resign on Channels Television’s Roadmap 2015, Oyegun said: “The civil war in the party has ended. Like I said, the focus is, look gentlemen, let us not allow this distract us from the pact we have with the Nigerian people.”
On who to blame for the crisis Oyegun said he is willing to take the blame, although he quickly added: “the blame for certain actions I refuse to take”.
On the emergence of Ike Ekweremadu, a high-ranking member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Deputy Senate President for a third consecutive time, Oyegun said the APC would be very very glad if he resigns the position.He said: “Those are issues we would grapple with, the important thing now is to get our government in place.
“If he wants to resign, we would be very very glad, but for now, as at today, our mission is to get the senate settled to get them at work.
“We are in charge; we are in control. There’s no question about that. The aspect of an Ekweremadu may be an aggravation, but we have to continue to work until things resolve themselves and things would resolve themselves.”
