By Alhaji Ganiyu Alao
Prominent politicians in the South-West geo-political zone on Sunday gave the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie Oyegun a pat on the back for a job well done.
They also praised him for cherishing the mood of the people and using the power of the office of the national chairman to promote the interests of the Yoruba people.
The leaders were happy with Yakubu Dogara’s acceptance of Femi Gbajabiamila as Majority Leader of the House of Representatives and the contributions made by the national chairman of the party.
They described Oyegun as a transparently impartial father of all.
In a statement by the chairman of Yoruba Front (YF), Alhaji Ganiyu Alao at the end of an emergency meeting in Surulere, the leaders expressed profound satisfaction with John Odigie-Oyegun’s leadership for the matured way in which the House of Representatives issue was resolved in favour of both Gbajabiamila and the Yoruba nation.
They commended President Muhammadu Buhari for demonstrating open-mindedness in the running of the party and the country.
“We are happy with the recent development in the House of Representatives. It’s more about making the party work and where everybody’s voice matters “the leaders said.
They also said that the past should be regarded by all concerned as dead and buried.
The leaders while pledging to continue committing the national chairman to Allah to grant him wisdom, forbearance, understanding and objectivity in running the affairs of the party, implored President Muhammadu Buhari to continue to perform his duties with all moral and spiritual conviction.
They appealed to Nigerians to team up with President Buhari in the discharge of his onerous responsibilities.
