A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu , has faulted the calls by some party chiefs including state governors for the removal of the party’ s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole .
Tinubu spoke with State House correspondents shortly after meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja .
He said his meeting with the President was about the nation, Nigerians , peace , stability and economic progress .
When asked if he is in support of the call for Oshiomhole ’ s removal , the former Lagos State Governor said, “ No ! We all have to respect party supremacy . “You were all here when we had the congress. We elected the new executives . We had the convention and the NEC was formed.
“We surrendered to avoid conflict, domination , abuse of power .
“We surrendered our rights , all rights , to the National Working Committee headed by Adams Oshiomohole, that the NWC should set up electoral bodies to supervise various state congresses and elections . We signed off for it .
“So , if it is not in our individual favour , so be it . We gave three options : consensus . Where there is no consensus because you are more than two or three and you cannot agree to one candidate , you go to the next level .
“The next level is the stakeholders ’ delegate and you have to be supervised by the National Working Committee of the party, national election committee of the party. That shows party supremacy .
“The freest option , the less cumbersome is direct primary ; line up and count the number , 1 , 2 , 3 . If you win , you win and if you fail, go home .
“Then appeal committee was set up to listen to all appeals , internal mechanism for conflict resolution . It was there , you cannot turn against that . You cannot turn against all of that . No !
“ Party is supreme . Party must be respected . Abuses will not do it and anger will not do it . It is party politics , somebody will win and somebody will lose , too bad .
