Oshiomhole: R-APC made up of bread and butter politicians (UPDATED)

OrderPaperToday – Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has denied that there is a break up in the party, describing those in the Reformed APC (R-APC) as bread and butter politicians.
Oshiomhole spoke to newsmen shortly after a closed door session with APC members of the House of Representatives on Thursday in the National Assembly.
He described the Buba Galadima – led faction as those sponsoring crises in APC, saying: “We won’t loose sleep over the break out of some members of the party. The new leadership will do things differently not the old ways.”

He said further: “There is no break (in the party). Forget one Galadimma. He has right not to be happy. You know those who are in politics for bread and butter, that is their problem. I mean within the executive and the two arms of the National Assembly, we have important party leaders, not those who are being sponsored by mercenaries, by those who think that our national convention will not hold.

“Before the convention, there were stories that people were going to walk out of the convention, that people will boycott the convention. If after two weeks of wriggling in pain for disappointment, you find people who are hired, they are free to be so hired. We are going to put away all our differences. There are worries and there are hopes. There is no break away, I don’t know about Galadimma.”

He continued: “I have tremendous support with members of the National Assembly and with their support and other stakeholders across the country, I emerged as the National Chairman of our party. We had a very robust conversation. We expect total commitment to our party to deepen internal democracy to eliminate any attempts to impose anybody. We reassure everyone that we are committed to justice. Much more important is to discuss issues as it affects all members of our party and members of House of Reps, and issues as it affects the executive and the legislature. I talk as the National Chairman and I hope to deliver on any promise I have made”.

Recall that Mr. Buba Galadimma issued a press statement on 4th of July, 2018 announcing the formation of the Reformed APC (R-APC) made up of the nPDP group and other aggrieved groups of the APC.
