This are sureyy good times for former Eod governor, Adams Oshiomole, as the Caucus of the All Progressives Congress at the House of Representatives on Tuesday endorsed him as the next national chairman of the party.
Oshiomhole and the lawmakers had met behind closed doors at the National Assembly for over three hours, where he solicited their support.
In attendance were the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara; Deputy Speaker, Mr. Yussuff Lasun; Majority Leader, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, among other leaders and caucus members.
After the meeting, Gbajabiamila spoke with reporters in company with Oshiomhole and Dogara, where the APC leader announced the decision of the caucus.
Gbajabiamila stated that the members discussed freely with Oshiomhole before arriving at the conclusion that he had the qualities to replace Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

Gbajabiamila added, “We sat down for over two hours and had a heart-to-heart discussion and we are all on the same page.
“Like he (Oshiomhole) said, he came to solicit support to be the party’s next chairman.
“As a result of that solicitation, we as the APC caucus in the House of Representatives believe in him.
“We have more or less, endorsed him.”
Before the meeting went behind closed doors, Oshiomhole had addressed the lawmakers, expressing concern over the current crisis shaking the APC.
