Tinubu, others can nolonger operate APC from their bedrooms - Odigie-Oyegun
Tinubu, others can nolonger operate APC from their bedrooms - Odigie-Oyegun

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, said the party under him has been able to neutralise certain individual power bases to the effect that it is now supreme.

The APC Chairman was clear that no individual could operate the party from his bedroom, saying those days were long gone.

“There is no likelihood (of a break-off) but should it happen, the threat and damage it would do to the party would be very minimal today. Which part of the country, the South-West? Who controls Ogun, who controls Ondo ? Oyo is on the fence, who will control Osun , who is likely to control Ekiti in terms of who will be the next governor?

“So the mainstream of the party is now well placed and the point has been proven clearly from Ondo that in a free and fair election, nobody’s word is certain. People don’t see it but there is a new party, totally new and stronger party.

“We didn’t work to dislodge anybody. We worked to establish permanently that the party is supreme. There are two different things, one is negative by working against an individual. Why? But when any part of the party wants to prove they are larger than the party, then the party has to stand and fight and, of course, the President has always said that the party is supreme.

“When Buhari came back from his first medical trip, i welcomed him and all his courtesies before his statement and when he mentioned ‘our oga kpata kpata’ he meant it. The supremacy of the party is one thing he has always hammered on.”
