I will ensure party supremacy if elected as the national chairman-Adams Oshiomhole


Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, says he will ensure party supremacy if elected as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress at its National Convention scheduled to hold on Saturday.

He stated this on Wednesday in Abuja when he had an interactive session with APC young stakeholders.

Oshiomohole stressed that it was the duty of political parties, particularly a governing party to have policies on the economy, social policies and policies that would determine how the society is organized and run.

He maintained that if elected, he would subject the president and other elected officers to the dictates of the party.

He specifically said his leadership would be clear on issues of the economy and governance and would promote core values of progressive governance.

He decried the promotion of ethnic and religious matters by major political parties in the country.

According to him, the whole idea of seeking election on a party’s platform is to share binding ideas and to positively impact on people’s well-being.

Oshiomohole said it was unfortunate that we were yet to have any serious political platform where the agenda was to debate policy choices.

Oshiomhole would be contesting the APC national chairmanship position at the party’s national convention slated for June 23.
