‘Change is inevitable’ — APC says no crisis despite ouster of Adamu, Omisore

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed reports of an internal crisis while commenting on recent developments in the party.

The resignation of Abdullahi Adamu as national chairman and Iyiola Omisore as national secretary had fuelled reports of upheaval within the party.

In a statement released on Saturday, Felix Morka, APC national publicity secretary, said the reports of a crisis in the party are speculative.

“Quite to the contrary, there is no crisis in the party. APC stands as one strong, dynamic, resilient and progressive party,” Morka said.

He said the resignations of Adamu and Omisore only show the “high level of institutional maturity and quality of its leadership that place the best interest of the party first and above personal egos and ambitions”.

Morka said the “rapid succession”, in acting capacities, to both offices exemplifies a working constitutional process.

He noted that all sections of the party’s leadership are united in the quest for a more progressive party and that “the personal thoughts of members do not reflect the position of the party of the NWC”.

“Change in the life of any individual or institution is constant and inevitable,” Morka added.

“As Africa’s largest political party, our demonstrated capacity to adapt to change and emergent realities always stands us out, and sets us beyond the wishes of doomsayers.

“We remain committed to the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration towards uplifting the quality of life of all Nigerians.”
