The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Chief John Oyegun has lauded the contribution of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu towards the success of the political party.


The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Chief John Oyegun has lauded the contribution of Atowards the success of the political party.

In a recent interview, the 75-years old politician revealed that though quite a number of people contributed to the overall success of the party's success, Tinubu's contribution is immense and noted by the party heads.

In a recent interview with Vanguard, Oyegun said, '...The APC is an agglomeration of three parties and fractions of others and, as a result, it is quite clear that there are interest groups within the party as it is, and they just want to be relevant to actualize their goals.

'But, again, that will continue, that will not stop in any party, that is always there. And, of course, it is accentuated in a party where independent parties came together to sink their individuality and became one party.

'So those interests are there, there are pressures from outside, there are power groups within, interest groups within the APC, but I am not aware Tinubu is trying to take over the way you are putting it. And the job of the Chairman is to arbitrate between these interest groups within the party and I think we are managing to do that, but, of course, it is not always that everybody will be happy and satisfied and, again, it is the job of the Chairman to make sure everybody has the sense of belonging in the party.

'People have contributed immensely to the success of the party and Tinubu is one of those people who contributed immensely, there is no question about that; we have to accept that and give all due credit to him, but so did a lot of other people contributed to the success that is the APC today. And all everybody wants is a sense of relevance within the system and that we are determined to provide for all these groups that have created the success that is APC today,' he said.
