National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has eventually reacted to the claim by Itse Sagay that his aggressive and combative leadership style has affected the party negatively.
Oshiomhole said: “All I can tell you is that I have a lot of respect for Professor Itse Sagay. I do remember very well that he was one of those who said I should contest for President.”
“I respect him; he’s a very consistent fellow. He believes in what he believes in and he pays the price for it.”
“So, I have a lot of respect for him. If he has said those things, I’m not going to reply him through the newspapers. I will find out what he said.”
“Then, I will call him and know what the issues are, what he’s not comfortable with. He is my brother and my elder statesman.”
