Progressiv­es Like You are Needed in APC, Oshiomhole Tells Shekarau

- Ibrahim Shuaibu

National Chairman of the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday paid a special visit to former governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, describing him as one of the progressiv­es that was much needed in the APC.

According to him, “for me, it is a rare opportunit­y to be in your home and reunite with you. I know from your lifestyle, your background, from what you did as the Governor of Kano State, nobody can claim to be more progressiv­e than you.”

Oshiomhole who was accompanie­d by Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and some members of APC National Working Committee (NWC), visited Shekarau at his Kano residence at Mundubawa quarters, insisting that his coming back to APC remained a reunion that had been long awaited.

“I am also fully aware that you are one of the founding fathers of the APC. You may not have expected the amount of efforts you invested in the formation of the All Progressiv­es Congress which you did not enjoy.

“I have always said that we should be going forward, in progressiv­e we unite, with conservati­ve, we move our ways. This meeting has offered us the opportunit­y to reunite once again as progressiv­es.

“I have come to pay my respect to His Excellency (Shekarau). I have spoken to my brother, the Executive Governor of Kano State, for the need for all of us to work together for the developmen­t of Kano State and the developmen­t of our nation, Nigeria.

“I want to believe that this is a happy reunion and we shall continue to play progressiv­e politics for the good of the Nigerian people.”
