Contrary to the earlier promise of President Muhammadu Buhari not to interfere in the affairs of the National Assembly, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has revealed how the president’s last minute intervention helped to resolve the lingering crisis in the National Assembly.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun who spoke to journalists at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja said the presidential intervention was what actually saved the day.
According to the national chairman, “the misunderstanding in the House has been resolved. Thanks to the President who said no alternative but for everybody to listen to the party. He still did not interfere. His parting word was that the party and the leadership of the House should go and resolve.
“One can say that presidential prestige came to play and that counted a lot. I don’t want to elaborate; and he emphazised and that the party is number one and that everyone owes everything to the party.”
The party chairman who explained why President Buhari is limiting his probe to the Jonathan’s administration, said that four years may not be enough to probe the entire government of the PDP.
On the allegation that the party is responsible for the questioning of Saraki’s wife by the EFCC, he denied that the party was involved in the travails of the senate president and his wife.
“We are completely, totally, absolutely, innocent of it, what we have not done like in the PDP days is to rush and say and interfere with the processes of the EFCC which our president has made quite clearly, everybody should be ready to carry out their legitimate functions without interference.
“The EFCC is doing what it thinks it has to do,” he stated.
Chief Oyegun assured that the South East that the party excluded in the sharing formula in the House would be compensated. “Sharing process is not over, even in the House of Representatives, it is not yet over and all these will be taken into consideration when other positions in the House are being distributed. I have no doubt at all about that,” he said.
