Oshiomole’s Agressive Behaviour Causing APC Crisis – Prof Sagay

The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay SAN, on Saturday said the former governor of Edo State and the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, ignored his advice on the need to be less combative in his approach to dealing with people.

According to the DAILY INDEPENDENT, said “Sagay, who is also a chieftain of APC, said Oshiomhole’s aggressive approach has cost the APC some states in the country.

He said: “I have advised Oshiomhole rather unsuccessfully to stop being combative, to stop punching and all these aggressive behaviour.

“In a leadership position, you need to stoop to conquer, you need to be restrained.

Even when people are wrong and you want to correct them, you need to show that you are not after humiliating them and that you will work with them to correct things; not to be aggressive, threatening and engaging in pugilistic method.

“I told him this but he ignored it. Because of his aggression, we have lost quite a number of states.”

Meanwhile, Newsflash247 had earlier reported that the former governor of Edo State and the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the party will correct all the wrongs committed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa, if it wins the governorship election in the state.

Oshiomhole said this at the flag-off of the party’s campaign in Ogbia town, Ogbia Local Government area of the state.

He said that the party had presented a good team and was poised to win the Nov. 16 governorship election in the state.

“APC is coming to right the wrongs of the PDP government in Bayelsa state, come Nov. 16.

“The APC government, under David Lyon, will work assiduously to provide security, employment and empowerment for all Bayelsa people,” he said.

Oshiomole said that APC’s victory at the poll would restore hope to the people of the state and rebuild their confidence in governance.

“I understand that my dear friend, the outgoing governor of Bayelsa, is already visited by the withdrawal syndrome facing any governor close to the end of his tenure.

“Lyon understands the deprivation which this state and people of the South-South went through, and that is why he decided to fight for justice,” he said.

In his speech, the APC governorship candidate, promised to evolve policies that would bring remarkable development to the state.

He particularly promised to revive the Kolo Creek gas turbine to ensure adequate power supply in the state.

“I am a man of my words; I will not fail my people; Bayelsa’s money will be used for the good of all; I am coming to serve my people and not for them to serve me.

“There is insecurity in Bayelsa at the moment; we will handle it adequately; I will work for the development of our state.

“We shall ensure adequate power supply in Bayelsa; our gas turbine will be revived under my government,” he said.
