The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Wednesday met Senate President, Bukola Saraki and other members of the party’s caucus in the Senate.
Oshiomhole stated that they were working on sustainable solutions to the party’s crisis.
The former Edo Governor led members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to meet the Senate APC caucus and promised they would work with other leaders of the party to resolve the crisis.
“For me, I think we should stop celebrating our size. I am not fascinated when people say we are the largest party in Africa, because in economics, you could suffer from diseconomies of scale.
“You can become too big as to become dysfunctional. And in the modern world that is knowledge-driven, small can be beautiful. So, I want to speak to democratic party, cohesive party, united party, the most powerful party. And this will be measured not by ourselves but by the Nigerian people in terms of what we are doing, how we do it and the cohesiveness that they can see.
“So, that is in our hands and it is those values I want us to celebrate in future. And I do not have any illusion that these are things we can just pluck. They have to be result of conscious hard work to have a united house.
“So, I ask you Mr President of the Senate and Distinguished Senators to trust that working together along with our leaders who are not here, we are committed to finding solutions that everyone will be able to smile, remain in the house, work in the house,” he said.
In his remarks, the Senate President Bukola Saraki, described Oshiomhole’s visit as a good omen for the party.
“Your emphasis on finding solutions is commendable. The essence of leadership is finding solutions, your attitude, your approach are very promising,” Saraki
