Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has urged the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to learn how to talk from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oshiomhole had on Wednesday described some state governors on the party’s platform as poor students of history.
Oshiomhole said: “Those who think our political future is tied to them, they are poor students of their own political history.
“Some of these people who talk as if they are invincible, they have forgotten that they have run elections in the past and lost until they abandoned their parties and joined us. So if they return back, history will repeat itself.”
Reacting in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor said the former Edo State Governor should apply caution in the way he speaks about the party leaders.
He said: “We have not read Oshiomhole’s statement but I don’t think any National Chairman of a party can say such a thing. He should be advised on how he speaks. He can’t be attacking the leaders of the party.
“Take it from me, a party does not exist in a vacuum. There must be people to run the party. President Muhammadu Buhari has a high pedigree which Nigerians are happy of and Oshiomhole should learn from Mr President.
“We have not read it anywhere but we insist that it is not the best way to treat members of the party. Oshiomhole should learn to talk in a way that brings dignity to APC.”
