Oshiomhole Begs APC Legislators: Please Don’t Allow This Government To Be Shut Down
Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged the party’s federal lawmakers to “do everything” lawful to get the National Assembly reconvened, “so that the Nigerian government is not shut down”.
Members of National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC, led by Oshiomhole, made the appeal on Tuesday at a meeting between the members of National Working Committee (NWC) of the party and APC senators and members of the House of Representatives at the Sheraton Hotel, in Abuja. The meeting was attended by majority leaders Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila, alongside other lawmakers. Governors elected under the platform of the party were also expected at the meeting.
He said, “I want to appeal to all distinguished senators and Members of House of Representatives, by your commitment to Nigeria project, your commitment to the sustenance of democracy… your commitment towards ensuring that the promises made by APC are themselves enough to compel you to do everything you can do to lawfully get the National Assembly reconvened, so that these weighty national issues will be deliberated upon, and appropriate decisions reached, so that the Nigerian government is not shut down.”
