The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday pleaded for forgiveness from all those he might have offended.

It would be recalled that the party has been rocked by a crisis that led to a threat to Oshiomhole position as the national chairman of the party.

He pleaded for forgiveness, arguing that no one is perfect afterall.

He said he had also forgiven those who might have wronged him.

The APC national chairman also revealed some of the measures taken at the National Working Committee, NWC meeting held on Tuesday to calm frayed nerves.

Among other things, as part of measures to solve the crisis within the party, he said all the cases in court would be withdrawn while some of the members who had been on suspension had been told to resume with immediate effect.

Said he: “We have also resolved that we are going to withdraw all cases in court that any member of the NEC is involved in so that we must lead by example and we have shown that we are capable of managing ourselves and therefore we do not need the minister to help us resolve what we are capable of resolving.

“People have issues which they feel strongly about, and as a result, the NWC took some decisions which affected my friend and brother, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, deputy national chairman north. The NWC had a reason for suspending him as at then.

“Today we have reviewed the situation and we believe that in the spirit of our renewed commitment to build unity and true reconciliation, we as leaders of the party elected at the convention should live by example.

“And that means for those we think have offended the system, we have chosen to lift their suspensions. Senator Lawal Shuaibu can resume his duties as deputy national chairman, north.

“We also reviewed the matter of Inuwa Abdulkadir, national vice chairman, northwest. By the same spirit, the NWC was unanimous in lifting the suspension and he resumes work with immediate effect.

“I have asked everyone and they have accepted. Whatever they consider to be my own shortcomings, I have asked for forgiveness and they have forgiven. And whatever I considered to be anyone’s shortcoming that irritated me, I have also forgiven. This is the way it should be. It can only be abnormal if people know how to fight and they do not know how to settle.”
