The former governor of Edo urged aggrieved members of the party, especially members of the new Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, to remain in the APC, which “we jointly built”.

He assured members of the party that his leadership would put in place a conflict resolution mechanism which would handle crisis within the party.

Specifically, Mr Oshiomhole said that he would ensure effective reward system for party members who had worked for its success at all levels.

While paying tribute to the founding fathers of the party, he said that its pioneer interim national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande and National Leader, Bola Tinubu, were outstanding.
