Some politicians from the South-East geo-political zone on Tuesday extolled Chief John Odigie Oyegun’s virtues and competencies, describing him as a brilliant strategist and inspiring leader.
“Very few politicians get to change the political landscape of their state not to talk about the country. John Oyegun is such a politician.”
They also fired shot at those calling for his resignation, describing the call as an irresponsible vendetta.
“We have great admiration for your leadership, the concern and active support you have shown for the south-east cause. You are a man of great political courage and resilience” the leaders said.
In a statement issued in Enugu by the coordinator of South-East Politicians Forum (SEPF), Chief Maxwell Nwosu, the leaders not only appreciated Oyegun’s political contributions and personal strength but commended him for his efforts in making the APC better, building bridges of unity across ethic and religious divides, giving purposeful leadership to APC and stamping his unique leadership style in the management of the party
“John Odigie Oyegun is humble, gentle and genial to the core. He is also honest, kind, generous and selfless. He has taken principled positions on a wide range of party issues. His leadership style has earned him the gratitude and admiration of many while his conviction and willingness to speak out with a clear voice make him the best national chairman in the country” they said.
The leaders called on Nigerians to join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to develop the country.
“The national chairman has been an outstanding beacon of reason and understanding of Nigeria’s government and politics. He has helped to reshape party politics in the country. His outstanding leadership is appreciated by Nigerians from all walks of life”
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency is earning Nigeria enormous international goodwill and support”
