President Muhammadu Buhari has backed Victor Giadom saying “the law is on the side of Victor Giadom”, in his quest to become the Acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Buhari made his position known in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, on Wednesday evening.

The president explained that he has received “very convincing advice” and will hold a virtual meeting with Giadom tomorrow (Thursday).

“The President has received very convincing advice on the position of the law as far as the situation in the party is concerned and has determined that the law is on the side of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman.

“Because he will always act in accordance with the law, the President will be attending the virtual meeting Giadom called for tomorrow afternoon.

“We urge the media to stop promoting manufactured controversies and to not give any further room for mischievous interpretations of the law on this matter.

“In addition to the President, the Giadom meeting will, hopefully, be attended by our Governors and the leaders of the National Assembly,” the statement read.

The current leadership crisis in APC started with the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as its National Chairman by an Appeal Court. Giadom then declared himself as Oshiomhole’s replacement. 

However, the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) kicked against his move and appointed former Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi. 

Giadom was then restrained from parading himself as the APC Deputy National Secretary by a Rivers State High Court.

@AdeOnafonokan, “This is where I draw the curtains with the APC as a party.”

@Bugy_don, “We told Oshiomhole to give up on this foolish godfather quest, that Edo state is not a play ground for minions, he said no, he has forgotten so quick the intellectual sagacity of Edo people, this is just the beginning of his political journey to oblivion.”

@Godswin_Charisma, “I’m sure Buhari doesn’t even know what is happening with the APC because of the high level of hyper-dementia he is suffering from. The thing is, he took sides with what was offered to him. Forget Garba Shehu’s talk of him being someone who respect the law. It’s a hoax.”

@OvieAli, “The same Giadom that was said to have been thrown out of the Aso Rock yesterday.”

@Ozzyhor, “There is an adage in my place that says ‘it isn’t one lane that leads into the market’ lets wait and see the outcome of the meeting tomorrow, the hunter may just have decided to act like the monkey so to be able to lure and capture the monkey.”

@PaulOseakson, “Buhari destroyed APC after using it to win.”

@Oluwatomititus, “I have been supporting PMB since his advent in 2015 , I think posterity will judge some of us that has defended him in thick and thin. I think it’s high time I call it an end with my support for him. I wish him all the best.”

@MistaGomez, “This shows that the primaries conducted in Edo state on Monday by APC is null and void. Zamfara and Rivers loading again.”

#trolls_queen, “But what it means is already stated there in the thread. The law is the law. Perhaps, I have refrained from speaking about the Giadom drama because I amt not seized of the facts. Let’s see how it all pans out.”

@PMB2023, “You don’t want this problems to end, let it continue until it lead the scam party to its grave.”

@Naijawatch, “Game over for Tinubu. Now we know who was behind the masquerade! #StopTinubu.”
