The Immediate past national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun, has expressed sadness over the current crisis rocking the party ahead of the general election, even as he is confident that the ongoing peace moves will yield expected results.

Oyegun called for compromise for peace to reign, saying “we need to begin to confront the elections in February next year, which given the state of the nation are bound to be challenging.”

This comes as the ruling party has been rattled with various crisis leading to massive defections of members across the States.

Speaking with newsmen at his Abuja residence on Wednesday, the elder statesman appealed that every effort should be made to establish peace such that the party will approach the general elections as a united force and rally around a united program of action.

He said: “What we require is peace. I pray God give these teams the wisdom that is required to work out the settlement to bring the party back to a strong political party fighting force.”

While appealing to APC members to show understanding and be loyal to the party, Oyegun said: “As far as the party is concerned, I appeal that there should be peace and every effort should be made to establish Peace such that we will approach the elections a united force, a united voice a united party, rallying around a united program of action.

“We need to begin to confront the election in February next year, which given the state of the nation, are bound to be challenging.”

The former APC national chairman also appealed to Nigerians to avoid distractions, and face real issues during the ongoing campaigns.

He added: “We all know the problems of our country; who has answers for these problems, what are the answers? I think those are issues this two and half months should try to address.”
