Professor Itse Sagay SAN, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory
Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) on Saturday said the National
Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams
Oshiomhole, ignored his advice on the need to be less combative in his
approach to dealing with people.
Speaking in a chat with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Sagay, who is also a chieftain of APC, said Oshiomhole’s aggressive approach has cost the APC some states in the country.
He said: “I have advised Oshiomhole rather unsuccessfully to stop being combative, to stop punching and all these aggressive behaviour.
“In a leadership position, you need to stoop to conquer, you need to be restrained. Even when people are wrong and you want to correct them, you need to show that you are not after humiliating them and that you will work with them to correct things; not to be aggressive, threatening and engaging in pugilistic method.
“I told him this but he ignored it. Because of his aggression, we have lost quite a number of states.”
