9jatoday learned that the former Edo state governor had after the NWC meeting today, March 17 asked the party to forgive him of his wrongs, noting that there is no perfect man.

It was reported that Oshiomhole also said that he has forgiven all those who have also offended him.

Speaking about the court cases filed against the comrade, Oshiomhole disclosed that the NWC has also resolved that aggrieved members would withdraw all pending cases in court.

He said; “We have also resolved that we are going to withdraw all cases in court that any member of the NEC is involved in so that we must lead by example and we have shown that we are capable of managing ourselves and therefore we do not need the minister to help us resolve what we are capable of resolving,”

“People have issues which they feel strongly about, and as a result, the NWC took some decisions which affected my friend and brother, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, deputy national chairman north. The NWC had a reason for suspending him as at then.”

“Today we have reviewed the situation and we believe that in the spirit of our renewed commitment to build unity and true reconciliation, we as leaders of the party elected at the convention should live by example.”

“And that means for those we think have offended the system, we have chosen to lift their suspensions. Senator Lawal Shuaibu can resume his duties as deputy national chairman, north.

“We also reviewed the matter of Inuwa Abdulkadir, national vice chairman northwest. By the same spirit, the NWC was unanimous in lifting the suspension and he resumes work with immediate effect.

“I have asked everyone and they have accepted. Whatever they consider to be my own shortcomings, I have asked for forgiveness and they have forgiven. And whatever I considered to be anyone’s shortcoming that irritated me, I have also forgiven. This is the way it should be. It can only be abnormal if people know how to fight and they do not know how to settle.”

It could be recalled that a court sitting in Abuja on Monday restrained the All Progressive Congress from executing the judgement which ordered Oshiomhole’s suspension.
