Oyegun said: “Unfortunately, it is clear that there were false steps since we came into office which created problems and the very nature itself of the amalgamating parties, created its own issues all of which have tended, up till now to have affected the mode of operations and the level of interactions among the various arms of government and the party.
“So, we have a unique, God-given opportunity to take a look at ourselves, take a look at the National Assembly, look at the party and look at the way we all interact between ourselves and the governed and it is my hope that this will be the very best of this high-level interaction.
Oyegun said even though it was the first interaction between the NWC and the senate leadership, “it is better late than never.”, To Oyegun, the party was “at a critical juncture in its existence.
“We have the opportunity to take a strong look at the party, an opportunity to take a strong look at our control of the senate, the opportunity to draw up a new basis of cooperation between the party, its members in the Senate and of course the executive because we all belong to one party.” (The Nation)
