It is not easy for a man to give thumbs-up to another man perceived to be seeking his downfall or shaking a table he is standing on.

But in politics, there is no permanent friend or enemy and here is one image that actually speaks so much of what politics should be. 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) held its national convention for two days - June 23 and 24 - in Abuja and it gave birth to a new executive of the party. 

John Oyegun's reign ended the moment Mr Adams Oshiomhole was elected the new Chairman of the APC. 

It had been a period of war that climaxed at the convention with some members of the party engaging in a brawl at the Eagle Square, venue of the convention. 

Mr Oyegun had fallen out of love with the powers that be in the ruling political party and they wanted an end to his reign, anointing Mr Oshiomhole for his job prior to the convention.

He had stood his ground at some point, insisting that he would re-contest for the chairmanship of the party, but the support he should get from his state was not forthcoming. 

Few days to the convention Oyegun withdrew from the race and that rested the whole pressure that should have been on the favoured one - Oshiomhole.  

After the new Chairman was elected, Mr Oyegun was captured giving thumbs-up to the leader of the APC, Senator Bola Tinubu, who was believed to be behind the replacement of the leadership with Oshiomhole. 

Senator Tinubu had, months ago, accused Mr Oyegun of sabotaging the assignment given to him by President Muhammadu Buhari to reconcile aggrieved members of the APC. 

But it appears the dust has now settled and Senator Tinubu apparently deserves some accolades, if the thumbs up by Oyegun is anything to go by.

The thumbs-up came with a smile, but whether he was saluting the leader of the party for a finished work, or he was just greeting him in a casual way, time will tell.
