APC Governors Recruit Ministers Against Oshiomhole’s Leadership
Four governors of the All Progressive Congress have reportedly recruited ministers to join them in a campaign to remove National Party Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
This is following grievances on the part of the governors who claim that the chairman embarrassed them politically.
There is however doubts concerning how effective their campaign will be as Oshiomhole is currently out of the country.
Reports by an APC official shows that the campaign is to pay Oshiomhole in his own coins.
“The anger among the governors is that Oshiomhole did virtually all the things he is now stopping the governors from doing. He imposed his successor in Edo on his people.
“Till date, one cannot vie for any position in Edo state without the endorsement of Oshiomhole. So, why is he stopping the governors?
“The governors are also angry at leader of the party in the south-west, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is reportedly positioning himself for the presidency in 2023. We were told that while the chairman was being grilled by security operatives, the man flew in from Lagos to practically bail him out.”
“The incident at the governorship primary election and the subsequent embarrassing mischief directed at your esteemed person by the faceless individual in the name of the party is deeply regretted,” he said.
Vanguard reports that the national chairman has launched a charm offensive; tendering apologies to some aspirants who were disqualified during the recent party primaries as in a letter dated October 30, 2018.
“Although you were cleared by the National Working Committee (NWC) appointed screening panel as a governorship aspirant to contest the direct primary election, your disqualification was erroneously announced by unknown source when voting was midway.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has tasked the National Intelligence Agency, Interpol and President Buhari to help bring back Comrade Oshiomhole to the country. The party’s admonition was echoed by the opposition caucus in the Senate which saw nothing wrong in the interrogation of the party chairman., Vanguard reports.
