A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state has recommended the outgoing of Edo state governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to replace the party’s national chairman, John Odigie- Oyegun.
Chief Ovie Onoriode, according to Vanguard said
Oshiomhole’s leadership will help the party emerge stronger from its current internal crises.
The party chieftain faulted Oyegun for saying he would do anything to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected in 2019, describing the remark as distractive. He said: ‘’It is against the ideals of the party for the National Chairman to openly shut the door this early against other aspirants.”
Meanwhile, the crisis in the ruling APC has deepened after the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, snubbed two meetings scheduled to resolve the controversy trailing the September 3 governorship primaries in Ondo state won by the former president, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Rotimi Akeredolu. According to the Guardian, a meeting was scheduled for last week Tuesday to resolve the disagreement over the Ondo primaries, but Bola Tinubu, who is considered central to the issues, tactically evaded the last Tuesday meeting on the excuse of going abroad for a medical treatment. It was learnt that whether the reconciliation meeting was to have been held last week or will hold later, Tinubu is not favourably disposed to attending any meeting with Odigie-Oyegun.
