APC Governors Support The Move To Remove Adams Oshiomhole
APC Governors have reportedly endorsed the move to remove the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole despite the fact he claimed his mission was to galvanize the APC into a disciplined and cohesive platform ready to clinch victory at next year’s general elections.
ThisDay reported that while the party has explained why it opted for consensus and made some hard choices in a desperate bid to meet the October 18 deadline set for submission of its candidates’ list for elections into the National Assembly, APC Governors will be converging in Abuja tomorrow to finalize their move.
Recall that we reported that Adams Oshiomhole had reacted to criticism by one of the presidential aspirants on the platform of the party, Alhaji Mumakai Unagha, who said the APC could not win under his leadership, describing it as cooked narratives from those who failed to impose their preferred candidates on the party during the nomination process.
He said, “The crime committed by Oshiomhole’s leadership is its disdain for impunity and circumvention of due process perpetrated in some of the states at the pleasure of some influential stakeholders.
“These influential stakeholders, according to grapevine, have begun to mobilise to pass a no-confidence vote on the leadership of Oshiomhole, having failed to impose their preferred candidates on the party in the nomination process.”
The ruling party, which was faced with an almost intractable dispute in some of its state chapters over the outcome of the governorship and legislative primary elections, had to lay back the consensus option that appeared politically correct at the time.
