2019: Plot To Remove Oshiomhole Thickens
Some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will on Tuesday meet in Abuja to commence his removal process of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
This is over the alleged manipulation of recent primary elections conducted by the national secretariat of the party.
Leading this are Governors Ibikunle Amosun and Abdul-Aziz Yari of Ogun and Zamfara states.
The primary elections conducted recently by Oshiomhole’s appointed National Working Committee (NWC) members had schemed out candidates of Amosun and Yari as well as 15 other state governors, a development the duo reckoned was orchestrated by Oshiomhole to humiliate them and make the party vulnerable hence their fight back.
Apart from Amosun and Yari, other governors believed to be disposed to Oshiomhole’s removal are Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Mohammed Abubakar (Bauchi), Mohammed Abubakar (Jigawa), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Aminu Masari (Katsina) and Abubakar Bagudu (Kebbi).
They are also believed to be doing this with the full support of the President’s men in Aso Rock, including the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, who reportedly felt disappointed with his management of the party so far.
The Oshiomhole-Must-Go governors believe that governors like Simon Lalong of Plateau, Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos are though not happy with Oshiomhole, may no longer show interest in his removal, because they either have what they seek or not in a position like Ambode to get anything done.
During Tuesday’s meeting, the governors are expected to write their names and sign undertaking that Oshiomhole must go.
The governors' meeting is coming at a time President Muhammadu Buhari had sent words round to the affected states that he would make sure the alleged injustice in all the affected states would be addressed.
The President was said to have given this assurance to some traditional rulers from Ogun State, who visited him last Sunday.
