APC Crisis: State Chairmen Plot Oshiomhole's Removal
The chairmen of the All Progressive Congress in the 36 states of the federation are said to be working with some top leaders of the party to remove the embattle party chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
This follows the crisis that arose from the last primaries of the party.
It was gathered that the chairmen, some of whom have been in Abuja for up to a week, might call for an emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the party next week to carry out the plot.
However, a source said that the plan might not succeed as the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, had begun moves to foil the plan.
The source added, “Tinubu does not want Oshiomhole removed; so, he too is moving up and down to protect him (Oshiomhole). One of his moves is his private visit to the President recently.
“This may stop the plot of the chairmen because his visit to the President was not unconnected with the Oshiomhole issue.
Also, it was gathered there was an uneasy calm at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on the face-off between the national chairman and some governors.
It was gathered that although there was discontent among members of the National Working Committee, there was no indication that they were mobilising to remove Oshiomhole.
A member of the NWC who spoke on condition of anonymity on Saturday, said, “Of course, there are issues and I heard, like everyone else, that some governors want to remove the national chairman if they get the chance but I am not aware of any plan yet to convene a NEC.
“You need to give at least one week notice to convene an emergency NEC and I am not aware of any emergency to warrant calling for one now.”
