#ElectionPostponed: Buhari’s Minister Blasts Oshiomhole Again
The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, says the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has no moral right to attack the Independent National Electoral Commission( INEC) Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu.
Oshiomhole has been very critical of the INEC Chairman over the postponement of the general elections.
The APC chairman said this did not speak well of the commission under the leadership of Yakubu, asking the chairman to step down.
But addressing journalists at his home in Ibadan on Monday, Shittu said the removal of Yakubu due to poll shift may cause more havoc.
The minister’s ambition to become the governor of Oyo State on the platform of the APC was shattered as the Oshiomhole-led party disqualified him from contesting.
Oshiomhole had questioned Shittu’s governorship ambition after the minister was reported to have skipped the mandatory National Youth Service Corps programme.
Shittu said: “When Oshiomhole supervised those party primaries elections, which can be described as most horrible and corrupt in the history of the party, who called for his resignation?
“"I will not support such call for the resignation of the INEC chairman. To err is human. We have not seen any political motivation as to what has happened in INEC.
“If Oshiomhole calls for the resignation of the INEC chairman, he should also be preparing to resign as chairman of APC for conducting primaries marred by irregularities, and even accused of corruption in its conduct. Did anybody ask him to resign for the horrible management of primary elections under his watch?”
