After days of going back and forth, governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may have resolved to begin search for a new party chairman that would lead the party to next year’s general elections.

By the provisions of the party’s constitution, the tenure of its current national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and all members of the National Working Committee (NWC) would come to an end by June this year.

Already, 15 governors elected on the platform of the party, who are disposed to having Odigie-Oyegun retain his seat, after failing to further convince Buhari to renounce his latest position, Daily Sun gathered, are narrowing their search beyond Edo State and even the South-south.

According to one of the sources, the pro-Odigie-Oyegun governors for now have just two options: to push for his re-election or get a candidate outside of Edo and even the South-south. A North-west governor is the leader of the pro-Odigie-Oyegun group, while a governor from the South-east leads the nine anti-Oyegun group.

Efforts to get Odigie-Oyegun’s reaction as to whether he would present himself for reelection did not yield any positive result as at press time yesterday.

But a source close to the party chairman said: “I can’t say for now if he would re-contest. He is yet to discuss that with me. I will not, however, be surprised if he decides not to run. What I can also tell you is that Chief and his supporters may work to throw up a candidate different from the one we all know for now. We are yet to micro-zone; if and when we do, a South-easterner may end up emerging as the new party chairman.”

Former senate president, Ken Nnamani is being considered as option ‘B’ by the pro-Odigie-Oyegun group, another chieftain of the party volunteered.

Speaking in a similar vein, a chieftain of the party from Kaduna said they were unanimous in their decision to push for Odigie-Oyegun’s replacement, adding that “we want anybody but Oyegun.”

Asked if President Buhari was disposed to having the immediate past Edo governor, Adams Oshiomhole as a replacement for Odigie-Oyegun, he said: “If you observe very well, I think Buhari has made up his mind to go with Tinubu on this project. And Adams is Tinubu’s project for now. The governors in the end will have no choice but to support whatever Buhari wants, because they won’t want to be seen challenging Mr. President.

“I am not aware that anybody from the South-east is being considered for the position. But again, politics is dynamic. We can wake up tomorrow now and the story changes.

“As at this (Wednesday) night, however, Adams is the favourite. Look, ask around, Baba (Buhari) has been favourably disposed to having him as chairman shortly after he left office.  But Oyegun turned down the ambassadorial appointment he was offered. That was why the change could not be effected before now,” the source added.

Meanwhile, five of the governors who met again with the president barely 24 hours after a meeting to resolve the tenure elongation issue was deadlocked, rose from another meeting, yesterday, with a resolve to abide by the party’s constitution and hold ward congresses.

Buhari had at the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of March 27 in Abuja, said the National Working Committee (NWC) tenure extension decided at NEC’s meeting on February 27 was illegal and unconstitutional.

Three persons were yesterday killed, and seven others sustained injuries after a pillar supporting a signpost fell on a stationary commercial bus in Lagos. The accident, which occurred in the Ilasamaja axis of the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, caused a traffic snarl.

The accident was caused by a speeding truck with registration number MEK 695 XA, which hit an overhead sign post and it subsequently fell on a commercial Coaster bus, which was picking passengers at the bus stop. It was gathered that the impact killed four passengers on the spot.

Among those killed by the felled signpost was one Odejayi Adebola, working with a marketing firm, whose colleagues were immediately alerted through the identity card found on him.

Immediately the accident occured, policemen from Ilasa Division and officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) were alerted and they arrived the scene to evacuate the injured to the hospital.

Confirming the accident, the general manager, LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu, said three persons died in the accident and seven people sustained injuries. He explained that the agency received a distress call via the emergency toll-free line 112/767, about the development.

“Unfortunately, seven victims (four adult female and three adult male) with severe injuries were rescued and stabilized by the agency’s officials and LASAMBUS and subsequently transferred to Mushin General Hospital for further treatment. Sadly, three adult male lost their lives and were later handed over to officials of the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit to be transferred to the mortuary,” he said.

Tiamiyu urged motorist to ensure they drive within the approved speed limit, and also watch out for road signs and other impediments, to avoid unnecessary loss of lives and property.
