APC crisis : Clear this mess, Buhari tells Oshiomhole
Tue, 23 Oct 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

ABUJA — Following the deluge of controversies trailing the primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to clear the mess.

In the same vein, the President has assured all aggrieved party members that any form of injustice arising from the primaries of the party would be addressed and no one would be treated unjustly. This is coming in the wake of moves by some governors belonging to the party to force a National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the party to address issues of arbitrariness raised against the national chairman. Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, one of those named in opposition against the national chairman, was adamant yesterday as he accused Oshiomhole of collaborating with a cabal based in Lagos to manipulate the primaries in the state to favour political interests outside the state. In further indications of bedlam, Senator Sani Mustapha Mohammed, representing Niger South resigned from the party yesterday, following the removal of his name from the party’s list of candidates forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The problems of the national chairman were further stoked in Imo State yesterday after hundreds of party members aligned to Governor Rochas Okorocha took to the streets of Owerri, the state capital to protest alleged substitution of the names of allies of the governor in the final list forwarded to INEC. At the root of the problems for Okorocha, Vanguard gathered, was what party sources said is the determination of Okorocha to take everything meant for the state irrespective of the feelings of other stakeholders from the state. Okorocha, Vanguard further gathered, wants his son-in-law to be governor and at the same time take up the Senate seat presently occupied by Senator Hope Uzodinma.
