APC Primaries: Govs attack Oshiomhole
Fri, 02 Nov 2018

The crisis in the All Progressives Congress (APC) appears far from over. Yesterday, two governors of the party, Rochas Okorocha and Ibikunle Amosun of Imo and Ogun states respectively, attacked the National Chairman of the party, Adam Oshiomhole, over the lingering crisis over the conduct of primaries and submission of lists of the party’s candidates for the 2019 general elections.

Okorocha, who is the Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum disclosed that the party under Oshiomhole has lost five million voters. Okorocha stated this while speaking to State House Correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja. He said that the leadership of the APC under Oshiomhole as national chairman has fuelled anger among party faithful and protest across the country, resulting to loss of voters ahead of the 2019 general election.

He said that despite the bad leadership of the APC national chairman, the party would not disintegrate as long as President Buhari remained the leader of the country. Okorocha insisted that the claim by the APC chairman that President Buhari was behind his many actions, which have divided the party, was not correct. According to him: “Well, APC will not disintegrate for as long as the person, Muhammadu Buhari, is still the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and remains the leader of this party. So, we cannot give that credit to the chairman.

He cannot disintegrate this party. The party is still intact; just that many people are hurt. “Since his inception and after this primaries, we are losing almost five million voters because of anger, protest everywhere and he needs to be called to order. He has to respect the rule of law, respect court orders and do the right thing – obey court orders where applicable and not turn himself into INEC,” Okorocha stressed. He continued that, “there is no presidency’s support for him to refuse candidates who won elections and give wrong candidates who didn’t win elections. This is the matter and I will simply say that he is not doing it with the consent of the presidency. He is on his own. “I also requested that Oshiomhole must learn to respect the rule of law and obey court orders where they apply.

This issue of treating court orders as tissue papers must stop. It doesn’t reflect the image of our party. He must act quickly to fix the integrity of this party because his coming in ought to have brought joy into the party and not sadness,” he said. Reacting to comments by the National Leader of the party, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, that the APC chairman was providing effective leadership, Okorocha said it was unfortunate that the former Lagos State governor was ill informed about the affairs of the party. Okorocha said: “No, maybe he is being misinformed. If he is properly informed, he will not say what Oshiomhole is doing is the right thing.”

On reports that he planned to join the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Okorocha said: “SDP? How can I build a house and leave it for someone else? I am in APC. I founded the APC. I gave the name APC and so this is our party and we must continue with the party and build the party for victory.” Responding to reports that the name of Hope Uzodinmma has been submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as candidate of the APC in the 2019 Imo governorship elections, Okorocha said that it would not be possible. Okorocha explained that “he cannot be standing on Hope Uzodinma because that man did not win election.
