All Progressives Congress (APC) led by its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has gotten many reviews since he assumed office, most of it, negative ones.
During the two-year period since Oshiomhole’s assumption of office, the party has bee embroiled in one crisis or the other, mostly power and leadership tussle among powerful chieftains and members of the party.
All the 2019 general election crisis in the party has been alleged to be his handiwork and many party loyalists have called for his sack or abrupt removal at various times.
But, in the midst of it all, Oshiomhole continues to lead the party, especially the National Working Committee (NWC) which makes decisions on behalf of the party and has always gotten critics from both sides of the party.
In a recent call, the North-East Youth Wing of the APC has called for the sack of the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
They said Oshiomhole’s “crass and ghetto mentality” would lead to the total collapse of APC, if allowed to remain.
According to the statement issued yesterday by Abubakar Maigari, the secretary of the organisation claimed that Oshiomhole has created confusion and eventual loss of some states to the opposition in the 2019 elections.
The statement reads: “Several members of the ruling party have been lost to the opposition since Oshiomhole became APC National Chairman on June 23, 2018, yet, the looming 9th National Assembly leadership election crisis may threaten the corporate existence of the ruling party. Oshiomhole is now akin to a bull in a China warehouse that has to be guided and shown out quickly, otherwise in less than a year from now, APC shall be confined to the dustbin of history.
“Barely a month after Oshiomhole assumed the APC national chairmanship, 15 senators and 37 House of Representatives members decamped, mostly to the PDP on Tuesday July 24, 2018, just as Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara followed suit later.
‘’Oshiomhole may wish to say it was not his making, but politics is about making creative interventions by muddling through and not reaching out with unguided statements drawn from crass and ghetto mentality.
“Apart from the lawmakers, governors of Benue, Sokoto and Kwara states announced their defections also from the APC to PDP under his watch.
‘’Through Oshiomhole’s pronouncements and actions, Zamfara and Imo governorship crisis were fomented. At the end of the day, APC lost governorship seats in Bauchi, Adamawa, Imo, Oyo, Benue, Sokoto and with court decisions, also in Zamfara and Osun states.
‘’Senator Ndume and Senator Omo-Agege were separately suspended for 90 legislative days in the defence of APC and Buhari administration policy, yet Oshiomhole wants those who have been hand in gloves and partner with senate leadership to sabotaging Buhari’s government be rewarded.”
