Legit.ng gathers that the youths made their comments in a petition titled ‘Arbitrary and Undemocratic Actions of APC in Edo state under the leadership of Oshiomole.’

The petition was signed by Destiny Oviasu, Abu Umoru and Odianosen Monday, APC leaders in Edo south, Edo north and Edo central respectively.

The aggrieved youths accused Buhari of protecting the former governor from EFCC investigation, and gave the president and the party’s leadership a 14-day ultimatum to comply with the petition, or face mass action.

According to the youths, Oshiomole had consistently violated the APC’s constitution, in collaboration with his ‘hand-picked loyalists’.

The youths are also seeking for elected executive members from the ward to state level who were illegally removed from their posts on trumped-up charges to be reinstated.
