The interrogation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the Department of the State Services (DSS) has reportedly created a deeper crisis among the governors of the party.
Governors in support of Oshiomhole were reportedly rebuking two of their southern colleagues who reportedly orchestrated the national chairman's interrogation.
Vanguard reports that a source claimed that the governors fumed that two of their colleagues want to melt the party because of their interests.
However, the national publicity secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, claimed ignorance of the interrogation.
He said: “We do not have any information on this rumour. More so, the Chairman is not around in the country to confirm or deny this. As soon as we have any relevant information, you’ll be updated."
Legit.ng earlier reported that Oshiomhole had on Monday, October 22, dismissed as untrue the reported gang-up by APC governors against his leadership of the party.
The APC national chairman, in a statement alleged that conservatives within the party are ganging up to pass a vote of no-confidence in him.
He said his sin was his refusal to allow continued impunity and circumvention of due process being perpetuated in some states. He also said he was not surprised by the gang up, as he never had the illusion that the process of reforming the party was going to be an easy one.
