- An APC chieftain Adebayo Shittu has supported the call for the resignation of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole
- According to Shittu, with Oshiomhole leading the party, APC will go down by the time Buhari ends his second term
- The former minister said along with others, he will do everything to force Oshiomhole out
Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former cabinet member of President Muhammadu Buhari has supported the call for the resignation of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the ruling party.
Recall that Senator Lawal Shuaibu, APC deputy national chairman north, had recently written Oshiomhole to resign as national chairman.
In the letter titled APC: Its fortune and misfortune, time to act, Shuaibu said: “It is my honest opinion that your ability to ensure this party flourishes is deficient as you lack the necessary composure and you also don’t posses the capabilities and the requisite experience to run a political party."
In his reaction, Shittu said he endorses it the call as Oshiomhole is full of himself.
“The truth is with Oshiomhole this party would go down by the time President Muhammadu Buhari finishes his 2nd term.
“Oshiomhole is full of himself and he has an ego problem and wants to dominate every environment and democracy is not like that. I know that many of us who are conscionable members of the party who think of the future of this party and the fact that this party should continue to be relevant even after President Muhammad Buhari has left office would stand by this call. We are concerned and everything that we can do to force him out, we will do it,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Shittu warned that the call for the resignation of the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, by Oshiomhole was unfair, unacceptable and may jeopardise conduct of Saturday, February 23 election.
He said: “When Oshiomhole supervised a horrible primaries elections of the party, who called for his resignation? I will not support such call for resignation of the INEC chairman. To err is human. We have not seen any political motivation as to what has happened in INEC."
