The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) has set up a five-man disciplinary committee to investigate allegations by Senator Lawal Shuaibu, its deputy national chairman north, against Adams Oshiomhole, the party’s national chairman.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Malam Lanre Isa-Onilu, APC national publicity secretary, made this known in a statement issued on Thursday night, June 6, in Abuja.
He added that the five-man committee would particularly investigate Shuaibu’s allegation against Oshiomhole on issues involving the collective decisions of the NWC.
Issa-Onilu added that the APC NWC which passed a vote of confidence on Oshiomhole took the decision at the end of its 38th regular meeting.
He said the committee would also investigate alleged instigation of senators and members of House of Representatives by Shuaibu against the decision of the party on the choice of presiding officers for the National Assembly.
This, he alleged, happened at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, even when the issues were discussed and agreed on by members of the NWC.
He said Shuaibu’s action was particularly embarrassing as he was seen moving around senators and members of the House of Representatives allegedly instigating them to revolt.
Issa-Onilu said Shuaibu did this, while President Buhari was making his concluding remarks on the need for APC to present one candidate to avoid a divided house.
The APC spokesman said the committee, which would be headed by Otunba Niyi Adebayo, is mandated to submit its report to the party’s NWC within seven days from today.
Recall that Legit.ng reported that Shuaibu demanded for the resignation of the party’s national boss, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Addressing Oshiomhole in a six-page letter, Shuaibu opined that in developed nations leaders who are unable to impact on those they are leading or improve upon antecedent leave office with honour.
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.”
