- Things are definitely not looking rosy for Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the APC
- This is as state chairmen of the ruling party have passed a vote of no confidence on Oshiomhole
- The state chairmen said that Oshiomhole's stay will ruin the chances of the APC's victory in the 2023 general elections
Some state chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Adams Oshiomhole of creating crisis in Edo and as such have passed a vote of no confidence on him.
In a statement published in Abuja, the state chairmen of the party said that Oshiomhole's suspension has been confirmed by both his ward and local government party executive committees on the grounds of the APC's constitution.
The statement partly read: “If the constitution must be respected, the man stands suspended unless if our leaders will like us to believe the constitution can be manipulated like Adams Oshiomhole has been doing.
"It should be shown that there is no sacred cow in order to give hope to the party members nationwide.”
They said that if their national chairman is not removed from the party, the chances of the APC in the 2023 general elections will be greatly affected, adding that the ruling party may stand the chance of being extinct by 2020, if Oshiomhole retains his membership.
They also said: "He had lost the confidence of the party stalwarts and does not command any respect from majority party members.”
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Oshiomhole had been advised to convene a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to resolve some burning issues within the party ahead of the governorship elections holding on Saturday, November 16, in Bayelsa and Kogi states.
The plea was made on Tuesday, November 12, by the director-general of the Progressives Governors' Forum (PGF), Salihu Lukman.
Lukman, who was Oshiomhole's political mentee, however, asked the former governor of Edo state to vacate his seat if he failed to convene the meeting without further delay.
