- Some APC governors have been accused of calling for Adams Oshiomhole's sack because of 2023 presidential ambitions
- The accusation came from states chairmen of the party who visited President Buhari in Abuja
- The chairmen said Buhari needed to take action in order to avoid the destabilisation of the party
Some states chairmen of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have accused some governors of being behind calls for the removal of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party.
The chairmen told President Muhammadu Buhari that the governor was doing this because of 2023 presidential ambitions.
This was disclosed in a prepared speech signed by the chairman of APC state chairmen, Hon. Ali Bukar, and obtained by Daily Trust after a closed-door meeting with the president.
The 36 state chairmen of the APC had paid a courtesy visit to Buhari at the State House, Abuja, on Friday, December 6.
The chairmen reportedly said some of the governors worked against the interest of the party in the November 16 governorship elections held recently in Kogi and Bayelsa states. He said they did this to justify the call for Oshiomhole’s removal.
They urged President Buhari to take action against the affected governors trying to create crisis in the party.
Also speaking, Oshiomhole said the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC will be extending its support to all state chairmen on a monthly basis, to enable them run their offices effectively.
Legit.ng had reported earlier that President Buhari disclosed the calibre of APC members who will become the next set of state chairmen.
Speaking to all 36 state chairmen during the courtesy visit at State House, Buhari said the bottom-to-top approach will be used for those among them who seek to be re-elected.
According to him, the prospective candidates must possess solid bases from the grassroots to national levels as one of the necessary criteria.
