- Some APC governors have reportedly renewed the plot to remove the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole
- The governors are also allegedly considering the former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, as Oshiomhole’s replacement
- A member of the APC’s National Working Committee, however, said that the plot to remove Oshiomhole would fail
A fresh plot to remove the embattled national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is reportedly being hatched by state governors on the platform of the ruling party.
ThisDay reports that the state governors are already considering the former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, as Oshiomhole’s successor.
The newspaper further claimed that some of the governors had resolved on Wednesday, December 11, to push further for the removal of Oshiomhole.
Legit.ng notes that President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier intervened in the crises. The president further proposed setting up a reconciliation committee to address the crises rocking the party.
It was, however, gathered that some of the governors and other aggrieved stakeholders were still up against Oshiomhole at the National Executive Committee held recently.
Nevertheless, a member of the National Working Committee (NWC) was quoted to have said that the plot to remove Oshiomhole would fail.
The NWC member who spoke on the condition of anonymity said those who are against Oshiomhole do not have enough numbers to achieve their ambition.
The source noted that Oshiomhole has the support of the state chairmen of the party, who dominate the NEC.
