- Some governors, who are hellbent on removing APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, from office are it again
- A report claims that the governors, some of whose ambition is to become president in 2023, have resorted to massive bribery of top power brokers in the APC to get Oshiomhole out
- Some of the claims could not be immediately verified but the report claims President Buhari is aware of some of the governors' plans and has warned them
The plot to remove the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has been taken a step further by governors of the ruling party who want him removed from office.
The Nation claims in its report on Saturday, January 4 that the governors have resorted to bribing important political actors who can make the Oshiomhole-removal sail through.
According to the report, some of those who have been pencilled down for massive bribes are members of the APC's National Executive Council.
The governors see Oshiomhole's removal as important in their bid to become the party's candidate for the presidency in 2023 general elections.
The report claimed that President Buhari's recent warning that nobody should use his name as a bargaining chip to get 2023 ticket was a veiled warning aimed at the governors but they are not relenting because of their ambition.
Legit.ng could not independently verify the claims of bribery among others made in the report.
The national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, recently lambasted party chieftains who were demanding for his resignation.
Oshiomhole said that his critics were only envious of his achievements.
The former Edo governor has been faulted by some of his party’s loyalists for his leadership style, which they believe was responsible for the persistent crisis within the party.
