- The first meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Party (APC) ends in chaos
- The NWC members say Oshiomhole is no longer qualified to lead the party having been suspended
- The APC's national vice chairman in charge of the north east, Mustapha Salihu, says he would report Oshiomhole to security agencies
The year 2020 reportedly commenced on a sour note for the national leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as its National Working Committee (NWC) walked out on the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Daily Sun relates the action of the NWC members to a revolt against Oshiomhole, who is in a feud with the governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki.
The members walked out on the national chairman at the first meeting of the year.
The report said those who revolted against Oshiomhole argue that he is not qualified to lead the party at the national level since he had been suspended from the political organisation in his state.
Speaking on behalf of his counterparts, the party’s national vice chairman in charge of the north east, Mustapha Salihu, said they took the action because of Oshiomhole’s single-handed endorsement of Waziri Bulama to take over the position national secretary.
Salihu boasted that he would take Oshiomhole before the Department of State Services (DSS) and such other agencies if the latter does not step down till the issue before him in Edo is resolved.
According to him, Oshiomhole is responsible for the crises recorded by the party.
Legit.ng reported how Oshiomhole was suspended by the party at his home state, Edo.
Oshiomhole faced a no confidence vote from the party following the alleged roles he was said to have played in the crisis rocking the APC in Edo.
