Meanwhile, legal moves to remove the national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Thursday, January 23, failed before a high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in Jabi, Abuja, The Sun reports.
The court rejected an ex parte application filed by Mustapha Salihu who is the national vice chairman, northeast of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Anselm Ojezua, a factional chairman of the APC in Edo state, and others who are seeking to remove Oshiomhole from office.
In another report, the national chairman of the APC, Oshiomhole, has lambasted some party chieftains who were demanding his resignation.
Premium Times reports that 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.
However, Charles Idahosa, a chieftain of APC in Edo state said governors on the platform of the party are inching closer to removing the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Idahosa told reporters in Bénin City that APC governors were planning to remove Oshiomhole because of his highhandedness, The Nation reports.
The APC chieftain accused Oshiomhole of being responsible for the party’s crisis because of his combative stance in running its affairs.
