The national body of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has notified the party's chieftains in the southwest over the need to fill the vacant position of the Deputy National Chairman (South).
Premium Times reports that the vacant position was formerly occupied by Niyi Adebayo who has now been appointed as the minister of industry, trade and investment.
Legit.ng gathers a letter signed the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole urged the APC chieftains in the southwest, Bola Tinubu, Bisi Akande, and others, to submit nominations for the vacant position within the next two weeks.
Meanwhile, Oshiomhole has downplayed the crisis rocking the ruling party in some states of the federation.
He boasted that the speculated crises rocking the ruling party did not reflect in the party’s electoral victories in the polls conducted so far.
Oshiomhole, who dropped the hint while playing host to Kano state chapter of the party recently, joked that if a crisis is what it takes to win elections, he won’t mind the continuation of more crises.
In other news, local government chairmen of the APC have accused the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), plotting to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari over the growing insecurity in the country.
The APC-LGC at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, January 30, said the PDP is planning on carrying out its agenda by manipulating the National Assembly.
Similarly, the Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma, has alleged that Igbo leaders in the PDP are at the forefront of a plot to topple the administration of President Buhari.
Governor Uzodinma made the accusation when reacting to the protests by the PDP over the Supreme Court judgment which nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha.
The Imo state governor said he has noticed that Igbo leaders were at the forefront of the PDP protests staged in Abuja against the Supreme Court, noting that leaders from other parts of the country did not take part in the demonstrations.
