- Oshiomhole has blasted Chief Robert Clark over his comment on Buhari
- Clark had called on Buhari to hand over power to the military
- The former national chairman of APC said the statement by the elder statesman is irresponsible
Adams Oshiomhole, the combative former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is back to his element.
This time around, Chief Robert Clark, is at the receiving end of Oshimhole's anger. The elder statesman reportedly asked President Buhari to hand over power to the military.
Oshimhole said what Clark reportedly said is not only shocking but also irresponsible.
Oshiomhole said it is wrong for anybody to canvass for military intervention even if freedom of speech is guaranteed.
The former Edo state governor disclosed this while receiving in audience the leadership of the Law Students Association of Nigeria, who paid him a courtesy call in his private office, in Abuja.
“I watched on a national television one of your very senior colleagues, Chief Roberts Clark, I was shocked when I saw him calling on the president, to hand over to the military.
“I thought that was the height of irresponsibility, giving his knowledge, giving his age and a very senior member of the bar, and what is it that he wanted? He wants a military that will restructure Nigeria. It is again for me senseless, because the structure as it is today, who put it in place? who overthrew the parliamentary system?"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Salihu Lukman, the director-general of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) said All Progressives Congress (APC) may not be able to win the next presidential election.
Lukman, made the statement on Monday, April 12, in a paper titled, Determining Factors for 2023 Contests in APC: Internal Contest and Inconvenient Reality.
Lukman while advising members of the ruling party against having what he called “blind trust” in some of the leaders, warned that the APC may not have its candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Legit.ng also reported that Lukman said the current leadership of the party led by Mai Mala Buni, is making the same mistake made by Adams Oshiomhole-led leadership.
He insisted that the same situation in which there is no meeting of the organs of the party is playing out under the Yobe state governor-led APCCECC.
He said it must be known if the caretaker committee is resolving issues that led to the dissolution of Oshiomhole-led NWC.
