Some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will on Tuesday meet in Abuja to commence his removal process of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
This is over the alleged manipulation of recent primary elections conducted by the national secretariat of the party.
Leading this are Governors Ibikunle Amosun and Abdul-Aziz Yari of Ogun and Zamfara states.
The primary elections conducted recently by Oshiomhole’s appointed National Working Committee (NWC) members had schemed out candidates of Amosun and Yari as well as 15 other state governors, a development the duo reckoned was orchestrated by Oshiomhole to humiliate them and make the party vulnerable hence their fight back.
Apart from Amosun and Yari, other governors believed to be disposed to Oshiomhole’s removal are Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Mohammed Abubakar (Bauchi), Mohammed Abubakar (Jigawa), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Abubakar Bello (Niger), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Aminu Masari (Katsina) and Abubakar Bagudu (Kebbi).
They are also believed to be doing this with the full support of the President’s men in Aso Rock, including the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, who reportedly felt disappointed with his management of the party so far.
