APC Governors’ Forum DG, Bombs Oshiomhole, Says He’s No Longer Fit To Lead The Party

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has been blamed for the crisis rocking the party.

Salihu Lukman, director-general of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, which is the forum for all State governors elected on the platform of the APC laid the allegation.

Lukman in a memo to the reconciliation committee chaired by Chief Bisi Akande, says the crisis in the APC is getting worse by the day and balmed Oshiomhole for it.

It will be recalled as earlier published by News Nigeria, the Akande committee was set up by the APC leadership to reconcile aggrieved members of the party.

But the APC governors’ forum DG in his memo to the committee has stated that Oshiomhole can no longer provide the needed leadership for the party.

“Perceived weaknesses of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led NWC served as the justification of electing Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as replacement to Chief Oyegun,” Lukman said.

“Sadly, challenges of internal democracy and fair competitive practices during candidates’ selection processes in the party remained a dream.

“Now, clearly the problems associated with candidates’ selection process has produced what can be regarded as an electoral college. Citizens can vote but our supreme court will eventually determine the winner. All as a result of very poor management of candidates’ selection process by our party.

“Unfortunately, our party’s NWC is hardly able to come up with any reassuring response.

“The crisis in the party is clearly getting worse and worse by the day. It has gotten to a stage whereby the competence of members of the comrade Oshiomhole-led NWC to provide needed leadership to ensure victory in every election has been eroded.

“We can win elections and on account of some inabilities to competently manage legal challenges associated with nomination of candidates, we are compelled to surrender victory to our opponents.”

He alleged that Oshiomhole by his intolerance and high handedness has plunged the APC into greater problems than when he took over the party’s leadership structures.

“It is really unfortunate that we are faced with all the avoidable electoral tragedies that have befallen us, all because our NWC has decided to abdicate its responsibility,” Lukman said.

“His level of intolerance is so high that any disagreement or criticism expressed against any of his decisions or actions is classified as betrayal and therefore requiring disciplinary actions.

“As a result, comrade Oshiomhole is today the leading accuser, prosecutor and judge in almost all cases where disciplinary actions have been administered in the party.”

It will be recalled that Governor Obaseki of Edo State, also blasted Oshiomhole over the weekend, saying he doesn’t respect protocol.

The governor noted that Oshiomhole should inform him whenever he wants to visit Edo State.
