Cracks in APC, as deputy chairman demands Oshiomhole’s resignation for failure
Less than 24 hrs to the swearing in of President Mohammadu Buhari into office for a second term, the Deputy National Chairman(North) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Lawal Shuaibu, has called for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
According to a six- page letter adressed to the party chairman and made available to newsmen and titled “APC It’s fortune and misfortune” the zonal chairman noted that the APC National Chairman lack the composure, ability and experience expected of him in the administration of the party.
“It is my honest opinion that your ability to ensure this party flourishes is deficient as you lack the necessary composure and you also don’t possess the capabilities and the requisite experience to run a political party.
“The respect was commanding among its members and sympathizers have been completely eroded, while the goodwill has equally evaporated with the type of attitude of threats to members you deploy, including senior members like Governor’s, Senators, Ministers and other Government officials whose functions do not fall within your jurisdiction.”
“In advance democracies,” he stressed, “people who fail to add value or build over and above what they met on assumption of duty show some civilized example, they honourably bow out.”
