Oshiomhole Walks Tightrope, Seeks Reconciliation with Aggrieved Govs

Published

on

Concerned that the crises generated by the primaries for the selection of candidates for next year’s general election might jeopardise the chances of the party in some states, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, is making strenuous efforts to reconcile aggrieved members, particularly governors, whose interest have been injured in the process.

Some governors have been up in arms against the national chairman because their preferred candidates lost out, rallying their colleagues to move for his removal.

Leading the charge against Oshiomhole are Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN (Ondo), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara) and Rochas Okorocha (Imo).

The governors, whose aspirations had been thwarted by Oshiomhole’s stubborn adherence to the party’s guidelines on the primaries process, had raked dust, sponsoring public demonstrations and approaching President Muhammadu Buhari to swing the tide in their favour.

Although they failed to get Buhari, who bluntly told them that it was a party affair, which could only be resolved with the help of the chairman, Oshiomhole, party sources told THISDAY did not think he should take undue advantage of the favourable presidential disposition, but rather he should seek reconciliation.
