The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, have been accused of being behind Governor Rotimi Akeredolu travails.
According to the Senior Special Assistant to Ondo State governor, Otito Atikase, Tinubu and Oshiomhole are behind the supposed suspension of Akeredolu from APC.
He claimed that the two APC leaders are witch-hunting the governor for not allowing them have their way in Ondo and Edo states.
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC had reportedly suspended Governor Akeredolu over alleged anti-party activities.
The governor had denied the report, claiming he was neither issued a query as claimed by the party leadership nor has he received any letter to that effect.
But the governor’s aide said in a statement he issued in response to the development:
“Akeredolu is a principled man who does not play politics with anything goes.
“He will not allow anything that is not right to be done. Tinubu and Oshiomhole should not rule the party for their expansionist and narrow agenda.
“All I can see is the aftermath of the defeat Tinubu suffered when he sponsored Alliance for Democracy, AD, against Akeredolu in 2016.
“What disciplinary action did the party put in place? Oshiomhole, on the other hand, wanted his candidate to be picked after him in Edo but Akeredolu supported the man on seat-Obaseki. Adams was very angry so he became chairman of the party to witch-hunt our governor.
“All I know is that Ondo people will determine who governs them. The God who brought Akeredolu to governance is not dead but reigns supreme over them.”
