The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) took a heightened dimension on Tuesday when members of the National Working Committee (NWC) protested against the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, during the first NWC meeting in 2020.
NWC members insisted that Oshiomole was no longer qualified to preside over the meeting of the party because he had been legally suspended by the Edo State party.
We gathered that, Adams Oshiomhole’s office at the last floor of the national secretariat, was manned by stern looking security and other personal staff of the chairman did asked him to leave immediately.
The Northeast National Vice Chairman of the party, Comrade Saliu Mustapha from Adamawa state, who came out of the ongoing NWC meeting at the party house, told newsmen (angrily) that from the Oshiomhole’s ward to the state he (Oshiomhole) has been suspended.
The party chieftain said he was working on a petition to the Director General of the Directorate of State Security Services (DSS), Inspector General of Police and the Presidency among others.
He blamed all the problems confronting the ruling party on the high handedness of the former Edo State governor, revealing that he had ruled the party dropping the name of President Buhari to ensure any decision went his way.
