169

Abuja – The Abuja chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), North-East Zonal Youth Wing, has accused Adams Oshiomhole, the party’s National Chairman, and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, APC National Leader, of trying to sink APC with their coercive manner of determining the emergence of the leadership of the 9th National Assembly.

Consequently, they called for concerted efforts by members of the ruling party to save the APC from total and imminent collapse.

The youths, who cautioned the party’s leadership on the need to adopt dialogue rather than coercion, said the last straw that would break the ruling party was the chairman’s alleged desperation to impose leaders on the 9th Assembly.

In a statement read by the youths’ secretary, Abubakar Maigari, at a press conference in Abuja, the group pointed out that the threat by Oshiomhole and the party’s national leader, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to send away members of the National Assembly who opposed the imposition agenda was appalling.

The APC zonal youths noted that “the duo of Tinubu and Oshiomhole has created unmanageable confusion and eventual loss of some states to opposition in the 2019 governorship elections”.

According to them, “It is irreconcilable that the same Tinubu who orchestrated the removal of the APC leadership winning team led by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and foisted Oshiomhole on the party is Oshiohmole’s alter-ego and partner to the destruction of the party.

“Several members of the ruling party have been lost to the opposition since Oshiomhole became APC national chairman on June 23, 2018, yet the looming 9th National Assembly leadership election crisis may threaten the corporate existence of the ruling party.

“Oshiomhole is now akin to a bull in china warehouse that has to be guided and shown out quickly, otherwise in less than a year from now, APC shall be confined to the dust bin of history.

“Barely a month after Oshiomhole assumed national chairmanship of APC, 15 senators and 37 House of Representatives’ members decamped mostly to the PDP on Tuesday July 24, 2018, just as the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, followed suit.

“Oshiomhole may wish to say it was not his making, but politics is about making creative interventions by muddling through and not reaching out with unguided statements drawn from crass and ghetto mentality.

“Apart from the lawmakers, governors of Benue, Sokoto, and Kwara states announced their defections, also from the APC to PDP under his watch.

“Through Oshiomhole’s pronouncements and actions, Zamfara and Imo governorship crisis were fomented. At the end of the day, APC lost governorship seats in Bauchi, Adamawa, Imo, Oyo, Benue, Sokoto, and with court decisions, also in Zamfara and Osun states.

“Political party democracy world over is about reward for hard work and loyalty to the party, but under Oshiomhole the reverse has been the case.

“Take, for instance, Senator Danjuma Goje single-handedly delivered governorship, three senatorial, 6 Reps, and 19 out of 24 state House of Assembly seats in Gombe State; Senator Ali Ndume was the APC Presidential Campaign Council North-East Zonal Director through whose effort President Buhari polled the highest votes, despite Atiku Abubakar’s candidacy.

“On February 14, 2018, Senator Abdullahi Adamu led nine other aggrieved senators to walk out of the Senate plenary to protest new sequence of 2019 elections which they held was targeted against President Buhari’s re-election bid.

“Seven out of these ten pro-Buhari senators who chested bullets for the sake of their party, APC, and Buhari didn’t make it back to the Senate, and they are Abdullahi Yahaya (APC, Kebbi North), Ibrahim Kurfi (APC, Katsina Central), Abu Ibrahim (APC, Katsina South), Abdullahi Gumel (APC, Jigawa North), Binta Marshi Garba (APC, Adamawa North), Ali Wakil (APC, Bauchi South), Andrew Uchendu (APC, Rivers East), and Benjamin Uwajumogu (APC, Imo North).

“Senator Ndume and Senator Omo-Agege were separately suspended for 90 legislative days in the defence of APC and Buhari administration policy, yet Oshiomhole wants those who have been hand in gloves and partner with the Senate leadership to sabotaging Buhari’s government to be rewarded.

“Oshiomhole has caused the suspension of some state governors without recourse to due process enshrined in the party constitution.

“We must all rise up in unison to deliver our party, APC, which is now asphyxiating in the hands of Oshiomhole and his controller, Tinubu, before it becomes lifeless.”
