We are hearing today that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, BOLA TINUBU, has demanded the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Chief JOHN ODIGIE-OYEGUN, over what he called his anti-democratic handling of the party affairs.
TINUBU made this demand in a scathing statement entitled, “OYEGUN’s Ondo fraud: The violation of democracy in the APC,” released by the TINUBU Media Office on Sunday.
The party leader said the APC’s democratic credentials had been dealt a big blow by ODIGIE-OYEGUN’s conduct, especially with his handling of the outcome of the Ondo State governorship primary.
He said the APC was a party borne out of the quest for democratic good governance, arguing that the ideology was currently under a critical threat by those who managed to be in the party but were never part of it.
According to him, from the party’s inception, the principles of democratic fairness and justice have always guided the APC’s internal deliberations.
BOLA TINUBU stressed that the party’s founders realized that it was only by fair dealing that the party could remain faithful to the progressive ideals that were presented to the Nigerian electorate as governing creed.
JOHN ODIGIE OYEGUN is yet to react to the claims by BOLA TINUBU.
