– Rochas Okorocha said the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, is not really aware of what is happening in the party
– Okorocha, the Imo state governor, maintained that if Tinubu is properly informed about the party’s affairs he would not have been supporting Oshiomhole
– Some APC governors recently wanted the removal of Oshiomhole who is the party national chairman
The Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, declared that if the national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, is properly aware of what is happening in the party he would not have been supporting Adams Oshiomhole.
Some governors on the platform of APC recently called for removal of Oshiomhole who is the national chairman of the party.
Channel TV reports that Okorocha said: “If he is informed properly, he would not say what Oshiomhole is doing is right.”
The governor made this known on Thursday, November 1, in Abuja, while reacting to Tinubu’s rejection for the call of Oshiomhole’s removal.
Tinubu, however, said he is not in support of the calls for the removal of Oshiomhole. He appealed to aggrieved members to respect the party’s supremacy and channel their grievances through its appeal committee.
Meanwhile, It had been reported that some governors on the platform of the APC were calling for the removal of the chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
A minister who spoke on the condition of anonymity on Wednesday, October 9, said they were not comfortable with his style of leadership.
The minister reportedly claimed the governors did not financially contribute to the party’s convention and were monitoring how money gotten from sale of nomination forms are being spent.
He said: “Some of the governors who are displeased with the leadership style of Oshiomhole have told President Muhammadu Buhari that Oshiomhole must give way if the APC is to record victory in the 2019 general election.
“They are insisting that Oshiomhole must go because they can’t work with him for the election next year. They refused to contribute to the APC convention and asked the party chairman to use the N10 billion he collected from the sale of nomination forms. They are also monitoring how he is spending it.”
