Unic Press UK: The All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy National Chairman, North, Lawal Shuaibu has demanded that the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, resign for allegedly failing to improve the party
In a letter dated May 27, 2019 to Oshiomhole, Shuaibu said:
“It is my honest opinion that your ability to ensure this party flourishes is deficient as you lack the necessary composure and you also don’t possess the capabilities and the requisite experience to run a political Party.
“We have Court cases in every State, by far much more than it was in 2015 and I wonder how much money the Party is likely to spend on litigations arising from mistakes of the National Chairman in not adhering to due process and sidelining transparency.
“The respect APC was commanding among its members and sympathizers have been completely eroded, while the goodwill has equally evaporated with the type of attitude of threats to members you deploy, including senior members like Governors, Senators, Ministers and other Government officials whose functions do not fall within your jurisdiction.
“In advanced democracies, people who fail to add value or build over and above what they met on assumption of duty show some civilized examples, they honourably bow out.
“In that connection therefore, I want to advise you to take the path of honour, to step aside and allow the Party to embark on the onerous task of reconstruction and rehabilitation in those States it was weakened by the effect of manner the last primary election exercises were conducted or even the task of recreating the party where it is on the path of extinction, arising from the loss of a sitting APC Government.”
Prior to the General Election 2019, the APC governed 25 states. However, from May 29 when inauguration holds, the party would be in-charge of 19 states, having lost 6. And could lose more states depending on the outcome of election petitions.
