APC Chair: Oyegun, Supporters Vow To Fight On, Won't Step Aside by nairavsdollars(f): 10:42am On May 03, 2018
Despite the endorsement of Adams Oshiomhole by President Muhammadu Buhari for the position of national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the incumbent national chairman and his supporters are resolved to fight the battle to a logical conclusion.

Though many thought Odigie-Oyegun will withdraw from the race following the open support of Buhari for Oshiomhole, DAILY INDEPENDENT gathered that he was emboldened by his supporters to continue his campaign while they strategise to ensure he secures another term in office.

Leading the pack are the pro-Odigie-Oyegun governors: Governors Bindo Jibrilla of Adamawa; Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar of Bauchi; Samuel Ortom, Benue; Badaru Abubakar, Jigawa; Nasir el-Rufai, Kaduna; Aminu Masari, Katsina; Atiku Bagudu, Kebbi; Yahaya Bello, Kogi; Abdulfatah Ahmed, Kwara; Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, Nasarawa; Abubakar Sani Bello, Niger; Ibikunle Amosun, Ogun; Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Ondo; Simon Lalong, Plateau; Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Sokoto and Ibrahim Geidam, Yobe.

Among the governors, DAILY INDEPENDENT gathered that Akeredolu and Bello are resolute in their quest to ensure that Odigie-Oyegun retains the seat.

Also included in the plot to return Odigie-Oyegun are some appointees of President Buhari led by Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation.

A member of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) who spoke on condition of anonymity said as part of the strategy, a meeting has been fixed at Amaechi’s residence Wednesday evening. Though he could not provide further details on the meeting, he said it is part of the strategy to ensure that Odigie-Oyegun is returned.

He informed that while the president’s support for Oshiomhole could not be brushed aside given his position as the national leader of the party, many of the stakeholders are not in support of the move because they are not comfortable with Oshiomhole’s leadership style.

“Odigie-Oyegun’s supporters are not giving up. Those flying the kite that he will withdraw from the race are making a grave mistake. The man himself (Odigie-Oyegun) has not publicly said he is withdrawing from the race and from what I know, his supporters are working round the clock to ensure that he returns. In fact, they have scheduled a meeting tonight at the residence of Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi.

“Many of those backing Odigie-Oyegun are not comfortable with Oshiomhole as the national chairman and they are determined to ensure that he did not occupy that position. They believe they can influence the delegates to do their bidding at the convention. We will see what plays out during the coming days”, he said.

In a related development, the Lagos State chapter of the APC said on Wednesday that it had no preferred candidate for the party’s national chairmanship position.

A member of the chapter’s Elders’ Forum, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, made the statement in Lagos.

Welldone...

in as much as I agree with the position that Buhari will sacrifice Oyegun to appease Tinubu and in turn secure his supposed SW block of voters (plus propaganda machinery 'Christian' Vice President)....

It appears Tinubu may just be taken for a ride....

Either way, welldone...

You are insulting the people that used your mothers, sisters, nieces, cousins as sex slaves and used about three million others for pepper soup and suya between 1967 and 1970. You are definitely stubborn and will end up where your three million siblings ended.

Many people still dont understand the strategy. Oyegun has gone already. If cheap plans can override Tinubu, he would not be regarded as strategist. Divorce your sentiments
