Trouble seems not to be abating for the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, as 14 of the 19 State Governors of the ruling party are said to have endorsed their signatures for his removal from office.
Governors’ Mandate reliably gathered that two (2) governors from the Southwest, one (1) recently installed governor from the Southeast, a governor from Northeast who was also a member of the National Working Committee and another governor from the President’s home-based are however sitting on the fence over the matter.
Chief amongst the grouse of the governors against Oshiomhole was said to be his highhandedness, pursuit of personal vendetta and total disregard for the input of senior party stakeholders in the running of the party.
Our source stated that while President Muhammadu Buhari is being pressured by a National leader of the All Progressives Congress to reign in the governors and save the job of Mr. Oshiomhole, lobbyists within the presidency are strongly advising the President to wash off his hands from the matter.
Meanwhile, a governor from the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from a state in the South-South region is also leading the charge to have Mr. Oshiomhole.
The governor who had recently had a public altercation with the embattled Chairman is reported to have vowed to make all necessary input to ensure Oshiomhole is “taught a bitter political lesson.”
