Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, on Saturday, March 7, has distanced himself from part of those plotting the removal of the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Recall that on Wednesday, an FCT High Court had suspended Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the party.
In less than 24 hours, another order from a Federal High Court in Kano State had restored him as the APC National Chairman.
But the party insisted on obeying the first court verdict, since the courts are of coordinate jurisdiction.
The two courts orders had been a source of confusion as it had divided the National Working Committee and other chieftains of the party.
Also, report had claimed that some governors and some ministers are behind Oshiomhole’s ordeal because they intend to hijack the party for personal gains.
Meanwhile, Governor Bello has debunked claims that he is part of those plotting the removal of the National Chairman.
Bello who spoke through the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo, on Saturday said he will never do anything that will disrupt the peace of the party.
“Governor Yahaya Bello will never do anything that will disrupt the peace of APC.
“His interest has always been the peace and stability of the party.
“He is a true party man whose interest is the continued political relevance even beyond 2023,” he said.
