APC Zonal Youths Blame Oshiomhole’s For Party’s Woes
Abubakar Maigari, the secretary of the organization, made the call on behalf of the group in a statement issued on Thursday where he raised concerns about the “crass and ghetto mentality” of Oshiohmole.
According to them, the National Chairman’s behaviour is capable of collapsing the party totally as it has already resulted in the loss of some political grounds to the opposition PDP.
The statement as obtained from Sahara Reporters read: “Several members of the ruling party have been lost to the opposition since Oshiomhole became APC National Chairman on June 23, 2018, yet, the looming 9th National Assembly leadership election crisis may threaten the corporate existence of the ruling party.
Oshiomhole is now akin to a bull in a China warehouse that has to be guided and shown out quickly, otherwise in less than a year from now, APC shall be confined to the dustbin of history.
“Barely a month after Oshiomhole assumed the APC national chairmanship, 15 senators and 37 House of Representatives members decamped, mostly to the PDP on Tuesday July 24, 2018, just as Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara followed suit later.
‘’Oshiomhole may wish to say it was not his making, but politics is about making creative interventions by muddling through and not reaching out with unguided statements drawn from crass and ghetto mentality.
“Apart from the lawmakers, governors of Benue, Sokoto and Kwara states announced their defections also from the APC to PDP under his watch.
‘’Through Oshiomhole’s pronouncements and actions, Zamfara and Imo governorship crisis were fomented. At the end of the day, APC lost governorship seats in Bauchi, Adamawa, Imo, Oyo, Benue, Sokoto and with court decisions, also in Zamfara and Osun states.
‘’Senator Ndume and Senator Omo-Agege were separately suspended for 90 legislative days in the defence of APC and Buhari administration policy, yet Oshiomhole wants those who have been hand in gloves and partner with senate leadership to sabotaging Buhari’s government be rewarded.”
