How Adams Oshiomhole Destroyed APC

Oshiomhole

Former minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said the dictatorship style of Adams Oshiomhole has destroyed the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News reports that Shittu had earlier called for the resignation of the former Edo State governor.

Speaking to newsmen on Thursday, the former minister described Oshiomhole as a dictator who doesn’t take advice and doesn’t seek one.

He advised the former Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) leader to resign in order to avert humiliating the party in the 2023 general elections.

Shittu said: “I am aware that God hates injustice and fights for the weak.

“To contest any position in Nigeria, there is nowhere it is stipulated in the constitution that you must have an NYSC discharge certificate.

“To tell you the mischief our party’s national chairman and his cohort did, Dapo Abiodun, now governor of Ogun State never served, the immediate past Oyo governor, Ajimobi, did not also serve and I can mention a whole lot of others.

“It is the same Oshiomhole who denied me the opportunity to contest the party primary that cleared Ajimobi for Senate and Abiodun for the governorship. These double standard will never be certainly allowed by God.”

Speaking further on why he joined those calling for Oshiomhole’s resignation, he said: “I am hard on him because he has come to destroy our party. How do you justify a national chairman who took over at the time the party controlled 26 states but we have lost about five to six states to the opposition.

“If it were in a civilised clime, Oshiomhole should have resigned now because he is a failure and does not have the capacity to run a civilised political party.”
