All Progressive Congress Youth Vanguard (APCYV) has accused the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole of masterminding the protest against the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. John Odigie-Oyegun.
In a statement by the Director, Organisation/Strategy, Comrade Emmanuel Oronsaye, the group alleged that the Presidency was aware of Oshiomhole’s pretence which had guided it from appointing him into its cabinet.
Oronsaye said “We watched with consternation – the stage managed protest against Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on the 30th of October, 2017 at the instance of no less an anti-Benin elements singlehandedly led by Adams Oshiomhole, whose questionable leadership as the APC caucus leader in Edo State, has fragmented the party.
“Let us place on record that APC as a party is yet to arrive its ideologically wired end, it naturally has in it’s fold a lot of pretenders, and Mr. Oshiomhole is shamelessly one of them. This is well known to the Presidency, which we are sure is responsible for the refusal to appoint him the least relevant position of a Junior Special Assistant to the President.
“We are aware that he has blamed Chief Oyegun and vowed to vent his furry on Chief Oyegun. This is absolutely miscalculated, because, the man (Oyegun) has no hand whatsoever in Oshiomhole’s stunted rise to presidential relevance.”
The group described the former governor of Edo State as a mole in the APC who frustrated the President’s presidential ambition in 2011.
“As a national forum, we have ransacked the whole administrative architecture of our great party – from Asuwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Lagos, to Sen. Bukola Saraki of Kwara State, it is clear that Adams Oshiomhole is a mole in APC, and having frustrated Buhari 3rd time bid for the Presidency in 2011, he has boasted that he will do it again by working with a certain leading PDP presidential aspirant to cause disaffection in our party discretely.
“We have no doubt whatsoever that Oshiomhole will fall flat politically, and he should know that his lack of Primary six School Leaving Certificate has a consequential effect on his cerebellum, and he cannot fit into the meeting of cerebral APC leadership. Enough of his rabo rousing shenanigans.”
Passing a vote of confidence on the Party National Chairman, Oronsaye said “Considering the role we played to salvage the state for APC that was at brink of loosing to the People’s Democratic Party, we are firmly in support of the current leadership of the APC led by His Excellency – Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the current APC chairman piloted the scheme that obliterated the strong opposition that was foist on the state due to the harsh and inhuman leadership quality of the immediate governor of the state, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole.
“In recognition of his patriotic role, anyone who has anything against Oyegun’s style of leadership must approach it through the appropriate channels of communication, and dispute reconciliation because he has demonstrated absolute understanding of local and national politics. We are happy with the overwhelming support for his continued leadership of our great Party by diverse people who believe in decent and productive politics.”
