An All Progressives (APC) chieftain, Yekini Nabena, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, as the party’s leader, to intervene in the hostilities between the party’s immediate past National chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, and its current national chairman Adams Oshiomole,.
He made the call in a statement in Abuja, in reaction to the ongoing war of words between Odigie-Oyegun and Oshiomole.
following the party’s challenges in Zamfara and some other states of the federation resulting from its mode of primaries ahead of the 2019 general elections, Oshiomole and Odigie-Oyegun had been engaged in blame trade.
This particularly followed the upturning of the party’s electoral victory in Zamfara by the Supreme Court, and the losses it suffered in some states it previously controlled.
However, Nabena who is also the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, said the war of words between Odigie-Oyegun and Oshiomole, was unnecessary, describing the development as a distraction that could weaken the party.
