The ruling party, APC, may be in crisis within two years of seizing power as its national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu, is demanding the resignation of the party chairman, Chief John Oyegun, according to a Channels TV report.
In a statement released on Sunday, Senator Tinubu accused Oyegun of sabotaging the will of democracy in Ondo state by overriding the decision of the appeal panel that asked for a fresh governorship primary following investigations that showed that the delegates’ list used had been tampered with.
He went on to say that Oyegun’s action in allegedly subverting the will of the people must have been under the influence of a “powerful and sinister arm at work”.
The former Lagos state governor also alleged that the APC was now under threat of being suffocated by anti-democratic forces pretending to be progressives.
The full statement by the media office of Senator Bola Tinubu, demanding Chief Oyegun’s resignation is published on Channels TV website.
