According to Sahara Reporters, The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole have come under heavy criticism as the North-East Youth Wing of the ruling party has just raised some concerns on his “crass and ghetto mentality”.
The secretary of the organisation, Abubakar Maigari, had on Thursday issued a statement stating that behaviour of the National Chairman could eventually lead to collapse of the party.
The youth body further noted that certain threats which were made by the APC National Chairman and the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, to chase away any member of the National Assembly who were opposed to the imposition agenda of the duo is “appalling”.
The APC Zonal Youth, Abuja chapter, as well pointed out that leadership of the duo of Tinubu and Oshiomhole has ended up creating confusion which eventually led to the loss of some states to the opposition in the 2019 elections.
The statement 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.”
