Convener of the group, Gbenga Bojuwomi, who led protesters to the national secretariat of the party in Abuja, claimed that four governors and several party chieftains were sponsoring AA.

He cited governors Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo, Rochas Okorocha Imo, Kayode Fayemi of Ondo and Ibikunle Amosu of Ogun state.

Bojuwomi also included the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, and former National Legal Adviser, Muiz Banire as sponsors.

He claimed that they recently held secret meetings in Akure, where they strategised on how to achieve their selfish goals.

He disclosed that at the parley, Ondo and Imo states were picked as pilot bodies to test-run the party.

The convener urged the Department of State Services (DSS), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to investigate what he called “financial mobilisation for AA in Ondo and Imo states.

He said: “Akeredolu had directed all APC members in Ondo State, who are loyal to him to mobilise for AA and work against President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming general elections.

“Furthermore, there was a revelation from the stakeholders meeting held in Akure sometime in September, where Akeredolu specifically told the party members that he would fight three enemies in the APC to actualise Fashola’s 2023 presidential ambition.

According to him, the three personalities to fight are President Buhari, Bola Tinubu and Adams Oshiomhole.
