APC youths query Oshiomhole’s sincerity in Buhari’s re-election
Progressives Youth Movement has raised concerns over the sincerity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, to the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC youth group stated in Abuja yesterday that some actions of the national chairman that tend to undermine the electoral chances of Buhari kept them thinking whether the chairman was a mole as alleged in some quarters.
“We view with concern the threat by Comrade Oshiomhole to report political parties, other than the APC, who are adopting and campaigning for President Buhari ahead of the 2019 elections,” according to the statement signed by the chairman, Usa Abdullahi, and secretary, Udo Akpandem.
“We had expected the national chairman to be happy that other political parties are adopting President Buhari and campaigning for his re-election. It is illogical that a party chairman would be unhappy that other parties are campaigning for his presidential candidate.
“With his present stance, Comrade Oshiomhole is demonstrating that fighting his personal war against some perceived adversaries is more important to him than the successful election of Buhari for a second term.
“We see a contrast in the stance of Comrade Oshiomhole and the posture of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is encouraging members of other political parties through the platform of Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) to adopt and campaign for its presidential candidate,” it stated.
The group called on the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC to call Oshiomhole to order before the prosecution of his personal fights undermines the chances of the party in the 2019 elections.
“The national chairman has been allowed to run the party in his own fashion for too long without caution, and this is already affecting the perception of the party by well-meaning members of the public. We call on the NEC of the party to convene and call Oshiomhole to order before he does irreparable damage to the electoral fortunes of the party in 2019,” it added.
