‘Oshiomhole must go’ protest enters 2nd day

Another anti-Oshiomhole protesters Tuesday stormed the All Progressives Congress (APC) national secretariat in Abuja to demand the of the party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. 

The group protested amidst tight security at the party’s national secretariat.

Earlier Monday, the APC Young Forum protested at the party secretariat, calling for the of Oshiomhole as national chairman of the party.

They said Oshiomhole made the party to lose its Bayelsa state governorship victory at the Supreme Court last week, adding that his chairmanship of the party is a curse.

But on Tuesday, another group, the FCT Resident APC Youth group in a bigger protest to the party secretariat in Abuja, demanded that Oshiomhole should rather resign or they will massively abandon the party.

The protesters said the decisions of Oshiomhole on the FCT APC made President Muhammadu Buhari to lose the election in the territory.

Speaking to the media, the leader of the group, Yinusa Ahmadu Yusuf said: “A year ago, l led a protest to this particular gate that led to barricade of this gate. The purpose was to tell the whole world the ways and manner Oshiomhole has been conducting the activities in the APC. This is just the beginning of it but we are capitalising on what we have said about a year ago.  

“Before the election, Oshiomhole had gone to all the states and interfered with the party affairs, including the FCT.  Oshiomhole, because of his activities and interference with the FCT party affairs, that was the reason why President Buhari lost election in FCT. 

“Under his leadership, he has disunited and disorganised the party. He is responsible for so many irregularities that have been going on in the APC that so many of us are aggrieved and to an extent before election we even left the party and lost its structure. I am a good example of somebody who is a party faithful but before election, we were  forced out due to his impunity. We changed our party and worked for another party because we were politically rendered irrelevant.  

“Today, Nigerians particularly are calling on  Oshiomhole who was bestowed with the leadership of this party has now presented himself  as an agent of destruction and therefore we will no longer tolerate it. 

“Oshiomhole, through his body language and behavior, has shown immaturity and inability to lead. Therefore, he deserves not to be our leader from now henceforth.”
