Nobody can force Oyegun out of office as national chairman – APC chieftain
A chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, Chief Francis Inegbeniki, has warned that no amount of calls by some leaders of the party can remove Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, from office, Vanguard reports.
This is coming after Chief Bola Tinubu publicly called for the resignation of Oyegun for allegedly abusing his office in favour of the APC gubernatorial candidate in Ondo – Rotimi Akeredolu.
Inegbeniki, in a statement, yesterday in Warri, on behalf of “APC Disciples in Edo,” said, “It is unfortunate that our national leader, whom we all respect so much and Timi Frank, have asked Oyegun to resign from office, without disclosing the offence that he committed to warrant his resignation.
“Our national leader’s anger against Oyegun is related to the just concluded Ondo State APC governorship primaries, while Timi Frank’s an National Chairman APC, anger is the unfortunate crisis rocking the National Assembly.
Oyegun is not the cause of the crisis in the National Assembly and cannot take decision alone without other members of the National Working Committee.
“Oyegun was not an aspirant in the Ondo APC primaries, so, it is unnecessary for anyone to direct his anger at Oyegun. It is not fair to put all the blames on him. Nobody should use Oyegun as the sacrificial lamb.
“We are therefore, calling on the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and members of the National Working Committee to call Timi Frank to order.”
