Immediate past communications minister, Barr. Adebayo Shittu has said the call for the removal of the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was a welcome development.
Deputy national chairman, North Senator Lawan Shuaibu on Tuesday demanded the resignation of his boss.
Senator Shuaibu in the letter addressed to the former Edo state governor, entitled, “APC: its Fortunes VS Misfortunes: Time to Act, ” he accused the latter of running the party without recourse to other members of the party national working committee.
He equally pointed fingers of scorn at Oshiomhole over the crises and attendant litigations that trailed the conduct of the party primaries and particularly blamed the former over the recent misfortune that befell the APC in Zamfara State.
Speaking with newsmen on Thursday, Shittu said all well-meaning members of the ruling party must show more than passing interest in the administration of the APC under Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as he noted that the party fortunes have nosedived.
He said: “I endorse it. The truth is, with Oshiomhole, this party would go down by the time President Muhammadu Buhari finishes. Oshiomhole is full of himself and he has an ego problem and he wants to dominate every environment and democracy is not like that. I know that many of us are conscionable members of the party who think of the future of this party and the fact that this party should continue to be relevant even after President Muhammad Buhari has left the office. We are concerned and everything that we can do to force him out, we will do it.”
