Depu6ty National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), (south), Senator Lawal Shuaibu has described the party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as a failure.
Asking Oshiomhole to resign his position in the party, Shuaibu said the APC National Chairman has no reason to continue leading the party.
This is coming after the party lost Zamfara state to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following the Supreme Court ruling nullifying the primaries that produced candidates of the party for the 2019 general election.
In a 6 page letter addressed to Oshiomhole, Shuaibu said, “It is my honest opinion that your ability to ensure this party flourishes is deficient as you lack the necessary composure and you also don’t possess the capabilities and the requisite experience to run a political party.
“The respect was commanding among its members and sympathizers have been completely eroded, while the goodwill has equally evaporated with the type of attitude of threats to members you deploy, including senior members like Governor’s, Senators, Ministers and other Government officials whose functions do not fall within your jurisdiction.”
Shuaibu said, “In advance democracies, people who fail to add value or build over and above what they met on assumption of duty show some civilized example, they honourably bow out.”
“In that connection, therefore, I want to advise you to take the path of honour, to step aside and allow the Party to embark on the onerous task of reconstruction and rehabilitation in those States”
“it was weakened by the effect of manner the last primary election exercises were conducted or even the task of recreating the party where it is on the path of extinction, arising from the loss of a sitting APC Government, for example in Zamfara State, where you directly personally created the problem leading to the painful complete loss of APC’s electoral fortunes”
“FROM UP TO DOWN I All these are uncontestable facts. You cannot exonerate yourself from blame on what happened to APC Zamfara State, thereby destroying the hopes and aspirations of 534,541 APC members and supporters, including my good self!”
