You cannot sack me, Oyegun dares Tinubu

05 October 2016, 11:05

Abuja - All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, has said that he cannot be removed from office on the pages of newspapers by the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, Vanguard reports.

Oyegun made the statement a day after shaking hands with Tinubu at the launch of a book on President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Speaking to State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Odigie-Oyegun also said that APC’s victory in the Edo State governorship election showed that the masses were still very supportive of President Buhari, despite the difficult economic situation in the country.

Odigie-Oyegun’s visit to the President was against the background of the public spat between the two party leaders arising from alleged differences in the conduct of the Ondo State governorship primary of the party won by Rotimi Akeredolu.

He stated that it was only the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that would upturn the victory of Akeredolu.

“What happened is in the report of the chairman of the primaries committee. It is only INEC that can make U-turn on Ondo,” he said.

He also dismissed speculations that he imported youths to protest against Tinubu at APC secretariat in Abuja.

Tinubu, had demanded the removal of the party’s National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, over what he called the latter’s anti-democratic handling of the  party affairs according to News24.

Tinubu made this demand in a scathing statement entitled, “Oyegun’s Ondo fraud: The violation of democracy in the APC,” released by the Tinubu Media Office last month.
