Buhari, Osinbajo, Tinubu shun Ondo APC rally

11 November 2016, 07:59

Akure - President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress,  Bola Tinubu boycotted the Ondo State governorship rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akure, on Thursday.

The rally was also shunned by all the party's governors in the South-West, except Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, reports Punch.

The absence of the President and other national party leaders was not unconnected with the leadership crisis that had been rocking the party in the past few months.

The rally, which was held at the Democracy Park, Akure, was however, attended by the National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun and some federal ministers.

Tinubu has opposed to the candidacy of Rotimi Akeredolu, the party’s flagbearer for the November 26 election.

He had publicly accused the Oyegun of manipulating party’s primary process in favour of Akeredolu and against his preferred candidate, Olusegun Abraham.

Tinubu had also demanded the removal of Oyegun, over what he called the latter’s anti-democratic handling of the  party affairs.
