Benin City - National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie Oyegun has said that he will not respond to the allegations levelled against him by the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, as regards the governorship primaries of the party in Ondo State until after the governorship election in Edo State.
Oyegun said he would meet with President Muhammadu Buhari before he would fully reply Tinubu, reports Sun
Tinubu in a statement on Sunday called for the immediate resignation of Oyegun
Tinubu according to News 24 accused Oyegun of being a “fraud and a regressive element who cares nothing for the progressive ideas upon which the party was founded and is hell-bent on guiding it into the ditch.”
Speaking in Benin on Monday, Odigie-Oyegun said most of the things said against him were not true.
'Asiwaju is a well respected leader of our party so I cannot be seen speaking evil against him. I have to consult properly with other leaders of the party before we make any definite statement. Again, you know we have a crucial election here in Edo which is my priority right now.
“We don’t want to lose focus and I know Asiwaju also wants us to win because we all have worked hard for this. So may be after the election if there is need I will speak, if no need I will relax. But all I can say now is that most of the things said in the papers about me are not true. I have always believed in internal democracy, that the credibility of primaries must be taken seriously.
