Protesters demand Oyegun's removal

Protesters demand Oyegun's removal”

Sule Lamido, former governor of Jigawa state, says the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) reaped from the evil of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The placards had several demands including: "Audit APC account now", "No to non-elective convention", "APC must support anti-corruption", among others.

It was learnt that the protesters had also attempted to block Oyegun's convoy from gaining entrance into the party secretariat but chose to allow him after much persuasion by security agents around.

However, speaking with journalists, leader of the protesters, Peter Oyewole said; "Since 2015, the budget of APC has not been made public".

Another youths group within the party under the auspices of APC Youths Solidarity Forum said the party should find ways of improving its finances.

On the recent accolades poured on former President Goodluck Jonathan by the immediate past Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, Adeyeye said Jonathan's decision to concede defeat in 2015 helped in deepening democracy in the country.

The group under the aegis of Save APC and Democracy Youth Vanguard (SADEMVA), stormed the Blantyre street headquarters of the ruling Party and would have disrupted the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting scheduled to hold at the place but for the change of venue.

The protesters expressed disappointment that the NEC meeting earlier scheduled to hold at the party's national headquarters was moved elsewhere. We demand the removal of Oyegun now.

"If they can not lead, they should quit and we take over", said Lamido. In any party, where there is imposition, there can not be fairness, any party where there is imposition, there can not be equity.

"So, the current National chairman we are having in APC can not work in support of APC agenda and President Buhari". There have been alleged schemes to remove the Party's National Chairman from office because of his perceived loyalty to Mr President.

"If Odigie-Oyegun is not removed within the next one month, the APC youth will picket this national secretariat and make it a "no go area" to everybody, staff, the officials and even the security staff will be chased out". Mr. Abdullahi did not pick or return calls made to him on the matter.
