Chief Ovie Onoriode, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, has called for change in national leadership of the APC
According to him, the party could only resolve its internal crises, if Chief John Odigie- Oyegun, the National Chairman, was removed from office.
Chief Onoriode also suggested that Oyegun is replaced with the outgoing Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Onoriode told Vanguard that Governor Oshiomhole was a better politician who will provide an acceptable leadership.
He added that it was wrong for Oyegun to have said that he would do anything to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected in 2019.
“It is against the ideals of the party for the National Chairman to openly shut the door this early against other aspirants”, he said.
Recall that Oyegun had vowed to ensure Buhari contests again in 2019.
“My prayer is that we can get Buhari to re-contest in 2019. We don’t know his mind yet, but I will do anything in my power to ensure that he re-contests in 2019.
“Why? He is the only one who has the courage and moral front to make the changes that the country needs”, Oyegun had stated.
