APC Crisis: Adams Oshiomhole Speaks On NASS Members Defection To opposition Party
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has reportedly met with Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari barely few hours after senators and members of House of Representatives dumped the ruling party.
Recall that no less than 15 senators defected from the APC to join forces with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today Tuesday, July 24.
Similarly, within a few hours after the Senate President Bukola Saraki announced the defection of the Senators, no fewer than 36 members of the House of Representatives also dumped the APC party.
NIGERIA NEWS notes that Oshiomhole while reacting to the massive defection said that he is happy that some members of the Senate and House of Representatives left his party for opposition parties.
Oshiomhole, who spoke with State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, July 24, said those who left were “mercenaries” who were in APC just to win the election.
The party chieftain said the governing party is “not disturbed at all” and that he is not losing sleep over the defections.

In addition, Oshiomhole said it is good that those who never believed in the APC are leaving ahead of the electioneering activities because that would enable the party concentrate on its campaigns.
He said those who defected cannot affect the electoral fortunes of APC because President Muhammadu Buhari got more votes than them in their own constituencies in the last election.
Oshiomhole described the aggrieved members as right-wing politicians who believe in the philosophy of “share the money” and did not belong to the progressives group.
He said even while they were in the APC, they constituted themselves as opposition to the governing party.
In an earlier report, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that Senator Bukola Saraki revealed how he outsmart police, DSS who laid siege to his Abuja home today Tuesday, July 24
Kogi Guber: Yahaya Bello Campaign Director-General Regrets Campaigning For Him
Yahaya Bello failed the first term – Kogi Gubernatorial election comes up November 16, 2019
Dr. Yakubu Ugwolawo begs the Igala people for forgiveness in campaigning for the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello. Dr. Yakubu is the Director-General for the Yahaya Bello campaign group in the year 2015 under the All Progressive Congress, APC, NIGERIA NEWS reports.
He offered the apology statement at the Justice Forum meeting of the APC held in Ankpa.
Besides the fact of regretting his action, he also nullifies himself from campaigning for the incumbent Governor in the election that would be coming up by 16th of November, 2019.
However, he is the one who led about 407 Igala delegates to vote against late Abubakar Audu who happened to be the opposition candidate to Yahaya Bello. Because of the disappointment experienced in the Governor first term, he then, pleaded to the Igala community to forgive him.
He further stated:
“I’m using this medium to apologize to the entire Igala nation for fielding Alhaji Bello in 2015 primary which made him the first runner up to our late leader Prince Abubakar Audu. I regret supporting him. Please forgive me. I regret my action for leading 407 Igala delegates to vote against our own brother. So far, Bello’s performance showed that he does not mean well for our people”.
An APC member, Goodman Akwu express the flaws in the Bello’s administration by stating the following:
“Governor Bello from available records has collected over N335 billion. We have these records from the office of the auditor general and ministry of finance. We also learned that he has hidden a huge amount of money to persecute his re-election bid. So, we must stand against this because his government is anti-people. If I were to be him, I will bow out because he has failed the young generation.
“Bello who happened to be an opportunist worked against the APC when he lost the primary against our late leader. He came into power by accident, and now the State is bleeding since he assumed office. Whoever that is amplifying Bello’s ‘Enemuneme’ slogan from Kogi East is a disappointment to Igala race.”
The following people are presents at the meeting are the former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Sanni Lulu, Yusuf Maiyanga, Mona Audu, and representatives of other aspirants from Kogi East.
