Ebun Francis || Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the national leader of All Progressive Congress, recently appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari to reconcile aggrieved members of the party has accused the national chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, of sabotage.
Tinubu made the allegation in a seven-page letter written to Oyegun with copies to the president, vice-president, senate president and speaker of the house of representatives and dated February 21, 2018.
Tinubu’s letter read in part, “Disappointment greeted me when I discovered that you had swiftly acted in contravention of the spirit of our discussions. Instead of being a bulwark of support as promised, you positioned yourself in active opposition to the goal of resuscitating the progressive and democratic nature of APC”.
Tinubu also accused Odigie-Oyegun of thwarting his presidential assignment in Kogi, Kaduna and Adamawa states.
He noted, specifically, that Odigie-Oyegun had rushed to Kogi without due consultation with him to unilaterally inaugurate officials “parallel to the officials already heading the state chapter of the party”.
Tinubu said Odigie-Oyegun apparently seeks “to undermine my mandate by engaging in dilatory tactics for the most part. When forced to act, you do so in an arbitrary and capricious manner”.
He directed Odigie-Oyegun to, without delay, “make available to me the status reports and all the pertinent information regarding the state chapters without further delay”
