First Lady, Aisha Buhari and majority of the governors elected of the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have withdrawn their support for the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and are plotting to oust him from office.
As a start, Aisha has blocked Mr. Oshiomhole from accessing the President’s residence in the Aso Villa, Abuja.
She was said to have insisted that Oshiomhole should rather hold meetings with her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his office.
A source told Daily Post that Aisha’s action was in reaction to recent developments in the ruling party.
“She too has lost out in the scheme of things. She also insists Oshiomhole has an overbearing attitude.
“Things were a bit better under Oyegun (former APC chairman), because he was more diplomatic in his approach”.
Recall that earlier this month, Aisha blasted the APC after her brother, Mr. Mahmood Halilu Ahmed, lost the Adamawa governorship ticket of APC to Governor Bindow.
In a post on her social media page, she condemned what she saw as impunity in the APC.
She had said: “It is disheartening to note that some aspirants used their hard earned money to purchase nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously yet found their names omitted on Election Day, these forms were bought at exorbitant prices.
“Many others contested and yet had their result delayed. Fully knowing that AUTOMATIC tickets have been given to other people.
“All Progressives Congress being a party whose cardinal principle is change and headed by a comrade/activist whose main concern is for the common man, yet, such impunity could take place under its watch.”
Meanwhile, 15 of 21 governors of the party are reportedly collecting signatures to convene a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting that would unseat the national chairman.
According to reports, the governors, some of whom lost out at the party’s primaries would be coming Abuja on Tuesday to finalise the plan.
They accused the APC Chairman of working against them.
Mr. Oshiomhole had recently alleged that some top party members of planning to remove him.
