An aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Dr. Tunji Abayomi has faulted the national leader of the party, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his call for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Chief John Oyegun.
Abayomi said Tinubu was wrong to have asked Oyegun to resign because the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party upheld the result of the Ondo State governorship primary election of the party held on September 3, 2016 in Akure.
Speaking with our correspondent in Akure yesterday, Abayomi who also lost out in the race for the party ticket alleged that the Electoral Appeal Committee caused confusion by recommending the conduct of a new primary election.
He said: “For calling for the resignation of the chairman, I think Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is very wrong because he is not a member of the National Working Committee and he cannot speak for the NWC.
‘’He didn’t participate in the entire process and whatever information he has must have been given to him by his agents.
“We heard that there was no voting among the NWC members before they took the decision over the matter contrary to the allegation in his letter to the chairman, and also the position of the party was that there was no voting.
‘’I expect Tinubu as a leader of the party to give credit to the vital opinions on the primary. I am personally disappointed that Asiwaju Tinubu would be determined in his action, that a primary that he promised would be free from undue influence, should be voided by all means. I think he was wrong”.
The APC chieftain declared that “with or without Tinubu’s support, the party would still win the forthcoming governorship election in the state, because it is the people of the state that would decide the election.”
He however maintained that the disagreement between Tinubu and Oyegun would not affect the stability of the party at the national level, submitting that the matter was an internal one which would soon be resolved by the national leadership of the party.
