Aggrieved members are looking for who to blame for their Woes- APC
In an interview in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary for the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, claimed that Amosun was aggrieved because his attempt to impose a candidate on the people, using autocratic means Failed.
Lanre Issa-Onilu stated that,“If we speak to the merit of this case, the Ogun State governor –the whole world saw it, the visuals were everywhere where he gathered some aspirants, stakeholders and said clearly, there won’t be primaries and right there he pointed at whom the next governor would be.”
“In the case of Ogun, after that exercise failed after they tried to handpick who will be what, they sent a letter that they had agreed on direct primary and the party had no choice but to endorse what you want.
“On the day they all came for screening, including the governor, suddenly they left other aspirants and returned to Abeokuta, gathered some people and sent back to the National Working committee that they wanted indirect primary and the other aspirants said we were all here together, that they didn’t know when this change was made.
“The governor has done his best to get validation for this self-help. That is not possible. The first thing he did was to start saying things that made it look like something wrong has happened when nothing of such has happened.
“Secondly, he took certain monarchs, some traditional rulers from Ogun State to come and meet the president. I am surprised because someone like him, with due respect to him, should have understood the nature of the president we have, that no matter how close you are to him, he will listen to you but he will ask for the road to be followed.
“So, the problem he has is that, he was looking for whom to blame and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Aremo Segun Osoba readily came under attack and he blamed them for that,” Issa-Onilu said.
According to report, the party stated that some of the governors, including Osita Okechukwu, VON DG, are against the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, because of their inability to have their way during the exercise.
APC made a claim that they are looking for who to blame for their Woes.
