Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) has deepened following the interrogation of the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Department of Security Services (DSS).
Governors in support of Oshiomhole were reportedly rebuking two of their southern colleagues Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and his Ogun State counterpart, Governor Ibikunle Amosun who reportedly orchestrated the national chairman’s interrogation.
According to Vanguard, a source claimed that the governors fumed that two of their colleagues want to melt the party because of their interests.
However, the national publicity secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, claimed ignorance of the interrogation.
He said: “We do not have any information on this rumour. More so, the Chairman is not around in the country to confirm or deny this. As soon as we have any relevant information, you’ll be updated.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Oshiomhole had on Monday, October 22, dismidssed as untrue the reported gang-up by APC governors against his leadership of the party.
The APC national chairman, in a statement alleged that conservatives within the party are ganging up to pass a vote of no-confidence in him.
He said his sin was his refusal to allow continued impunity and circumvention of due process being perpetuated in some states. He also said he was not surprised by the gang up, as he never had the illusion that the process of reforming the party was going to be an easy one.
