Abuja – National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, again, visited the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he met behind closed door with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Tinubu had on Oct. 31 paid similar visit to the State House and dismissed the call for the resignation of the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiohmole, saying party supremacy must be respected.
According to the APC national leader, Oshiohmole has so far not violated APC constitution or engaged in any anti-party activity that will warrant his resignation or removal from office.
Tinubu’s comments on Oshiohmole have continued to attract comments from some aggrieved members of the APC including Gov. Rochas Okorocha, who spoke to State House correspondents on Thursday after he met with President Buhari at the State House.
Okorocha, who reacted to Tinubu’s approval of Oshiomhole’s leadership style, opined that Tinubu must have been `ill-informed’.
The governor said the national chairman should be called to order to respect the rule of law, do the right and respect court orders.
Tinubu declined to comment on the matter after his meeting on Friday with the president. (NAN)
