A fresh report by Saharareporters has given reasons why the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, might be sacked today.
Victor Giadom is set to hold a National Executive Committee meeting today, with the Senator Abiola Ajimobi-led National Working Committee (NWC), set to boycott it.
President Buhari is reportedly going to attend the meeting, and there are reports that the NEC has perfected plans to remove Adams Oshiomhole from the fold at a meeting.
A reliable source told Saharareporters that many APC governors had withdrawn their support for Oshiomhole considering the cracks in the party.
According to the media outlet, some of the misdemeanour of Oshiomhole, which the NEC may consider includes his inability to convene NEC meetings once in three months as stipulated by Article 35 of the party’s constitution.
That Oshiomhole, it was gathered, had only convened NEC meetings twice since 2018 – a gross violation of the party’s laws.
It was also gathered that he had been paying every member of the National Working Committee N2m each monthly as against the dictates of the party’s constitution.
The source also disclosed that Oshiomhole has not given a proper account of the funds realised during the 2019 general elections, a move which has angered some top members of the APC.
The media outlet also further stated that their finding revealed that Abiola Ajimobi, who was favoured to act as National Chairman after a court ordered the removal of Oshiomhole recently, was not a product of convention.
He was nominated from South-West to replace Otunba Niyi Adebayo, who got a ministerial appointment.
The source added that a caretaker committee may be set up with the mandate of piloting the affairs of the party and organising a convention.
