The Progressives Governors Forum on Wednesday, asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman Adams Oshiomhole to convene a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to address the party’s internal crisis or step down from his position.
This comes a day after the Edo state chapter of APC passed a vote of no confidence on Oshiomhole and removed him with immediate effect, accusing him of being the mastermind behind the party’s challenges.
In a statement made by the Progressives Governor Forum Director-General, Salihu Mohammed Lukman, he said “it is either Comrade Oshiomhole respect the provision of the party constitution and convene superior organ meeting to deliberate on all our challenges, or he should just accept his inability to manage the party and simply resign,” .
“In the current circumstance, nothing short of a NEC or National Caucus meeting of the party can resolve all our increasing organizational challenges as a party.”
“What legacy is Comrade Oshiomhole hoping to achieve as a National Chairman by running the party in a way that suggests almost zero commitment to issues of party development?,” Lukman queried further.
“The APC National Working Committee (NWC) headed by Oshiomhole has become a shadow of itself after losing members to appointment into government offices and controversial suspensions,” he stated.
