A group of protesters has stormed the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Abuja demanding the removal of the national chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
The protesters who claimed the party has lost more states under Oshiomole’s leadership, the recent being Bayelsa state, are demanding the immediate removal of the APC national chairman.
The group under the aegis of Concerned APC Youths carried various placards with inscriptions calling for Oshiomhole’s sack.
One of the leaders of the protesters, Agricola Ejembi told journalists that the group is appealing to President Muhuammadu Buhari to intervene in the affairs of the party in order to arrest what they claim to be the dwindling fortunes of the party under Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the party.
“Whenever I have had cause to lead a demonstration or participate in one, we have always written to the police for protection, not for permit. And I must confess, so far, I have not had any case where we have been told not to demonstrate. The only time, I think, was last year when Professor Soyinka and I were supposed to address a meeting and the police said it won’t take place; I said no, call the authorities, this is the right we have fought for and won. And in fairness to them, we were allowed to have the program.
“What is particularly embarrassing is that on the 20th of November 2014, the Presidential Candidate of the APC, General Muhammadu Buhari, now President Muhammadu Buhari, the then APC Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, two current Ministers, Dr. Sylvester Onu and Rotimi Amaechi, led others to demonstrate in Abuja against insecurity in the country, and they were more than 2,000. Heavens did not fall and heavens will not fall this time around.”
