    Chief John Oyegun, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been venomously attacked by youths of the Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    Buhari Oyegun There are speculation that leaders of the APC are trying to sideline Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the party’s affairs.

    The Nation reports that the youths under the aegis of Progressive Youth Leagues (PYL), have accused Chief Odigie-Oyegun, of betraying their confidence in him. According to a statement made yesterday, October 11, by their spokesman Adeleke Abdulhakeem, the youths accused the APC chairman of fooling Nigerians with his response to the statement by APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

    The statement reads: “Last Friday (October 7), the National Chairman of APC, Pa. Oyegun, responded to the allegations levelled against him by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. But, sadly after about a fortnight, Pa. Oyegun could not come up with clear, detailed and cogent statements or even accept the fact that he made a grievous mistake.
    He tried to refute those allegations with his well articulated ‘facts’ but in a truthful sense what he called ‘the facts’ are actually the fallacies.

    “Perusing Pa.Oyegun’s response to the allegations levelled against him by Asiwaju, a lot of fabricated and specious statements were uncovered and these have successfully aroused questions that only Pa. Oyegun can entertain.

    “Pa Oyegun claimed that he did not use prayer interlude to secretly excuse himself from the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting for the purpose of submitting Rotimi Akeredolu’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the fact is he left the meeting after he vetoed the Appeal Committee’s recommendation. Come to think of it: the primaries took place on September 3.

    Why did the party wait till September 19 before holding the meeting that ended on September 22, the last day for the submission of the party’s candidate?

    “Pa Oyegun even brushed aside brilliant suggestion by the National Youth Leader, Dasuki Jalo, that the party should submit an interim name to INEC, pending the time a political solution would be found to the matter.

    This singular suggestion by the National Youth Leader would have saved the party from the crisis it is experiencing.

    “Pa Oyegun fallaciously said: ‘Voting on the issue became unnecessary and never took place in view of the NWC’s rejection of the Appeal Committee’s report.’ But the Southsouth Vice Chairman Eta Hilliard has relayed the true picture of what transpired in the Ondo primaries by saying in a report: ‘(At) that meeting, there were two reports before the NWC: that of the Appeal Committee was voted on.’

    Meanwhile, the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) continues unabated as some members of the party’s national working committee (NWC) have concluded plans to demand for the resignation of the APC national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun.

    The Sun reports that that revolt against Oyegun follows his alleged role in the party’s Ondo governorship primary that saw the nomination given to Rotimi Akeredolu as the party’s governorship candidate.

    The party’s deputy national publicity secretary, Timi Frank, told the Sun that the aggrieved members will demand Oyegun’s resignation during the meeting over the handling of Ondo primaries which is on slated for Monday, October 10 or Wednesday, October 12
