A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Chief Ovie Onoriode, has called for a change in national leadership of the party.


According to him, APC could only resolve its internal crises, if National Chairman, Chief John Odigie- Oyegun was removed from office.

Onoriode also suggested that Oyegun be replaced with the outgoing Edo State governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

He told Vanguard that Oshiomhole was a better politician who will provide an acceptable leadership.

Onoriode added that it was wrong for Oyegun to have said that he would do anything to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected in 2019.

“It is against the ideals of the party for the National Chairman to openly shut the door this early against other aspirants”, the APC member said. “My prayer is that we can get Buhari to re-contest in 2019. We don’t know his mind yet, but I will do anything in my power to ensure that he re-contests in 2019.

“Why? He is the only one who has the moral front and the courage to make the changes that Nigeria needs”, he had stated.
