APC Crisis: Buhari Reportedly Walks Out On Oshiomhole As He Escapes Impeachment 3

President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly walked out on the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, who escaped impeachment after getting a vote of confidence during a rowdy session of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.

During the NEC meeting that was held at APC’s secretariat in Abuja on Friday, November 22, 2019, Oshionhole got a vote of confidence and survived the impeachment threat hanging over his head.

However, The Sun reports that President Buhari walked out on Oshiomhole because the meeting became rowdy.

The meeting, which was the shortest ever, appeared tensed when anti and pro-Oshiomhole protesters grounded the activities along the road leading to the party’s national secretariat, resulting in security agents firing teargas to disperse the protesters.

Although, Oshiomhole’s arch-rival and governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, was present at the meeting, every effort to stop the Edo State chairman, Anslem Ojezua, from entering the meeting venue was thwarted by other chairmen that complained and threatened to walk out of the meeting.

Interestingly, no decision was taken on the suspended members of the party like the immediate past governors of Imo and Ogun states, Rochas Okorocha and Ibikunle Amosun among others who were incidentally absent at the meeting.

It was also revealed during the meeting that the shortfall in the funds generated to finance the 2019 presidential election almost denied President Muhammadu Buhari re-election.

Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported that Oshiomhole was also suspended by the APC in Edo State over his role in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.

The decision followed the vote of no confidence passed on Comrade Oshiomhole by the Chairmen of the APC in the 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Edo State.
