According to The Nation, Fayemi visited Buhari on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, in order to win the president over to Giadom, who has been laying claim to being acting national chairman of the APC.

It was also gathered Fayemi wanted Giadom to see Buhari to get endorsement for the emergency National Executive Council (NEC) he summoned.

However, the duo couldn’t see the president despite their spirited attempts. They only met his Chief of Staff, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, who insisted Buhari had closed for work.

Fayemi, who is chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), is one of those opposing the suspended acting national chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole.

KanyiDaily had reported that the APC has been embroiled in a leadership crisis following the appeal court ruling that upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the party.

On Tuesday, Giadom had announced that he has taken over the leadership of the party after Oshiomhole’s suspension, dismissing the party’s announcement of the former Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi, as acting chairman.

However, the national working committee of the APC overruled him and appointed Hillard Eta, vice chairman of the party (south-south), to stand in place for Ajimobi who was “unavoidably absent”.
