Those fighting Oshiomhole are enemies of Buhari, says lawmaker

The lawmaker representing Etsako Constituency in the House of Representatives Hon. Johnson Oghuma, has said that those fighting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, were enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Honorable Oghuma said some governors are working with the opposition People’s Democratic Party to tear the APC apart ahead of the 2019 general election.

Oghuma who spoke to newsmen at a press briefing said the wicked plot against Oshiomhole would fail.

He described as untrue allegations of financial inducement by some aspirants against Comrade Oshiomhole

Oghuma lampooned Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, for creating crisis in the party over the lost bid to impose his son in-law as his successor.

He reminded Governor Rochas that there is no sole proprietor of the APC.

“It is surprising that people called leaders of our party will allow opposition to be manipulating them the same way some of our governors will allow opposition to be remoting them even in the national Assembly to be working against the party that brought them to the house only for them to cross -carpet.

“It is sad that this same people are propagating fake news and our people are helping them. An organization where everybody is a leader cannot stand the test of time. It is high time we allow our leader elected to lead the party.

“Everybody cannot be Chairman of the party at the same time. Those elected to run our party should be given free hand to do.  Oshiomhole was elected Governor for eight years and he showed good and purposeful leadership.

“I am a candidate and it is untrue that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole collected money from anybody. Oshiomhole that I know cannot take bribe. He is a man of integrity. Okorocha and his likes are the problem of our party. He is not the owner of APC, the party belongs to all.

“Majority of our party members are not complaining. A situation where an individual will convert all political positions in his state to family members is strange and unacceptable to our APC.

“We will resist any attempt to remove him from office. We challenge Okorocha to tell Nigerians his contribution to the emergence of Buhari in 2015 even as a sitting governor.  As we speak majority of his assembly members have gone to pick ticket in other parties”.
