Oyegun/Tinubu's crisis: APC governors have confidence in Oyegun - Gov. Bello

Oyegun/Tinubu's crisis: APC governors have confidence in Oyegun - Gov. Bello

‎"Instead of being a bulwark of support as promised, you positioned yourself in active opposition to the goal of resuscitating the progressive and democratic nature of APC", Mr. Tinubu said in the letter copied President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the party.

The APC Chairman, who arrived the Presidential Villa at 3pm, left around 3.50 pm, avoiding journalists who were eager to ask him questions.

Recall that President Buhari had assigned Tinubu to bring together aggrieved members of the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Tinubu, in a letter to leaders of the APC, including President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday, had referred to Odidie-Oyegun as a saboteur, who was hindering his efforts in reconciling party members following a presidential assignment.

Tinubu also noted that Odigie-Oyegun allowed the crisis to fester for months until the President appointed him to help resolve them. In this, you have my full support.

Bello also stated that APC governors are backing Buhari for a second term because the president had done well so far and had put fears in state governors about corrupt practices. I wish you the same and pray that our good God keeps you strong and grants you His peace. One, he has done excellently well, secondly, on fighting corruption.

"Consequently, the NWC has set up a three-man committee led by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Segun Oni, to embark on a fact-finding mission to Kaduna State with a view to identifying the remote and immediate causes of the disagreement and the circumstance that led to the demolition of the house of Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi".

Meanwhile, the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has said that state governors elected on the platform of the ruling APC and majority of the party members have confidence in Odigie-Oyegun. Given your assessment, these were states where I believed cooperation between you and I should have been intense and detailed. So, corruption is reduced to the barest minimum. And if you look at it critically, the governors themselves, who naturally have immunity, we are very careful because you know that Mr. President is incorruptible. So, we are careful about that. "So we want Mr. President to continue to lead the way so that we can follow and Nigerians will have the dividends of democracy".

He said Buhari was still consulting with Nigerians and would love to hear from citizens before taking a decision on the 2019 presidential election.
