*Conclude He Is Incapable Of Containing Crises In Ruling Party

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie Oyegun is on his way out of office amid reports that some top echelon of the party has started pushing for his ouster.

Oyegun has been fingered as the root cause of the crises in APC, amid allegations that he has not been forceful in exerting the position of the party over the National Assembly members.

Members of APC have been accusing Oyegun of secretly fraternizing with Senator Bukola Saraki, while pretending to be in support of the candidates of the party for the National Assembly elections.

The governors had reportedly paid a surprised visit to Oyegun at the party’s national secretariat on Tuesday after their meeting with president Mohammadu Buhari and had told him in a closed door to resign.

The list of the governors  included Comrade Adams Oshiomhole (Edo), Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Mallam Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Abubakar Sani Bello (Niger) Senator Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi) and Abubuakar Badaru (Jigawa).
