A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Kingsley Wenenda Wali, has blamed the suspended National Chairman of the ruling party, for the Leadership crisis rocking the party, asking him to take full responsibility, adding that, “we should never have an Oshiomhole to run any party”,
Wali, who made the declaration when he appeared on a live television programme monitored in Port Harcourt, stated also that it will be difficult for the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, to be defeated in the September election in the State, by the APC Governorship Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
He said: It will be difficult to win Governor Godwin Obaseki in Edo State, considering the tendencies behind him. The APC under Adams Oshiomhole got it wrong, by pushing Obaseki away.
“Adams (Oshiomhole) must take full responsibility for the crisis in APC. We should never have an Oshiomhole to run any party, he has no business managing a political party.”
The APC Chieftain wondered why some members of the National Working Committee, NWC, would oppose a meeting approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the National Leader of the party.
Wali added: “The problem we have in our political space, is that most people who claim to be Politicians are not Politicians, because I do not know how you said you are a Politician, yet you are afraid discussing issues. You should be able to go to anywhere people are gathered, to discuss your issues.
“Let us assume that Chief Victor Giadom is not the authentic National Chairman of APC, let us even assume that he does not have the right to call for NEC meeting. Why do we have problem with NEC meeting. The NEC is the biggest organ of the party.
“Do not forget the issue we have in APC, is the struggle for space and political power between members of the National Working Committee. The way the NWC is presently constituted, there is a lot of question marks on some people.”
