Protesters Storm APC National Secretariat, Demand Oyegun’s Removal As Party Chair
Protesters underthe aegis of “Save APC and Democracy youth Vanguard” on Monday, stormed the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, demanding the removal of the party’s chairman, Chief John Oyegun.
A leader of the group, Peter Oyewole, alleged that since the APC won the presidential election in 2015, the party’s financial records had not been audited and made public as required by law.
“Since 2015, the budget of APC has not been made public. Since 2015, the ruling party has not held a single meeting. These are enough to remove the National Chairman. We demand the removal of Oyegun now.
“We are also saying ‘enough is enough’ of imposition of candidates at all levels by Oyegun-led NWC that is currently going on in this party. In any party, where there is imposition, there cannot be fairness, any party where there is imposition, there cannot be equity. The imposition in APC today is just rubbishing the anti-corruption war of President Buhari.
The protesters, who alleged that Mr. Oyegun was corrupt, said he must be removed for peace to reign.
“If Odigie-Oyegun is not removed within the next one month, the APC youth will picket this national secretariat and make it a ‘no go area’ to everybody, staff, the officials and even the security staff will be chased out.”
