The APC Chairman & His Haters
The National Chairman of the APC has raised an alarm about a plot against him by unnamed party stakeholders. He said some high-ranking party stakeholders including some close associates of President Muhammadu Buhari and other governors were plotting to ease him out.
He said, these people were uncomfortable with his positive party reforms i.e they are enemies of progress.
Example of one these haters is the former APC presidential candidate Alhaji Mumakai Unagha, who was quoted saying that the APC would not win the 2019 general elections with Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman.
APC Chairman to the Haters:
Oshiomhole said the APC National Working Committee under his leadership was working tirelessly towards repositioning the party towards achieving greater successes.
He said, “The totality of Unagha’s claims, without necessarily addressing them one after the other, tallies with cooked-up narratives being sponsored by some influential stakeholders in their respective states that Comrade Oshiomhole is responsible for all the problems in the APC at the moment.
“These influential stakeholders, according to the grapevine, have begun to mobilise to pass a no-confidence vote in the leadership of Oshiomhole, having failed to impose their preferred candidates on the party in the nomination process.”
Asides, from this Alhaji, there are other members of the party grumbling about the leadership of Adams Oshimole.
Do you think Oshimole is doing a great job has the APC Chairman?
Shehu Sani Leaves the APC
The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, who resigned his membership from the ruling All Progressives Congress has assured his supporters of contesting in the forthcoming election.
Sani who assured his supporters of not quitting politics on his Facebook page on Sunday said he would announce his new political party in two days time (Tuesday).
He said, “This is to thank all my supporters and friends for the show of solidarity and assurances of support over my decision to exit the APC.
“I assure you that in the next two days you will be informed of my new party. And be rest assured I will contest in the upcoming elections Insha Allah.”
However, it remains unclear which political party Sani would join, and which position he plans to contest.
Sani had on Saturday announced his resignation from the APC after the party put forward Uba Sani, an ally of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, as its candidate for the constituency.
The Senator in a letter dated October 19 and addressed to the chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, did not give reasons for his action.
Labour Union Strike
The Nigeria Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress and the United Labour Congress have threatened to go on strike on November 6, 2018, if the Federal Government fails to take the plight of Nigerian workers more seriously.
Specifically, the labour unions said if the upward review of the national minimum wage was not acceded to by the governors and the Federal Government, they would have no other option but to go on strike.
OYE: I do not think these people care about the masses
