Tinubu Accuses Oyegun Of Sabotaging Reconciliation Moves

High-ranking member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has penned a letter to National Chairman of the party John Odigie-Oyegun, accusing him of sabotage.

It was gathered that the former Lagos state Governor had copied the president, vice-president, senate president and speaker of the house of representatives in the letter, accusing Odigie-Oyegun of going contrary to the discussions of the party.

In the letter, which is dated February 21, 2018, the former governor of Lagos state said he is “disappointment greeted me when I discovered that you had swiftly acted in contravention of the spirit of our discussions.

“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.”

Tinubu said while Odigie-Oyegun mentioned Kogi, Kaduna, Kano and Adamawa as having serious crises, “you have taken it as your own personal ambition to thwart my presidential assignment in these key states.”

He accused the chairman of rushing to Kogi state to solely inaugurate officials “parallel to the officials already heading the state chapter of the party.

“While this may place you in significant affinity with those parallel officials you handpicked, this machination suggests no improvement in the welfare of the party in Kogi or at the national level.”

Tinubu accused Odigie-Oyegun of trying “to undermine my mandate by engaging in dilatory tactics for the most part. When forced to act, you do so in an arbitrary and capricious manner.”

The third republic senator said even if Odigie-Oyegun had personal issues with him, it is his right as a human being but “you have no such right the chairman of this party… The party belongs to all of its members”.

Tinubu thus asked the ex-Edo governor to stop an further “improper unilateral decisions with regard to the national and state chapters of the party.”
