Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun have called out the current chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, expressing disappointment over his style of leadership.
Oyegun expressed his view in a statement by Chief Ray Morphy, Public Affairs Adviser, saying one of Oshiomhole’s mistakes was his comment on “booby trap”.
Chief Oyegun also stated that Oshiomhole lacked the ability to manage different things that make up a state, saying he always act against decision taken by the National Working Committee of the party.
“That statement of ‘booby traps’ is ludicrous and infantile, an attempt to drum up justification for the failings of the party under Oshiomhole’s chairmanship. Oshiomhole failed because he lacks the temperament that is required to run a political party,” Oyegun said.
He continued, “He lacks the capacity to manage the different interests and tendencies that constitute a political party. He engages his mouth before engaging his mind, so he offends party members. So, how does that constitute booby traps by Oyegun, the erstwhile chairman?”
Accusing Oshiomhole of the party’s losses in the just concluded general election, Oyegun said “How would you not have crisis in states with the confusion that Oshiomhole created when he gave the states freedom to choose their methods of picking candidates for elections. Much of the crisis in the states arose out of sheer incapacity on the part of the current chairman. How has this Oshiomhole incapacity become booby traps by Oyegun.
“Only a bad carpenter quarrels with his tools. Indeed Oshiomhole is degrading and demarketing the party, rather than seek to bring more people on board, he is rather chasing people out of the party with his agbero style of engagement,” the statement said.
