JUST IN: 2019!!! Bola Tinubu’s Letter Bomb Tears Buhari’s Presidency Apart, As APC Calls For Emergency Meeting

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu’s letter to the National Chairman of the party, John Oyegun, is already causing friction in the ruling party.

It was learnt that the APC National Working Committee, NWC, has called for an emergency meeting tomorrow, Monday, to find solutions to the internal conflicts rocking the ruling party ahead of the 2019 election year.

It was gathered that the letter written by the former Lagos State Governor, had started creating division among members of the party’s leadership.

Opinion is however, said to be divided among members of the party’s NWC, with respect to allegations contained in Tinubu’ letter to Oyegun.

It was learnt that some believed that the allegations against the Chairman, some of which were contained in a memo signed by the six zonal Vice Chairmen which they later denied, were strong enough to pass a no-confidence vote on Oyegun.

A source said: “Most of the opinions expressed in Tinubu’s letter are not new to us.

“If you will recall, some of these things were contained in the memo written to the NWC by the six zonal Vice Chairmen, which they were latter prevailed upon to step down, out of respect for Mr. President, and the task of reconciliation he gave to Tinubu.

“These issues are real. The decision to set up the Tinubu-led Committee is an indication that the President is aware that our Chairman is incapable of dealing with the issues, because he is part of the problem. If we are to take a confidence vote, he will not survive it.”

Asked if a confidence vote is likely to feature, he said: “It is difficult to say. The agenda for such meetings is usually prepared on the go, and for such a move to gain traction, you need to buy in the Governors, and like you know, most of the Governors are behind Oyegun.”

Another NWC member, who spoke in a similar manner, said: “We have been warned against turning this whole thing into a media affair, but the truth be told, as a party, we cannot afford to allow things to continue like this. There is no sacrifice too much to make to restore order.”

Also, another NWC member lamented that the reconciliation in the party appeared complicated.

Speaking on condition of anonymity stated: “How do you begin a reconciliation process when a Governor is demolishing the residence of anyone who disagrees with him?

“Governors are becoming a law unto themselves, because we do not have a strong party capable of ordering them to toe the line, and the President appears indifferent.”

Another NWC member, who has a slightly different view, believes removing the Chairman would cause more problems than solving the current crisis in the party.

“Removing the Chairman or even sacking the entire NWC at this time, will do more harm than good; not just the image of our party, but it will further weaken us.

“Since the tenure of this current leadership will end in a few months, the leadership should be allowed to serve out their term, which officially ends in June, after which the National Convention should be held to elect a new set of Leaders”, he added.
