The Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, VON, and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Osita Okechukwu, has told the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to humbly resign instead of ‘running’ abroad.
The former Governor of Edo State is currently locking horns with some leaders and Governors of the party who believe he was involved in some shoddy deals during the party primaries.
The VON DG said this at a media briefing at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja yesterday, where he also stated that he had earlier advised Oshiomhole to resign honourably but he refused.
The VON DG said, “Penultimate week, I joined the league of APC moral leaders, faithful and men of good conscience to call on Comrade Adams Oshiohmole, to honourably resign forthwith as the chairmanship of our great party.
“In his usual narcissistic disposition, he refused.
“As the ‘Oshiohmole Must Go’ wave raged, the Department of State Services got wind of it.
“They interrogated him and I patiently waited to read from Comrade Oshiomhole and his spin doctors over his tango with the DSS, in the social or mainstream media, neither rebuttal nor denial came from them.
“I, therefore, once again stridently call on Comrade Oshiomhole to instead of pontification, grandstanding and running away from the country, do the needful by honourably resigning the chairmanship of our great party.”
