Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, Prof. Babagana Zulum of Borno State have relocated to Abuja to spearhead the rescue of the embattled APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Their effort seems to be paying off as the governors who are elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress are said to have been divided.

No fewer than twelve governors of them are backing the embattled leader, insisting that the ambition of their colleagues aggravated the present crisis.

The governors, it was gathered from multiple party sources are sad that a number of their colleagues seem to be behind the crisis.

One of the sources said: “At least, twelve pro-Oshiomhole governors are going to be meeting very soon to strategise on a way to stop what they have described as an embarrassing matter.

They recalled Oshiomhole’s achievements as reasons that he should be rescued.

“Oshiomhole ensured the re-election of the President.

“He ensured the coming into being of a National Assembly that’s on the same page with the executive in terms of implementing the party manifesto.’’

Another source at the party secretariat disclosed that the NEC meeting slated for March 17 was a unilateral decision of the anti-Oshiomhole governors, who he said are going about with a letter supposedly written by the Presidency approving the said meeting.

The source sais, for the NEC meeting to hold, the NWC would meet and proceed to discuss with the President on the requirement to possess a National Caucus.

“There could be a letter being bandied around by some anti-Oshiomhole forces purported to have been written by Mr. President that he has sanctioned the March 17 NEC meeting.

“It was on the idea of that fake letter that they fixed the meeting.

“The letter was supposedly signed by an aide of the President.

“The pro-Oshiomhole group tried to understand the genuineness of the letter from the Presidency and we learned that the President failed to authorise the letter .

“The National Chairman can lead members of the NWC to discuss with Mr. President, before fixing a mutually convenient date.

“They got some people to write the letter in their desperation to get rid of Oshiomhole.

“That letter has to be investigated
