Progressives governors, a forum of Nigerian governors on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and ministers have joined forces to oust the former National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, CAPITAL POST has learnt.

President Muhammadu Buhari has also accepted the idea to tentatively ease Oshiomhole out from the leadership of APC now that his travails has been precipitated by the Court.

Local media was awash with insinuations that the Minister of transportation, Rotimi Ameachi visited President Buhari and reportedly cautioned him of the impending doom, if he failed to intervene in APC’s leadership imbroglio.

Amaechi had preciously canvassed for the Rivers State APC chieftain and Deputy zonal Chairman, Victor Giadom as Chairman.

Several other ministers were gathered to be working clandestinely mobilizing support for the APC NEC meeting scheduled for Thursday convened by Victor Giadom who President Buhari endorsed as APC acting national chairman after the ousting of Oshiomhole by the Court of Appeal.

Adams Oshiomohle’s emergence as APC Narional Chairman was at the instance of Bola Ahmed Tinubu who analyst believed was strategic to his 2023 presidential ambition on the APC platform.

Undisputaly, the political equation has changed with the stake now being taken away, and currently held by a political actor close to a prominent minister of Transportation.

Meanwhile, Director-General of Progressives Governors Forum, Salihu Lukman, who coordinates the organizational structure of the APC governors, has intensified mobilization of committed APC members and leaders to queue behind President Buhari for the success of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting scheduled for Thursday in Abuja under the guise of resolving the conflicts ravaging the ruling party in an obvious asymmetric party patronage and stakes among the legacy parties.

Lukman in a statement on Wednesday, declared: “with all the confusion as to who is our presiding officer, coupled with the fact that the most important structure that is saddled with the responsibility of convening meetings of all organs of the party is fractured and entangled in webs of legal cases, it is either the confusion is allowed to continue and eventually end with the demise of the party, or our leaders find a way to save the party.”

“The president’s endorsed APC acting National Chairman, Victor Giadom, convened the NEC meeting with the backing of President Buhari on Thursday. It is obvious that ACN could have weak representation with the exiting of Oshiomhole at the Thursday meeting.

Part of the reasons that made some governors irked at Oshiohmole was the humiliation of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, who they see as a colleague.
