The battle for the soul of APC is one war that is lingering for a very long time. With 2023 around the corner a lot of politicians with interest is jostling to grab the major organ of the party which is the National Working Committee. Some governors and ministers who are nursing interest are covertly engaging Oshiomole and by extension Tinubu who is the main backbone behind Oshiomole in a war of supremacy. So let’s take a look at a the Governors and ministers engaging in this warfare.
Fayemi is the current governor of ekiti state, and also the chairman of the Nigerian Governors forum. The next president of Nigeria is most likely going to be a southerner. Fayemi is one of those believed to be eyeing the presidential seat. Since he sees Oshiomole as his perceived enemy, he will stop at nothing to see the end of the oshiomole’s regime.
Elrufai is the governor of Kaduna state. Recently he has voiced his opinion on Nigeria’s zoning system and has advocated that power should return to the south in 2023. Many analyst see this as a vice presidential ambition. He is believed to eye the number two jobs in Nigeria. He and Oshiomole are not the best of friends at this time, and he would love to see the Comrade booted out. How that will eventually play out is yet to be seen.
Godwin Obaseki Governor of Edo state is in an open battle with his predecessor, a battle that is taking a new dimension every single day. He is one those fighting the National Chairman, he publicly celebrated the suspension of Oshiomole by the Abuja High Court. The national chairman is opposed to Obaseki’s second term ambition, that is why they are locking horns for this long. Obaseki is one those accused of planning to oust the National Chairman, which many external forces is now taking advantage of. We are yet to see the end to of this war.
Amaechi is one of the ministers believed to be fighting Oshiomole. His dissatisfaction with the national chairman is tied to the crisis that enveloped the All Progressive Congress in Rivers state where Amaechi and Magnus Abe’s camp were battling for the control of the party in Rivers state. Amaechi’s problem is how Oshiomole handled the matter. He believes that was why the party could not stage a comeback in the last election.
Rotimi Akeredolu is the governor of Ondo state. From inception, he and Oshiomole have not enjoyed a smooth relation. He was not the anointed candidate of Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, and he is one of those that wants to see the comrade kicked out.
Other Governors who also wants to see the Comrade booted out are; Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, Governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State. Others are former Governors namely; Rochas Okorocha, Ibikunle Amosun, Abdulaziz Yari of Imo, Ogun and Zamfara state respectively.
The names above are individuals with a large following, their coming together is a bad Omen to Oshiomole, although they all want him out for different reasons, they all have one thing in common which is to see that Oshiomole is removed.
