A report has emerged about an alleged plot being hatched by some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop the presidential ambition of a leader of the party, Mr. Bola Tinubu.
According to Thisday Newspaper, the alleged plot to derail Tinubu’s ambition is being backed by second-term governors and some immediate past governors of the party.
The report cited unnamed sources in the party, that is directly connected to the plot against Tinubu is a plan to remove the APC national chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
The reported move to replace Oshiomhole is to prevent Tinubu from getting the APC presidential ticket.
“If Oshiomhole remains as national chairman, then you can be sure that Tinubu’s chances are 50% of getting the presidential ticket of the APC,” Thisday quoted a source privy to the plans.
However, the reported plot to remove Oshiomhole is said to be facing stiff opposition from first-term governors of the APC who are backing him to keep his job.
