The feud between the National leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the party chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun is affecting the finances of the party. A senior chieftain of the party who spoke under the condition of anonymity, confided in NAIJ.com that all is not well within the party because of Tinubu’s withdrawal of financial support to the party headquarters. “Things have gone from bad to worse,” the party chieftain told NAIJ.com on phone, “Ever since the refusal of President Buhari to fund the party activities, Asiwaju has been the sole financier of the party. “But he has withdrawn his support due to the way he was humiliated by the party chairman in the Ondo primary.”
Asked to comment on the rumours that there are plans by anti-Oyegun elements in the APC to remove him and include his name in President Muhammadu Buhari’s ambassadorial nomination list, the party chieftain said it is true. APC chairman, Chief John Oyegun is under the spotlight we reached out to another chieftain of the party who corroborated the story. All efforts to get the APC official reaction to this report was not successful as at the time it was published.
