The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) , John Oyegun has been allegedly accused of planning to dissolve the APC structure in Kogi state on Tuesday during the National Working committee Meeting of the party.
The Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kogi West, Chief Gbenga Ashagun made the allegation in a statement issued and made available on Monday in Lokoja.
Ashagun said this development is contrary to Chief Tony Momoh-led committee recommendations that strongly evolved a blueprint for reconciliation between the Audu/Faleke faction and the Yahaya Bello led faction.
He explained that the latest move by John Oyegun is directly creatuing a glaring line of selfish interest which is now at the point of selling the Audu/Faleke faction of the APC to the Yahaya Bello’s faction of the APC.
According to the Kogi APC Chieftain, “It was observed that the National Chairman of the APC, Mr John Oyegun may have been offered a Greek gift amounting to the sum of 150 million naira to be disbursed among the high-ranking members of the APC NWC in the party secretariat, Abuja.”
He further hinted that the National Chairman of the party will also get a contract for the rehabilitation of Kabba township road at a highly exorbitant amount as a compliment for effecting the shady deal.
“Going by the above insight, it is obvious that the Audu/Faleke led faction with Haddy Ametueo as the state chairman of the party may be losing the battleground to the money bag faction of the Alhaji Yahaya Bello, a development that may mark the obituary for what can be tagged as the remainder of the APC in Kogi state,” he stated.
However, Ashagun maintained that the Audu/Faleke faction will resist this gruesome decision because they are ready to fight the battle to any length.
“John Oyegun whose tenure is almost coming to an end may have nothing to lose considering the fact that the APC is a mere shadow of itself, though the PDP in Kogi state may be the largest beneficiary, should John Oyegun accept the ‘Ghana Must Go’. This will dampen the hope of the Audu/Faleke led faction in their quest for justice.
“It is baffling to note, that the APC that came to power with a strong message centered on anti-corruption campaign slogan is now caught in the web of corruption. Political observers believe that the party have not just scammed Nigerians but came to power through instruments of propaganda and cheap deceits,” Ashagun noted.
