The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has thrown his support behind a former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, to succeed as national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Oshiomhole, would emerge as the party’s leader barring any unforeseen circumstance today, after Clement Ebri, his major contender withdrew from the race some days ago.
Sani in a statement issued on Saturday, criticised the outgoing chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun for his poor leadership, describing his party in its present form as ‘unruly” with a broom unable to clean the political space.
He, however, expressed optimism that Oshiomole, unlike Oyegun would lead the party into a desired future.
“In the last three years under Oyegun, APC oscillate between Libya, Syria and Yemen situations.
“In the last three years, APC’s broom was stained by the feaces of inequities and glued by the mucus of injustices.
“In the last three years, APC became an unruly ruling party presiding over ruins of its sub chapters.
“Chief Oyegun is leaving behind an APC that he fashioned and erected on a heap of fraudulent congresses, cold war and civil war. Chief Oyegun is leaving behind hatchets buried with leaves. Chief Oyegun is literally leaving behind grenades covered with flowers of which Comrade Adams must detonate.
“In the last three years under the outgoing leadership of the party, APC’s broom was unable to clean the political space and even itself but rather became part of the nation’s refuse and sewage waste.
“I believe Comrade Adams can take the party out of the woods and lead it to a new path and a new future. However, I advise that Adams must resist the blackmail and the stranglehold of the Lucifers within the party,” he said.
