APC Govs Disappoint Oshiomhole, Shun Jos Meeting


Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, embattled national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), was a disappointed man on Monday when he stormed Jos, Plateau State, venue of the Progressives Governors’ Forum meeting, apparently to forestall alleged plot by the governors to oust him as national chairman of the party.
Recall that some state APC chairmen had called for his resignation shortly after the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party in Abuja, having failed on Friday to move a motion for his sack at the NEC.
The battle ground, we gathered, was to shift to Jos where most of the APC governors were expected to meet to push through the agenda.
Not to be intimidated, the former Edo State governor reliably moved his war arsenal to Jos but was met with disappointment as majority of the APC governors stayed away from the meeting.
The APC national chairman, who was seen at a dinner organised by the Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong, to welcome the progressive governors, was not on the list of invitees to the meeting.

Sources close to the organisers disclosed that the APC boss was not officially invited for the event, but that he showed up anyway, apparently to lobby some of the governors.
The APC sources stressed that the organisers were surprised to see their chairman.
“Oshiomhole and some members of the National Working Committee of the APC were not invited for the parley.
