The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has reacted to allegations that he was in cahoots with some governors of the All Progressives Congress to remove the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomole.
While denying any involvement in an attempt to remove the former Edo State governor, Mr. Akeredolu accused Mr. Oshiomhole of exhibiting incompetence in the handling of the party’s recently concluded primaries across the country.
His Senior Special Adviser on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale, Mr Akeredolu said APC primaries exposed the incompetence of Mr Oshiomhole. He described the exercise as a “political charade” and a revelation of “a shocking proclivity towards banditry and impunity.”
He asserted that recent events had justified his opposition to Mr Oshiomhole’s election as party chairman.
