Hundred of protesters on the aegis of Save All Progressives Congress and Democracy Youth Vanguard, yesterday stormed the National Headquarters of the APC, calling for the immediate resignation of the National Chairman, John Oyegun.
The youth group displayed various placards with inscription, “Audit APC account now, No to non-elective convention, APC must support anti-corruption” among others.
Speaking to journalists, leader of the group, Peter Oyewole, said since 2015 when APC won the Presidential election, the party’s finances has not been audited and made public as stipulated by the law.
“Since 2015, the budget of APC has not been made public. Since 2015, the ruling party has not held a single meeting. These are enough to remove the National Chairman. We demand the removal of Oyegun now.
“We are also saying enough is enough to imposition of candidates at all level sby Oyegun led NWC that is currently going on in this party, because in any party where there is imposition, there cannot be fairness, any party where there is imposition, there cannot be equity, the imposition in APC today is just rubbishing the anti corruption war of President Buhari.
“So, the current National chairman we are having in APC cannot work in support of APC agenda and President Buhari. If Oyegun is not removed, he will continue to rubbish the efforts of the President, especially in fighting corruption because you cannot give what you don’t have. The high level of corruption and imposition going on under Oyegun is alarming.
“If Odiege-Oyegun is not removed within the next one month, the APC youths will picket this national Secretariat and make it a no go area to everybody; both staff, the officials and even the security staff will be chased out of the Secretariat and none of them will be allowed to come in here.”
