Following the loss of Zamfara state by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), at the Supreme Court, the Deputy National Chairman north, Lawal Shuaibu has called for the resignation of the National chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
In a letter dated May 27, 2019 addressed to Oshiomhole, Shuibu blamed the chairman, for the loss of Zamfara to the opposition Peoples Democratic Parrty (PDP), saying in advanced democracies people who fail to add value or build over and above what they met on assumption of duty honorably resign to pave way for new ideas.
According to the letter titled APC its fortune and misfortune, time to act, Shuibu said “it is my honest opinion that your ability to ensure this party flourishes is deficient as you lack the necessary composure and you also don’t posses the capabilities and the requisite experience to run a political party.
“ I write this letter thinking because I’m a critical stakeholder in the APC project and with my hands shaking arising from realizing my involvement in a project that is currently seen as failing even before achieving the ambition of its funding fathers. I never found myself in any failed project.
“I therefore want to advice you to take path of honour to step aside and allow the party to embark on onerous task of reconstruction and rehabilitation in those states it was weakened by the effect last primary election.
“Or even the task of recreating the party where it is on the path of extinction, arising from the loss of a sitting APC government for example Zamfara state, where you directly personally created the problem leading to the painful complete loss of APC’s electoral fortunes from up to down.
“You cannot exonerate yourself from what happened to APC in Zamfara state, thereby destroying the hopes and aspirations of 534, 541 members and supporters.
