A former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has once again breaks silence on the leadership style of a erstwhile governor of Edo state, and labour leader, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of APC. Wondering why a party that he led to victory in 2015, now, a laughing stock and total failure under Oshiomhole, describing him as a man of confusion, who lacks leadership skills and manner. His words
“That statement of booby traps is ludicrous and infantile, an attempt to dream up justification for the failings of the party under Oshiomhole’s chairmanship. “Oshiomhole fails because he lacks the temperament that is required to run a political party. He lacks the capacity to manage the different interests and tendencies that constitute a political party.”
“He (Oshiomhole) engages his mouth before engaging his mind, so he offends party members. So, how does that constitute booby traps by Oyegun, the erstwhile chairman?” “How would you not have crisis in states with the confusion that Oshiomhole created when he gave the states freedom to choose their methods of choosing candidates for elections. ‘’Much of the crisis in states arose out of sheer incapacity on the part of the current chairman. How does Oshiomhole’s incapacity become booby traps by Oyegun? Many party men were aghast at the unfairness and injustice meted them during the primaries process. “Oshiomhole and his chairmen should leave his predecessor out and face his duties of running the party which seems to be overwhelming him. He should face the dwindling fortunes of the party which he himself created”
“Only a bad carpenter quarrels with his tools. Indeed, Oshiomhole is degrading and de-marketing the party. Rather than seek to bring more people on board, he is rather chasing people out of the party with his agbero style of engagement.” Oyegun spoke as Imo State chapter of APC passed a vote of confidence on Oshiomhole. He could be recalled that since Oyegun was ousted out as the party chairman, he remained mute, till he spoke yesterday.
