Ibrahim Emokpaire, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, is facing opposition because of his resolve to instill party discipline and supremacy.
He said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja, while reacting to the internal wrangling within the party.
Emokpaire, a former APC national chairmanship aspirant, and the founder of Progressive Solidarity Forum (PSF), said those calling for Oshiomhole’s sack were “detractors that should not be reckoned with”.
He recalled that before Oshiomhole’s election, the party had turbulent times, when indiscipline was the order of the day in most of its state chapters across the federation.
“The loss of Rivers and Zamfara states was due to selfishness, greed and indiscipline of individuals in the party which was the hangover from the immediate past national chairman.
“Oshiomole has brought back some discipline in the party and has put in place ground rules of no go areas for it.
“Since he took over the affairs of the party, he has not lost any off season election as seen in Ekiti, Osun and just recently Kogi and Bayelsa.
“With Oshiomhole at the helm of affairs, opposition are not comfortable because of his doggedness and no nonsense approach, but do-it-right administration,” Emokpaire said.
