According to The Vanguard, the duo met during the
presentation of a book titled Muhammadu Buhari:
The Challenges Of Leadership In Nigeria authored
by Prof John Paden at the African Hall,
International Conference Centre, Abuja.
It would be recalled that the national leader of the
All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola
Ahmed Tinubu, has asked the national chairman of
the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, to resign for
derailing the party’s agenda.
Daily Independent reports that Tinubu made the
demand on Sunday, September 25, 2016 in a
communiqué from his media office.
The former governor of Lagos state allegedly
accused Oyegun of sabotaging the will of
democracy in Ondo state by sending the name of
Rotimi Akeredolu to the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) against the decision
of the appeal panel that demanded for a fresh
governorship primary election in the party for the
forthcoming governorship election in the state.
In the communiqué, Tinubu reportedly alleged that
Oyegun’s subversion of the will of the people
proved that he must have been under the influence
of a powerful and sinister arm at work.

“The APC, a party born of the quest for democratic
good governance, is under critical threat by those
who managed to be in the party but never of it.
“From the party’s inception, the principles of
democratic fairness and justice were to guide APC
internal deliberations.
Party founders realized that only by intramural fair
dealing could the party remain faithful to the
progressive ideals that we presented to the
Nigerian electorate as our governing creed.
If the party could not justly govern itself, it would
find it difficult to establish and maintain just
government throughout the nation.
“In essence, the party was the embodiment of a
democratic promise made between its members as
well as a democratic vow made to the public.
Evidently, some errant members believe promises
and vows are mere words to be easily spoken and
more easily broken.
Chairman John Oyegun has breached these good
pledges in a most overt and brazen display. In
doing so, Oyegun has dealt a heavy blow to the
very party he professes to lead.
It is an awful parent who suffocates his own child
for the sake of a few naira. The party was
supposed to buttress APC members elected to
government at all levels. Because of Oyegun’s
conduct of our affairs, the party is rapidly
becoming an albatross to those it was meant to
help
