“Bye bye Oshiomhole, Bye bye bad leadership, Oshiomhole must go,” some inscriptions displayed on the placards carried by the protesters read.
It was learnt that the protesters who were mostly youths noted that they were at the party’s headquarters to express their displeasure over the leadership style Oshiomhole.
They said: “Our message is clear and simple, Oshiomhole must leave. Enough is enough, he must go. He has not been using his diplomacy to solve the problems in the party.
“This has cost us to lose a lot of states such as Oyo State, Zamfara State, Bauchi State, and other states,” Abubakar Alihu, who described himself as a member of the party and one of the leaders.
“What happened in Zamfara really hurt us because we won the election initially but the court gave the verdict to the PDP due to the fact that APC chairman messed up in some aspects and failed to tackle those aspects.”
The protesters were later countered by thugs coming from the street where the APC secretariat is located. The thugs reportedly threw stones and sticks to disperse the demonstrators.
Meanwhile, The Herald reported Comrade Adams Oshiomhole have been backed House of Representatives to re position the party.
