The All Progressive Congress (APC) Integrity Youth Forum has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ask the chairman of the party Adams Oshiomole to resign before more damage is done to the party.
A statement signed by the national legal adviser, APC Integrity Youth Forum, Babatunde Ogala, said Oshiomhole must not be allowed to kill the party by committing perjury and having some national officers allegedly aiding him.
Ogala asserted that he was constrained to put this memo and complaint in writing on a national daily in the light of the repeated acts of usurpation and deliberate encroachment of his office and attempt to undermine his person and office.
The statement reads in part: “You will recall that you have previously done this in two previous matters wherein you had purportedly without recourse to me briefed the Law Firm of D.D Dodo & Co. in Suit No: FCT/HC/CV/9265/2018 Ugwumba Uche Nwosu Vs. APC & 1or and you also without recourse to us briefed the law firm of Adeniyi Akintola, SAN who had been briefed by the office of Legal Adviser.”
He said an affidavit on behalf of the party wherein the deponent alleged that an oath that he had the authority of the party to depose the said affidavit.
Ogala said the motion filed by the law firm, D.D Dodo & Co also decried that the processes was served on the Legal Department in a certain suit no: FCT/HC/BW/CV/307/2018. Senator Hope Uzodinma v APC & 2ors.
He said when he became aware of this aberration and falsity, upon raising same at the National Working Committee meeting, he vehemently protested same and took serious exception to the encroachment whilst vowing to resist same.
“I also quoted copiously from the party constitution which clearly defines the duties of the national legal adviser and that of the chairman,” he said.
He added that the chairman accepted and did apologize to him at the meeting and he honestly believed that lessons have been learnt and moved on.
