Following the dissolution of the National Working Committee, NWC of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, all posters and pictures of suspended national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, have been removed from the party’s national secretariat.
POLITICS NIGERIA learned that this occurred barely 24 hours after the NWC was disbanded. Oshiomole’s pictures have been removed from two giant billboards mounted at the entrance gate and inside the party’s headquarters in Abuja, leaving only President Muhammadu Buhari’s poster.
It was gathered that shortly after the announcement of the NWC’s dissolution, staff at the secretariat jubilated and began to tear down/remove the Edo politician’s portraits from the reception and all the offices.
Oshiomole’s troubles originated from his rift with Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki. Both men have been at loggerheads for a while but the animosity between them heightened after the former influenced the disqualification of the latter from the party guber primaries. This led to Obaseki’s defection to PDP, a development that did not go down well with a large section of the party.
Shortly after, the court of appeal upheld Oshiomhole’s suspension and the party, in an extraordinary National executive committee meeting on Thursday dissolved the Oshiomole-led National Working Committee, NWC.
