Eight Governors of Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), were at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja Tuesday to demand the resignation of its National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

Oyegun who was presiding over the party’s NWC meeting at the time, excused himself to meet the governors, including Comrade Adams Oshiomhole (Edo), Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Mallam Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Abubakar Sani Bello (Niger) Senator Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi) and Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa).

The eight of the 23 APC governors may have added to the pressure on Oyegun to quit since the debacle of the National Assembly elections where all of the party’s anointed candidates for plum leadership positions in the two chambers of the parliament were defeated by their opponents who contested against the directive of the party.

The Chairman has been severally accused of double standard in the crisis, as he was accused of collecting ‘gifts’ before the election from Senator Bukola Saraki while pretending to be doing the bidding of the party’s leaders who wanted the seat ceded to Ahmed Lawan.

Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State gave a hint of what was happening inside when he stormed out of the Secretariat, refusing to answer any questions from newsmen on standby.

At the end of the meeting, the governors who could not hide their angers, left without answering questions posed to them by newsmen.

After the meeting with the governors, the APC national chairman also met with Senators Ahmed Lawan and George Akume who were waiting for him to finish with the Governors.
