Following the decision of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disqualify some senatorial aspirants in Ondo State, the affected contestants have called for the immediate sack of National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomole if the decision was not reversed within 24 hours.
The three serving senators that were given the automatic tickets of the party according to Channels Television news, last night, Ajayi Boroffice (Ondo North), Tayo Alasoadura (Ondo Central) and Yele Omogunwa (Ondo South).
The aspirants who spoke with journalists in Akure, the state capital, said Oshiomole was working towards the total collapse of the APC, saying he ( Oshiomole) was not capable to lead the party and had failed as the chairman of the party.
“We, the aspirants of the APC in Ondo State, purportedly cleared to contest, hereby reject, unequivocally, the so-called decision of the NWC. There is nothing like automatic tickets in a constitutional democracy. The NWC should rescind the decision or Oshiomole should resign.
“He ( Oshiomole) does not have the capacity, he does not have the tolerance to lead the party, if he does not resign he will kill the party.”
Also speaking, one of the cleared senators, Tayo Alasoadura said though he was cleared to contest the senatorial election, he was not pleased with the decision of the NWC by disqualifying other aspirants.
He added that the problem of the party had further been compounded under the leadership of Oshiomole.
