“We’re aware of renewed attempts to declare a minority faction which is aimed at giving life to the ongoing intense lobbying to rescind the appointment and inauguration of Hon. Bolarinwa as caretaker Chair.
“Some loyalists of the Governor are presently in Abuja, doing everything humanly possible to frustrate the smooth running of the party, I learnt they’re running from pillar to post to ensure BOB is replaced.
“To give life to the lies they’ve been bandying around Abuja, they plan to address the press announcing BOB’s suspension which will later be commuted to outright removal from office.
“The BOB camp are however unperturbed, even though we’re not leaving anything to chances. We’re rest assured APC is a party of the people, with very strong and intimidating progressives credentials, so I can assured you the latest plot will also fail, like those before it” he said.
