Nigeria’s ruling party in disarray: Oyegun must go, Tinubu says

John Odigie-Oyegun, APC Chairman
John Odigie-Oyegun, APC Chairman

A former Governor of Lagos State and leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has called on the chairman of the party, John Oyegun, to resign from office.

Mr. Tinubu said Mr. Oyegun is amongst those who have managed to remain within the party because of what they could benefit rather than the sacrifice they could make.

Mr. Tinubu’s comment came in the wake of a major dispute that followed the conduct of the party’s primaries in Ondo State earlier this month.

Mr. Tinubu said Mr. Oyegun had betrayed the tenets of APC and had been a willing tool in efforts to derail the APC agenda.

“Oyegun’s transgressions are a warning. He is but the mercenary of forces that seek to return the nation to the old ways. If they get away with this infraction, no telling what or whom they will undermine tomorrow. Much is at stake,” Mr. Tinubu said.

The APC was formed through an alliance of some opposition political parties and a power bloc in the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party. The party rode to power following the general elections last year during which it won both the presidency and majority in both chambers of the National Assembly.

Mr. Oyegun did not respond to PREMIUM TIMES request for comment.

When contacted, Mr. Tinubu’s spokesperson, Sunday Dare, told PREMIUM TIMES that the former Lagos governor authored the message.

Read the full statement by Mr. Tinubu’s office below:


The APC, a party born of the quest for democratic good governance, is under critical threat by those who managed to be in the party but never of it. From the party’s inception, the principles of democratic fairness and justice were to guide APC internal deliberations. Party founders realized that only by intramural fair dealing could the party remain faithful to the progressive ideals that we presented to the Nigerian electorate as our governing creed. If the party could not justly govern itself, it would find it difficult to establish and maintain just government throughout the nation.

In essence, the party was the embodiment of a democratic promise made between its members as well as a democratic vow made to the public. Evidently, some errant members believe promises and vows are mere words to be easily spoken and more easily broken. Chairman John Oyegun has breached these good pledges in a most overt and brazen display. In doing so, Oyegun has dealt a heavy blow to the very party he professes to lead. It is an awful parent who suffocates his own child for the sake of a few naira. The party was supposed to buttress APC members elected to government at all levels. Because of Oyegun’s conduct of our affairs, the party is rapidly becoming an albatross to those it was meant to help.

Oyegun’s comportment regarding the Ondo state primacy will become the textbook definition of political treachery and malfeasance of the basest order. In early September, the state primary was held. A purported winner was named. Having faith in the ways of the party, Tinubu publicly accepted what he assumed to be a verdict honestly derived. As a democrat, one must face the possibility of defeat and accept such as outcome with as much grace as one would embrace victory. One of the few bright spots during the conduct of the primaries was Jigawa Governor, Alhaji Mohammed Badaru Abubakar

He chaired the primary convention with decorum and impartiality. He was unaware that a tampered list has been slipped into the process.

Indeed within hours of the announcement, news began to filter in that gravely disturbed me. Credible allegations of fraud troubled the waters. The delegate list had been materially altered by someone in a strategic position to so do. The names of over 150 valid delegates were excised to make room for an equal number of impostors. This was not a clerical error. The alteration was wilfully executed that the primary would be directed toward a chosen end that bore nothing in common with the will of most state party members. A cunning few had tried to deceive the many into believing they were outnumbered.

A conspiracy to steal the Ondo primary had been uncovered. Fortunately, the grand deception afoot had been unable to cover its tracks fast enough. Truth began to cry for justice.

Several candidates filed petitions contesting the result. The party established an investigative board to review the evidence. In a two to one decision, the panel found the delegate roster had suffered tampering. The panel recommended that a new primary should be held using the valid delegate list. This recommendation was tabled before the National Working Committee (NWC).

After many hours of deliberations spanning several days, a final vote was held by the NWC. Before hand, NWC members agreed that the decision of the majority would become the stance of the party. Such is the way of democracy. The NWC voted six against five to cancel the fraudulent results and hold an honest primary. For a moment, it seemed the party would restore its integrity by giving democracy a chance. However, those who sought to scam an entire state would not let the vote of 11 people spoil their enterprise.

After the NWC vote, a noticeably agitated Chairman Oyegun proposed the NWC engage in prayer before concluding the meeting. Adhering to this chairman’s request, NWC members began to pray. Seeing that the others had taken his bait, Oyegun used the prayerful interlude to secretly excuse himself from the meeting. Contravening the NWC decision and in violation of all rules of fundamental decency, Oyegun decided to safeguard the fraud done in Ondo by perpetrating a greater fraud. Oyegun arrogated to himself the right to submit the name of Rotimi Akeredolu to INEC as the candidate of the party.

Truth has finally come to light. There exists a regressive element in the party that cares nothing for the progressive ideas upon which this party was founded. They joined the APC because it was the best ride available at the time. Now they want to guide the party into the ditch. They want to turn the party into a soulless entity incapable of doing good, just like they are. When such a person tastes power, they shed all good restraint. They come to abuse the trust given them as if they are the owners of that trust and not its mere custodians. These people did little to build the party but now will do much to wreck it.

Such a man is Oyegun and those who conspired with him to sabotage justice and democracy in Ondo. Our party was to stand for change. Oyegun and his fellows seem to be on a different wave length. They are the cohort of Unchange.

The APC wants to guide Nigeria into a better tomorrow. Oyegun and the cohort of unchange want to pull Nigeria back into the past where rigging and vote stealing were the old and new testaments of politics. They want the people to think that there is no alternative to their reactionary system of skewed politics and imperious government. Thus, they seek to turn the APC into a factory of the very political malpractices the people soundly rejected in the past election. To choke the APC in this manner is to kill the chance for progressive reform for the foreseeable future. Much more than the Ondo primary is at stake. Oyegun has revealed his team’s game plan: It is the destruction of progressive politics and governance on behalf of the people.

As party chairman, Oyegun was supposed to protect our internal processes and be an impartial arbiter, a person in whom all had confidence. Instead, he donned the garment of a confident man, duping the NWC, the party, and INEC in one fell blow. He has robbed APC members in Ondo State of the chance to pick in a fair manner who they believe is the best candidate.

As such, he has broken faith with the party and probably has broken a few laws. The consequences of what he has done are more expansive than a man of his scope can fathom. There must is a powerful and sinister arm at work to compel a man of Oyegun’s age to steal the decision of the party in a manner so crude that it would embarrass even the commonest thief.

With strong expectation, we await a response to Oyegun’s wrongdoing from those who clamoured so long and loudly about Tinubu’s alleged role in the Ondo primary.

Leading into the primary, a prominent lawyer from Ondo published lengthy missives alleging that Tinubu was a malicious hand intent on rigging the primary. His letters spoke of his great love for democracy and justice. Though Oyegun has assaulted democracy in a most public and vulgar way, this lawyer’s prolific pen will remain stilled. He dare not publish a word about this travesty. His silence will be sign for all who care to decipher its meaning.

The plan was to point the accusing finger at Tinubu. With everyone focused on Tinubu, they would have distracted all attention from the heist they had set in motion. As fate would have it, the trickery they hoped to conduct in the shadows has come to light.

Thus, Oyegun was forced to undertake his desperate fraud in broad daylight in order to salvage the wrong initiated under the lamp of darkness. Those who so actively attributed imaginary wrong to Tinubu now stand dumb and mute in the face of confirmed impropriety. They remain silent for reasons they cannot divulge. Oyegun and his ilk turn out to be gangsters adorned in the tunic of party authority.

Oyegun has engaged in the strange math where five is greater than six. This smacks of how the PDP conducted its affairs and orchestrated its own downfall. Tinubu disparaged such malpractice when it was not in his party. Tinubu surely disowns it now that it has invaded the party he helped bring to fruition.

Tinubu has consciously refused to hold any official position with the party to avoid the perception that he was trying to control all and sundry. Tinubu has even kept his peace for some time despite many things that happened within the party that were not quite right. He exercised this forbearance because the party is young. A collective endeavour cannot avoid the mistakes and errors of organizational newness and evolution.

Yet, the wrongs Oyegun committed had nothing to do with newness or the mistakes occasioned by the path of reform. His actions are in the nature of the old wrongs that have afflicted our national politics much too long. If Oyegun wants to walk backward into the past, he has every right to it. However, he has no right to drag the party or any of us with him. Against our choosing.

The informal title of national leader of the party was given to Tinubu at the onset which he accepted it as a sign from those who wished to recognize my contributions to the party’s formation. It is an honorific title which he has been proud to wear until today. I would rather not have any title yet reside in a party that honours democracy than hold a title in a party that says it honours me but that treats justice with indecency. I find greater honour and comfort where democracy and fairness are found and respected.

Oyegun has done the irredeemable. His coup is an insult to party and to patriot, to reason and to the reform agenda of this government. To remain silent would be to admit the defeat of the reform and progressive change many have laboured to bring forth. While the forces resistant to change and reform are strong, Tinubu dare not submit to them. Tinubu encourages all party members not to submit to them. If we acquiesce in this wrong, the one greater than this shall cascade upon us.

Oyegun’s transgressions are a warning. He is but the mercenary of forces that seek to return the nation to the old ways. If they get away with this infraction, no telling what or whom they will undermine tomorrow. Much is at stake. On the chopping block, lies the future of the political party in which the majority of voters had placed their confidence. To rescue the party, Oyegun must go. He has shown that he and democratic fair play cannot exist in the same party at the same time. If Tinubu is to choose between John Oyegun and progress toward a better Nigeria, the choice has already been made. For those who care about the party, who care about Nigeria and its chance for a better tomorrow, now is the time to stand against this brewing evil before it grows to encompass all we have built and all we hold dear.

    No way! John Oyegun is not going anywhere. APC is not in disarray. APC was not arrayed before.

    Bola Tinubu has lost his bet and lost the Action Congress party he owned as a sole proprietor.

    He agreed to forfeit Action Congress in the calculation he’ll be selected as Vice President.

    Bola Tinubu was defeated in that calculation by a wiser and crafty Muhamadu Buhari.

    Then, Bola Tinubu sought to be left alone to dictate to the APC states in Yorubaland.

    He’s again been defeated by President Buhari on that calculation in Ondo state.

    Having lost on all bets and disgraced all round, Bola Tinubu sees DISARRAY.

      The Bola Tinubu Tragedy…….

      Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his group
      were warned of the possible outcome of the gamble and the gambit deployed in
      producing the Buhari Presidency. Tinubu was so blinded by the pursuit of power
      that he failed to take cognisance of the lessons of history and take caution.

      Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu hid under the cover of the Jonathan tragedy to bring
      back to power an ethnic oligarchy that has held Nigeria hostage for over five
      decades. In doing this, he spent money, energy, skills, goodwill, time, sweat
      and put in everything he got to ensure the success of the coalition he put

      His hope of getting positioned for greater influence in the run of things
      was dashed by those he has helped back to power, because as in the nature of
      this ethnic oligarchy, they are not the type that shares “control and domination”
      with anyone, not even the best of their friends, as history has shown and events
      have continued to validate.

    Letter to the Editor,


    I want to use your most respected internet newspaper to say three [3] GBOSA to JOHN OYEGUN as a real hero.
    History will remember John Oyegun as the man who liberated the useful idiots in Lagos state from one-man rule.
    President Muhamadu Buhari must do the needful this weekend by giving John Oyegun national honor as patriot.
    John Oyegun is the best Chairman the APC has ever had if compared to the other lap dog called Bisi Akande.
    Bola Tinubu is daft and naive to expect public sympathy for being given the same poison he served Lagosians.

    Nigeria is a beautiful nation blessed by divinity and well structured or well arranged for super greatness. Check out Gods plan for the united states of the black race called Nigeria. The north was given a very big mass expanse of land suitable for all forms of agricultural activities to produce food for Nigeria and Africa, the people of the north were blessed with uncommon gift for agricultural activities ,from crop to seed to vegetables to fruits to animal and fishing ,no other section of Nigeria can beat the north in this activities. The Yoruba was given grace of wisdom and education to help use their exposure to help Nigeria in education, medicine, information, bureaucracy and politics to use their mouthpiece to ensure unity,fairness, equity and progress of Nigeria .the ibos were given the grace to market all the products of every section of Nigeria, from where they are produced to where they are needed for use and consumption. The south south were given uncommon gift to harvest all that waters can give and provide them for the good of Nigeria. If all this things work in equilibrium, Nigeria shall surpasse her great expectations. The challenge we have is that we have not gotten a good leadership that shall harness all these gifts to the benefits of Nigeria and black race.may God give this nation a leader that shall encourage all the zones of Nigeria to contributes her goods to this nation and not discriminate against the people of Nigeria based of zones,tribes,ethnicity and religion. May God destroy this evil affliction against Nigeria called APC which is an axis of evil causing divisions in Nigeria. May God raise for Nigerian nation a brand of leadership that fears God and loves the people of Nigeria sincerely without hating any section. May God help our nation.

      @ayobamiba:disqus : On the facts presented here I should normally support a victim of fraud but if
      the victim of fraud is himself a dyed in the wool fraudster I cannot in good conscience support
      Bola Tinubu, because the heavens will rejoice whenever a fraudster is thoroughly duped.

      Today may as well be the Liberation Day of the Yoruba people from the un-enlightened
      coalition of Muslims Bola Tinubu put together and called a political party. If the Yoruba
      people are to stop leveling with Zamfara state in WAEC School cert results, they must
      turn away from the illiteracy which Bola Tinubu fans across the land as ‘progress’ –
      though not for malice but just because Bola Tinubu does not know better.

    • Keen Observer

      I thumbed up for you because of your intelligent analysis cum expressions regarding the greatness of Nigeria as a nation vis-à-vis it blessedness by God.
      But not because of the last 3 lines in your comments….”May God destroy this evil affliction against Nigeria called APC which is an axis of evil causing divisions in Nigeria”.
      If you classify APC as evil afflictions then what do you have in mind to classify PDP? Besides it’s too early to classify APC as evil, no great house made of gold, silver, bronze & wood can honorably come together as in marriage w/out initial difficulties. But what is important is how they’re able to sail through their difficulties & come out hurt/unhurt with better understanding of themselves.
      ”.Through the storms, comes the strength for victory & better harmony”. APC is not yet an evil affliction as @ayobamiba:disqus wants to make us to understand from his comments. Lets us Nigerians continue to learn to be patient; because in patience lies better reward.

        Ken Observer, In times like this, every patriotic citizen needs to come down on his knees to seek the face of God for this nation. It is ours and we should hold it firmly supportingly, to move forward. But at times especially like this, we need sober reflection; why are we where don’t want to be? But unfortunately, those who who live in glass house don’t throw stones. Because what goes around, they say, comes around. About 75% of today’s APC members were at one time or the other PDP members who held strong positions in the party but who never liked to let go. They never loved change and so felt bad when their party forced change on them. Sadly, this same APC members were singing their praises then for accepting ‘political jumpology’ (apologies to Ehiedu Aniagu of Political Platform). Now that the seed that had been in them has started to germinate, why the wolf cry? Not long ago, before elections of 2015, APC deafened our ears with promises. But 16 months down the line, what have we seen? Promise denials, policy somersault, inconsistencies that have left citizens go without food for a greater part of the day, and even night. The people are being impoverished daily with taxes in various forms and shapes, tripled electricity tarif, tripled fuel pump price, bank charges amongst others. The so called corruption war is one sided. Otherwise, why is the likes of Buratai, Dambazzau, Amaechi yet to be questioned over huge alleged improprieties? What can you say is the policy direction of this APC led federal government? Ken, if you classify PDP as bad and corrupt please bear in that about 75% of today’s members of APC were from the same PDP. Let the ruling party fulfil their pre-election promises to Nigerian citizens.

    I told them APC had been fragmented into APC-SW and APC-CORE NORTH!
    Gullible fools called me a wailer.
    Those of us from the northern minority are not in the least surprised. I knew the core north represented by Chai-Baba would deal the IGNORANT, NAIVE SW a deadly blow..for the umpteenth time!



  • ayobamiba

    It baffles me how a generation that boasts of being first in every thing should allow themselves to be remote controlled by a man whose only qualification was that Yoruba elders who gathered in Ibadan in 1998 gave him the chance to rule Lagos for 8 years and thereafter he so looted Lagos that he became richer then the state of Lagos within 8years of his governorship. Thiefinubus paternity is suspect,state of origin is suspect, educational qualification is suspect,his morality is suspect, his mental alertness is a matter of debate and his health status is a matter for debate.
    What then qualified thiefinubu to become the god of yorubats? It is either that yorubats have no ideology or that they are morally bankrupt people to be led by the nose like a horse by a shaky shaky master simply because he confiscated their patrimony to himself alone and deploys same to rule over them .what a shame that a man will stay in Lagos to give instructions to ondo people on how they should elect their governor and yet the same ondo people shall come out to see themselves as an intelligent and a proud people.what a shame what a people. Ondo people should take lessons from my rivers people who put amaechi to shame and anambra people who put ubas and obj to shame and ekiti people who put tinubu and fayemi to shame to reclaim their prides and dignities. How could a slave turn to an oba, God forbid. Akeredolu you are Gods threshing instrument, keep it up.

    God don catch you Tinubu, because your man lost, you are crying wolf!, i bet if it was Abraham that won in the way he claims Akeredolu won and Oyegun supported him, his needless epistle wont see the light of the day. ,My advise to you guy be say make you just chillax, you cant win all the time, what about the other times you have dictated who gets what at all levels?,.Abeg Tinubu go sit down and enjoy all the loot you have been making directly and indirectly from the treasuries of the South western states. And why is Sunday Dare still his mouthpiece, lickspittle and spokesperson in one breath?, sunday dare is now a civil servant at NCC as an executive commissioner( a greatly undeserved position surely facilitated by his master) and it would be in contravention of the civil service rules if he continues to overtly political! .

  • Nkem

    “This smacks of how the PDP conducted its affairs and orchestrated its own downfall.” This is Tinubu preaching to Oyegun.

    I remember in 2014 at the Eagle Square when Alhaji Atiku Abubakar physically approached Tinubu at the state box, after Tinubu had schemed to install his stooges as party officials, to complain that “this was what drove us out of the PDP”. At the time the matter was hushed up because the party was desperate to present a united front to capture power at the center. Now see how the table has turned.

    They say what goes around….

  • Abdullah Musa

    A simple party dispute changes color between commentators:
    One, APC is a party for Muslims, as if former VP in PDP is not a Muslim.
    Two, Buhari is planning against Yorubas, as if anybody can win national election without Yorubas.
    Nigerians may never learn to behave prudently in politics till disaster falls upon them.
    Memories fade, the end of civil war is nearly 50 years.
    Most commentators are below 50, as such no memory of the scourge of war.

  • Is Oyegun really as guilty as pointed out by Tinubu? Is this a scene in some grand sinister plot? One thing Nigerian politics has taught Nigerians is that one should not hastily take sides when Nigerian politicians throw darts of allegations against each other. I respect Tinubu, also Oyegun, and I’m quite shocked at this development. We hope time will clear this up and expose that and those needing to be exposed for the benefit of our country Nigeria.

    Like him or hate him, Bola Tinubu have all right to be bitter. If Tinubu did not bring his political support to APC, there will not be Buhari Presidency today. Immediately APC has worn the election, the Fulani North with their political friends moved immediately to clip Tinubu political wing at the center with tactical support from Buhari and Oyegun. These leads to emergent of Saraki and Dogara as senate and house leaders respectively. Mind you Vice President Osibanjo is no body in the decision making at presidency.
    With Tinubu Political wing clipped at center, Now they are moving to south west. If Tinubu allows Ondo to go, then will be other south west states. Tinubu feels being used and dumped. The fight for 2019 presidency has begun.

    After 2015 election, when APC won, Tinubu relocated to ABUJA hoping he will claim credit for the electoral victory. He never smelt where Buhari was. He thought he will install his stooges in the senate and house of reps, he failed. Sensing such monumental failure, he went shamefully take a defeated general to his enclave in Lagos. His dream and hopes dashed. Nobody apart from Ambode pays homage to him again. To maintain some political relevance, he resorts to noise making and grandstanding. He does not control APC nor does he more stakes than others, does Tinubu Ahmed any right in the present dispensation to ask Dr. John Oyegun to resign? The answer of course is an emphatic no. So Tinubu find your level and lick your wounds.

    APC is a party where personal interest supersedes national interest, more dramas will soon unfold.
