Nigeria News – APC Under Comrade Oshiomhole Is A Disaster. To Me, It Is Simply Disastrous – Senator Hanga

A former national chairman of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Senator Rufai Hanga, has described Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a disaster, saying he initially predicted it.

The former national chairman also predicted that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would give Buhari a good fight in the northern part of Nigeria.

He noted, while speaking on Oshiomhole’s leadership, that he predicted
Oshiomhole’s tenure was going to be a disaster since the day he emerged winner.

Senator Rufai Hanga also stated: “APC under Comrade Oshiomhole is a disaster. To me, it is simply disastrous. I am sorry to say this because right from the day when they announced him as a potential candidate for the chairmanship, I told some friends that this party is heading for the rocks.

“They asked me why and I said that Comrade Oshiomhole was not a groomed politician. He is a unionist. He is certainly a real comrade, but he does not have the tact of a politician. He wants to impose things in certain ways that are not acceptable in politics and this is what has happened.

“Let me give you an example of this weakness. When Ganduje came and lied to us that he was asked to give Shekarau an automatic ticket, initially I accepted it. I even escorted them to submit Shekarau’s form to Oshiomhole’s office. We went together to submit the forms.

“Why I said Oshiomhole is not a politician. I was a member of the House of Representatives, I was a member of the Senate, and I was national chairman of a party that really performed, I was part of Buhari’s legacy or empire.

“He should have, there and then, recognized me. If he were a politician he would have recognized me and that would have pacified me and even made me ashamed to even leave the party,” Hanga stated.

The former national chairman, while speaking on the outcome of the forthcoming presidential election, stated: “I think Atiku would give Buhari a good fight in the North. I tell you this because I am a grassrooter and I know that he will.

“The only thing is that Atiku is not doing it the way I thought he should do it and Buhari’s people have woken up now. They were actually dosing before now, but they have awoken now and things are moving at double speed. I am being objective.”
