Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, Saturday, said that those behind the plot for Adams Oshiomhole removal as national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are agents of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Uzodinma who made this known to journalist in Owerri on Saturday, in the state capital stated that Oshiomhole would not be humiliated out of office.
According to him, there are established guidelines for removing national officers of the party which are not being followed.
He also said that those against the APC national chairman have been dropping the name of President Muhammadu Buhari to achieve their aim.
“Many of us, leaders of the party, are aware that those clamouring for the chairman’s removal are working with the PDP to destabilise the party.
“But they will fail because we will not allow them to humiliate our national chairman out of the party through illegal means or by dropping the name of Mr. President.
“So, I advise those dropping the name of the President on their wicked plans to desist forthwith. He has done nothing wrong and no amount of propaganda and illegal plots can succeed in removing him from office, ” he said.
The crisis within the ruling party had heightened after a federal high court in Abuja ordered suspension of Oshiomhole and the police took over the party secretariat.
The APC national chairman had accused a serving minister and some governors of being responsible for his ordeal.
Oshiomhole later admitted that it is possible that he has made mistakes but there is no human being who is perfect.
Pictures and billboards of the embattled party chairman have been removed at the party’s secretariat in Abuja, while leaders of the south-south region of the party have asked the national executive council (NEC) to confirm Victor Giadom, acting national secretary, as acting national chairman.
