There was Opera at the APC National Convention, as Adams Oshiomhole emerged National Chairman.
Delegates Clash At APC National Convention
Trouble first started among delegates from Imo State before spreading to the Delta State delegates.
While the clash between delegates from Imo was brought under control by security operatives after a while, that between the Delta delegates was more intense with chairs being hurled and several people sustaining injuries.
This occurred despite the heavy security presence at the venue of the convention which has President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and the who is who of the party.
A reliable source at the convention told Johnnybility.com that Some aspirants were forced to withdraw from the race by top APC leaders.
However, the 66-year-old National Chairman ( Adams Oshiomhole ) is taking over the office that was remarkably occupied by a man who also preceded him as governor of Edo State, that is, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, 78, served as governor of Edo State between 1992 and 1993 and became chairman of the APC at its first convention in Abuja in June 2014.
The Odigie-Oyegun led National Working Committee, NWC has attracted flaks for not standing the test at the very difficult moments that confronted the party in the last few years. But whether the failures were traceable to the leadership of the party or caused by the unique complexities that faced the party is an issue that remains unsettled.
