The youth wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC), under the aegis of Save APC Democracy Youth Vanguard, on Monday besieged the National Secretariat of the ruling party in Abuja, demanding the immediate sack of the National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun.
The youths, wielding banners and placards, said they were protesting the gross violation of the party’s constitution and demanded an immediate audit of the APC accounts.
Addressing journalists, the leader of the group, Peter Oyewole, said that since 2015, when Mr. Oyegun came on board as chairman of the party, its finances have not been audited and made public as stipulated by the law.
The group also accused the Oyegun-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the imposition of candidates at all levels, adding that there can never be fairness and justice in any party with the shackles of candidate imposition.
Mr. Oyewole emphasized that the current national chairman cannot work in tandem with the APC agenda and President Buhari.
He said that if Mr. Oyegun is not removed from the office he will continue to rubbish the efforts of the president in the fight against corruption.
