The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Odigie Oyegun on Saturday shunned the party’s ward congress.
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun did not take part in the exercise at his ward 2 in the Oredo Local Government Area where he registered.
Efforts to reach Odigie-Oyegun for comments were unsuccessful but the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr. Chris Azebamwan, said, “Chief Odigie-Oyegun has more pressing issues begging his attention than the ward congress.
“That he was not physically present does not mean that he was not part of the process. He was not a candidate at the ward level, so he did not need to be physically present.” He explained
Our Correspondent however gathered that the party’s national chairman boycotted the ward congress to protest the adoption of Adams Oshiomhole for position of national chairman by President Buhari ahead of June National Convention.
