Oshiomhole’s supporters hold counter rally in Abuja
Adams Oshiomhole John Alechenu, Abuja Supporters of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, have commenced activities to counter moves to oust him from office. The supporters, acting under the aegis of Unity Group of APC and Friends of Oshiomhole in Nigeria, held a peaceful protest at the APC National Headquarters, Abuja, on Friday and planned to hold others, Saturday PUNCH has learnt. A source said, “We are ready to defend our chairman from the organised attacks of enemies of our party. “We will be holding peaceful protests before our mega rally. There will also be radio and television appearances by some of our leaders, it’s a full package.” Friday’s protesters, who displayed banners with inscriptions, ‘Oshiomhole carry on,’ ‘Oshiomhole must stay’, ‘Oshiomhole, you have done well’, among others, converged at the party’s secretariat. Some of them wore khaki tops and trousers as a mark of solidarity with the embattled chairman. Addressing newsmen shortly after the rally, the leader of the APC Unity Group, Mallam Idris Faruk, said, “The campaign of calumny against our National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, must stop. “We know all those behind it do not mean well for this party, they are resisting the positive changes he is bringing to the party but they cannot succeed because most members of this party stand in support of the chairman. “We are here today as APC members to give support to our national chairman for the good work he has been doing. We want him to continue. Whoever wants the national chairman to go, he or she is nursing their exit from the party.” Speaking at the event, the National Publicity Secretary of Friends of Oshiomhole in Nigeria, Folorunso Emmanuel, said, “We are here to say Oshiomhole must stay. Those who want him out are working for the opposition. “It is with this same Oshiomhole as chairman that we won the last presidential elections hands down, we now fully control the National Assembly and things are going on well, why change a winning team.” About 24 hours earlier, protesters clamouring for Oshiomhole’s removal stormed the secretariat but had to scamper to safety when they were attacked by a mob.

I think APC should stop this show of shame and concentrate on finding solutions to the crisis within the Party. Let the Chairman be magnanimous and call his members for a meaningful solution. Enough of all this grandstanding. Edo should not be another Zamfara!! Is Oshiomhole' children leading the supporters counter rally in Abuja? If not you are a fool for doing that period!
In Nigeria protesters are paid like agberos to perform this is why the Govt and politicians know the fake and real protest. This guy has forgotten about what he did and said Supporters or hired crowd? So, this man has supporters? Nothing is impossible in Nigeria. Let the protests and counter protests continue, Its none of my business. APC is synonymous to crisis, 'If crisis is what it takes to win an election, APC will bring more crises in Nigeria'
