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 Odigie Oyegun.

The youths, wielding banners and placards, said they were protesting what they described as 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 Oyegun came on board as chairman of the party, its finances had not been audited and made public as stipulated by the law.

The group also accused the the Oyegun-led National Working Committee (NWC) of imposition of candidates at all levels, adding that there could never be fairness and justice in any party with the shackles of candidate imposition.

Oyewole emphasised that the current national chairman could not work in tandem with the APC agenda and that of President Muhammadu Buhari. He said that if Oyegun was not removed from the office, he would continue to rubbish the efforts of the President in the fight against corruption.

The youth threatened to picket the party's national secretariat and chase out all the staff if the National Executive Council meeting failed to address his removal. The group has given the party a one-month ultimatum to do the needful or face the consequences.

Oyegun narrowly escaped being mobbed by the protesters when his convoy arrived the secretariat, and drove in the middle of the angry crowd.

Seventeen governors plotted Oyegun’s removal when they accused him of unilateral running the party with only seven of their colleagues. (Daily Trust)
