The current Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun’s tenure expires in 2018. Rumours have it that  top members of the party are already strategising for his replacement.

 There are strong indications that the presidency is seriously considering the immediate past governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole as Odigie-Oyegun’s replacement.

Oshiomhole is said to be favoured by some APC governors for the post in view of his antecedent as a labour leader. “From the look of things, Oyegun may get an ambassadorial posting which will make him to technically vacate office. They said Oyegun deserves a befitting appointment for leading an opposition party to defeat a ruling party.

“Some forces in the Presidency are looking forward to Oshiomhole as a respectable figure who can fit into the big shoes of Oyegun. Those who support Oyegun see ambassadorial appointment for a politician as a “sort of exile” which is not good.  They are reading a plot into the offer in order to ease out the APC National Chairman.”
