Tinubu

It's no longer news that the current crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC that to ousted the suspended national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole is all geared towards dismantling the influence and control of Bola Ahmed Tinubu. 

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the APC is seen as too powerful within the APC, as findings indicate that, at least 16 members of the National Working Committee NWC of the APC including its suspended chairman are strongly loyal to Tinubu. 

And with this realization, a different bloc within the APC has decided to finally collapse the edifice being built by Tinubu in the APC ahead of the 2023 Presidency. 


And with Thursday's recognition of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman by President Muhammadu Buhari, it now appears that Tinubu's days of wielding enormous power within the APC are finally over. 

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu had in statement yesterday, announced that Buhari would attend today's National Executive Council, NEC meeting of the APC called by Victor Giadom. 

With Oshiomhole's suspension, the Bola Tinubu bloc had favoured Abiola Ajimobi, the former governor of Oyo state as the party's acting national chairman.But who really are these men opposing Bola Tinubu?

Kayode Fayemi 

Governor of Ekiti state and chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF. Before Buhari finally endorsed the Victor Giadom leadership of the APC, Fayemi in the company of some Governors led Victor Giadom to the presidential Villa to meet with President Buhari. Although report said they were unable to meet Buhari, it was however learnt that the visit played a huge role in the president's decision to back Victor Giadom.

Recall that Fayemi, a former ally of Tinubu fell out with him ahead of the governor's second term and ever since, Fayemi and Tinubu have not been seen together. Their differences can also be traced to the 2015 presidential election period when Tinubu was asked to nominate a Christian--Yoruba politician as Muhammadu Buhari's running mate, with Tinubu picking vice presidential,, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo especially when many thought Fayemi would be his preferred choice. It appears Fayemi has not forgiven the Jagaban ever since the snub.

Rotimi Amaechi 

The noise and power show from Victor Giadom is not ordinary, as there is a powerful personality behind him. Rotimi Amaechi a former governor of Rivers state and current Minister of Transportation is said to be displeased by the  influence of Tinubu and Adams Oshiomhole in the APC. 

Victor Giadom was his commissioner during his time as governor of Rivers state and with him as the Deputy secretary of the NWC, he was the readily avaliable tool to be used by the Minister. 

Amaechi, who is from a small faction of the New PDP that formed the APC in 2014, has no relationship with Tinubu in any way or form.

Mallam Nasir El Rufai 

With his seeming interest in the 2023 Presidency, El Rufai the governor of Kaduna state is not an ally of Tinubu, particularly knowing that the former governor of Lagos state is also eyeing the 2023 Presidency.

El-Rufai himself in May Said, "Tinubu is not my man"He was also one of the governor's that led Vicoto Giadom to the presidential Villa.

Conclusion 

Aside the three names mentioned above, Governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu is also not a friend to Tinubu and Oshiomhole. The Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong, who doubles as the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum was also part of the delegation that went to Aso Rock. With the outcome of today's NEC meeting being awaited, it remains to be seen how the various power blocs survive the onslaught against each other.
