A group of angry protesters stormed the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.

The group accused Bola Tinubu, the national leader of enthroning himself as 'god of APC' adding that he should either curtail his greed or leave the party.

“Tinubu has undermined the position of Mr President by incessantly sponsoring the spurious ridicule of his anti-corruption fight," said Salaudeen Lukman, the national coordinator of APC Youth Democratic Frontiers (APCYDF).

He continued: "Each time fake stories of impropriety are written about these appointees, paid critics and activists on hire are always quick to accuse President Buhari of fighting corruption while surrounding himself with corrupt people but we all know this is far from the truth.

“What we learnt is that Tinubu is attacking these aides of Mr President because he believes he should have been the one who makes appointments into those positions as opposed to what happened when Mr President acted in national interest and cohesion to appoint tested and trusted individuals.

"we can no longer fold our arms while we watch and allow party feudal lords expropriate our party’s ethics simply on regional nomenclature aimed at usurping party’s national interest.

“It should be stated categorically that we are no longer comfortable with the whims and caprices of an orchestrated Jagaban resident in Bourdilion, Lagos and directed at misdirecting our progressives party simply to achieve egocentric empirical relevance.

“Let us state on a sad note that this overbearing tendency on the part of Tinubu is not limited to the federal level alone, he meddles in the affairs of even states that are not his home states,” he added.

Tinubu recently demanded the resignation of John Oyegun, the APC national chairman.

Tinubu alleged that Oyegun had bypassed the decision of the appeal panel that asked for a fresh governorship primary in the state following investigations that showed that the delegates’ list used had been tampered with.
