“If there is something that happens contrary to our interest, of course we will be bitter. I am bitter. The party is bitter,” Oyegun said during an interview with Channels TV on Sunday, July 17, 2016.

“We won a hard fought election. We are putting together the best contingent we have to tackle the problems of this nation and then you are confronted with a sore top in the middle of an APC leadership. It’s not right. It's just not right,” he added.
