A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state has expressed his support for Chairman, John Oyegun.

Chief Francis Inegbiniki urged APC leader, Bola Tinubu not to direct his anger over the Ondo governorship primaries at Oyegun since he isn’t a candidate.

Inegbiniki made the comments via a statement issued in response to Tinubu’s call for Oyegun’s resignation.

The statement reads in part:

“It is unfortunate that our national leader, whom we all respect so much and Timi Frank, have asked Oyegun to resign from office, without disclosing the offence that he committed to warrant his resignation.”

“Our national leader’s anger against Oyegun is related to the just concluded Ondo State APC governorship primaries, while Timi Frank’s anger is the unfortunate crisis rocking the National Assembly. Oyegun is not the cause of the crisis in the National Assembly and cannot take decision alone without other members of the National Working Committee.

“Oyegun was not an aspirant in the Ondo APC primaries, so, it is unnecessary for anyone to direct his anger at Oyegun. It is not fair to put all the blames on him. Nobody should use Oyegun as the sacrificial lamb.

“We are therefore, calling on the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and members of the National Working Committee to call Timi Frank to order.”
