The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari could not attend the launch of the party’s governorship campaign in the state.

Buhari was expected to attend the event with Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo but they were noticeably absent leading to speculations that all is not well in the ruling party.

However, according to state publicity secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, an emergency prevented Buhari and Osinbajo from attending the event.

“The President and the Vice President had an emergency state matter they had to attend to and so could not turn up,” he said.

APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu was also absent from the event.

The APC primaries in Ondo have caused crisis in the party due to the emergence of Rotimi Akeredolu as governorship candidate instead of Segun Abraham, who was supposedly Tinubu’s choice.

The development led Tinubu to demand the resignation of Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun who he accused of cheating during the primaries.
