The ruling All Progressives Congress, has in recent days been going through a lot of turmoil. After surviving major judicial upsets in Zamfara and Rivers State during the buildup to the last elections, which totally knocked them of the ballot; the APC has been battling with internal Unity, especially in its NWC
It was alleged that Comrade Adams, single handedly appointed a National Secretary for the party without any constitutional backing. This did not go down well with many members of the NWC and has caused a visible crack in the NWC.
Allegations of misappropriation of fund are also strong, as party members are asking for details on how the over N15,000,000,000, Fifteen Billion Naira, raised during the 2019 elections were expended.
These allegations have fueled Pro and Anti Oshiomhole rallies around the country.

An action that was out of control till the security agencies came in to restore peace.
As events unfold, a lot will get clearer, but as it stands, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole legally seizes to be the National Chairman of the APC.
