Aggrieved members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in their hundreds on Thursday’s morning protested at the national secretarial of the party asking for the sack of the National Organising Secretary, Sen. Osita Izunaso, over the recent Congresses, especially in Imo state.
The protesters were seen carrying placards with inscription “Sen. Osita must go.”
The group led by a serving House of Assembly lawmaker in Nasarawa state, Hon. Kassim Muhammad Kassim, also accused Sen. Osita of indirectly working for opposition People Democratic Party (PDP) to frustrate the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
In a complaint letter addressed to the APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, dated 17th May, 2018 the group also called for a fresh ward congress and some other states where there are issues to be settled.
President Muhammadu Buhari, Commissioner of Police in FCT, Director of DSS in FCT were also copied in the letter.
The letter read: “We humbly wish to write and formally notify you of our grievances toward the recently concluded ward congress of the party in Imo State.
“Sir, the National Organising Secretary of APC, Sen. Osita Izunaso is hell bent on causing confusion in Imo state to frustrate Owelle Rochas Okorocha out of the party. We are not comfortable with the development and demand that he should be sacked immediately.
“We also want to notify the National Working Committee that Sen. Osita Izunaso is playing the script of opposition to deliver South-East for his sole interest.”
It, however, took the intervention of the stationed Police and other security at the APC house to prevent the protesters from gaining entrance into secretariat.
