Oshiomhole Mistaking APC For Labour Movement– Ogunlewe


Ex minister, works and housing and a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP chieftain, Adeseye Ogunlewe has cautioned the Adams Oshiomhole-led All Progressives Congress [APC] not to mistake a political party for a labour union.
The former minister who made the observation while speaking on Politics Today in Channel’s TV on Thursday, said the arrogance displayed by the leadership of APC will only frustrate the party’s chance come 2019.
Although, Ogunlewe did not directly mention Oshiomhole’s name but the manner at which he kept alluding to APC not being a ‘Labour union’ points his talks to the [Oshiomhole] who was a former Labour union leader.
While answering a question on question on what motivated APC lawmakers to defect to PDP, Ogunlewe replied, “One factor, is the tendencies of governors placing overbearing pressures on lawmakers…and there instances where lawmakers are also presumed by electorate as surrogates of
certain god-fathers, that is not so…this people have constituents and that must be respected.”
He added that the way political parties in Nigeria are managed could sometimes be very infuriating
“Some party leaders are so arrogant that they talk carelessly to their subject ..election is not one person’s prerogative; the APC is not a labour movement or party, it is a party of very respected Nigerians,. Oyegun was a permanent Secretary when I was in Primary school.
Ogunlewe noted that the more the party continue to criminalise people like the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his superior Bukola Saraki who is the number three man in the nation, the party will continue to loses its credibility at the grassroot.
Recall Oshiomhole had said he could not lose sleep over APC lawmakers who defected to PDP.
During an APC caucus meeting yesterday, Oshiomhole also ruled out the likelihood of offering  the APC’s legislators automatic tickets  as a way of making them to remain in the party.
