Governors Beg Buhari to Step In To Nigeria Ruling Party Fray

The problems began when Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki wasn't awarded an automatic ticket for reelection, after he was accused of forging his education qualifications. Adding to the party's woes is the continued suspension of its national chairperson Adams Oshiomhole, who made the allegations against Obaseki. The appointment of an acting national chairperson was also brought into question when former Oyo State governor Abiola Ajimobi was elected but was hospitalised for COVID-19, leaving the door open for Victor Giadom to declare himself acting party chairperson which was ratified by an Abuja court. Now the party's troubles go to Rivers State, where a high court has restrained Giadom from being a member of the party's national working committee.
