This few weeks haven’t been too fair to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress.
First was his internal crisis with some of the state governors who claimed he had imposed candidates on them, then his deputy chairman Shaiubu called for his resignation.
As if that was not enough, the Chairman got more than he bargained for during President Muhammadu Buhari’s swearing-in and Democracy day when he stood between the acting chief justice of Nigeria and service chiefs. Ibrahim Muhammad.
Oshiomhole stood between the Vice President of Nigeria; the Senate President Bukola Saraki; The speaker of the House of Assembly Yakubu Dogara and the Service Chiefs while waiting for President Buhari’s arrival at the Eagle’s square.
A military officer walked up to him and whispered what seems to be an excuse from the line, Oshiomhole relocated while Abayomi Olonishakin, Chief of Defence staff occupied his space.
