Chief Bola Tinubu called for the resignation of Chief John Oyegun 

The PDP in Lagos however said Tinubu has lot the power to effect the removal of the APC chairman 

The party said Tinubu should try to take his mandate back if he has the ability to 

The Peoples Democratic Party has challenged Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to try and get back the control of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Tinubu has been at loggerhead with the leadership of the party following his public outburst on Sunday, September 25 calling for the resignation of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the chairman of the party due to the way the primary election in Ondo was handled.

Daily Trust reports that Moshood Salvador who is the chairman of the PDP in Lagos said it would be difficult for Tinubu to remove Oyegun.

He said it would be difficult for Tinubu to take control as he was tactically sent away from the party.

Salvador said this was the time for Tinubu to prove that he was a political heavyweight by taking charge of the party.

“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is somebody we believe is so smart and strategic, he is a tactician. “But, in APC, he didn’t know that he was used and dumped.

 They kept him outside the party, not within the party, and I was so surprised to see him staying outside the party and be feeling comfortable.

How can you fight inside the party when you are outside? So, he cannot remove Oyegun because he remains outside.

What is the meaning of party leader, our national Leader?” He said Tinubu had lost the party strictures in some state and it would be difficult to remove Oyegun.

 “As long as Oyegun is still with Buhari, there is nothing he (Tinubu) can do. It is laughable to call for his (Oyegun) resignation.”

Meanwhile, the former vice president Atiku Abubakar backed embattled national leader in his accusations against national chairman.

Premium Times quotes Atiku as saying in a statement released on Wednesday, September 28 that Tinubu was right to demand that Oyegun follow party rules.

He also noted that the APC is having challenges because it failed to follow its own rules.
