The crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is taking a turn for the worse as Tinubu seem to have out smarted Oyegun and Buhari.
A peace meeting was scheduled for last week Tuesday to resolve the governorship primaries in Ondo State won by Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu.
Another one has been scheduled for today at the instance of the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
However, National Leader of the ruling APC, Bola Tinubu, suddenly developed ailment needing medical attention abroad.
Tinubu and Oyegun have had serious faceoff following the manner his preferred candidate was edged out of Ondo primaries.
Akeredolu got the blessings of some APC leaders including, Oyegun, some ministers, and Buhari himself.
It is no longer hidden that the Abuja caucus is backing Akeredolu while the Lagos caucus is backing Oke.
Tinubu’s sudden ailment and travel seem to buttress the notion that he is not favorably disposed to attending any meeting with Odigie-Oyegun.
A source within the party said, “I know that the national chairman called for a meeting for November 8.
“The invitation was extended to some leaders including Chief Bisi Akande and Tinubu.
“What the agenda is, I don’t know but obviously the national leader is currently in Chicago and may definitely not attend the meeting.”
This news house believes Tinubu’s travel was behind the reason why President Buhari cancelled his planned visit to Ondo State.
“For instance, it would look abnormal if President Buhari goes to Ondo to campaign for Akeredolu and Tinubu fails to follow him.
“The best bet for him is to stay out of the country until the Ondo election is conducted,” a source said.
