Speaking to Vanguard on Thursday, Omo-Agege said that he and other members of the party would resist any attempt to remove Oshiomhole.

He said: “I am not aware of any move to replace Oshiomhole and to the extent that there is any such move, it will fail. It will fail because I know that Oshiomhole enjoys the confidence of Mr. President, he enjoys the confidence of who is who in the Presidency.

“Yes, there are lots of agitations and allegations flowing from the primaries. You will imagine that as a family that there are bound to be problems after the primary, it is the ability of the party to address the post-primary challenges that make it strong or otherwise.

“I know that a reconciliation committee is about to be put in place and leaders are going to reach out to those who are aggrieved, but I can tell you there is no legitimate move to go after Oshiomohle’s seat.

“I repeat, to the extent that it is being contemplated, we will resist it and it will fail. We are talking seriously and you are talking about people who do not matter in the party. For the major stakeholders, there is nothing like that, we are satisfied with the stewardship of Comrade Oshiomhole.”
