Osinbajo And El-Rufai Clash APC NWC To Mediate - El-Rufai Made An Uncomplimentary Remark On Osinbajo Who Walked Out Of A Meeting Which Had Buhari In Attendance.


The APC NWC is to look into the face-off between the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, referred to in some quarters as the ‘unofficial Vice President’.

El-Rufai was alleged to have made an uncomplimentary remark on Osinbajo, who protested and eventually walked out of a meeting, which had Buhari in attendance.
Before leaving, a furious Osinbajo allegedly told Buhari: “I am an elected Vice President and would not sit down here and allow a governor to insult me.”

An NWC member told Vanguard that the leadership of APC was not comfortable with the incident and would not sit idly while the Vice President was being treated as a puppet.
The source noted that the crises in APC, especially the management of the party’s success at the general elections, was becoming a big headache for members.
Another issue is the power rift between former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, former governor of Osun State, Bisi Akande and national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, over who becomes APC Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman.
