The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomole, will return to the country before November 18, 2018, a source within the party has said.
This comes after the embattled party chairman travelled to the United States “because of a personal matter”, another party source told Daily Trust.
Oshiomole is slated to return well before next Saturday, because of the federal constituency by-election in Kwara State.
“He will surely return before the official commencement of presidential and National Assembly campaigns on November 18. Don’t forget that the APC will also be participating in the by-election in Kwara State. So, the chairman is coming back to lead the campaigns,” he said.
Oshiomhole had left the country early morning of Wednesday in the midst of the furore caused by his reported interrogation by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Sunday and Monday, over alleged fraudulent activities during the APC primaries held in some states.
An aggrieved aspirant for Enugu West Senatorial District ticket, Osita Okechukwu, had on Thursday said that Oshiomhole seemed to have “run away to evade the substitution window meant to redress the grievances of the casualties of his inactions.”
There had been calls for Oshiomole to be removed ahead of next year’s polls, a situation that’s led to several reconciliation meetings between President Muhammadu Buhari and some of the governors.
