Shittu in an interview he granted newsmen against the backdrop of  Senator Lawal Shuaibu’s letter to Oshiomhole in which the  APC Deputy National Chairman (North) asked the former Edo governor to resign honourably over alleged failure to improve the party’s fortune concurred with the writer.

The ex-minister, who is at daggers drawn with the immediate past Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi and Oshiomhole over his disqualification from the State APC governorship primary on account of his NYSC palaver in the run up to the general election, hit out at the former labour leader.

He said, “The truth is: with Oshiomhole, this party would go down by the time President Muhammadu Buhari finishes his second term. Oshiomhole is full of himself and he has an ego problem and wants to dominate every environment and democracy is not like that.

“I know that many of us who are conscionable members of the party who think of the future of this party and the fact that this party should continue to be relevant even after President Buhari has left office would stand by this call. We are concerned and everything that we can do to force him out, we will do it.”
