They Plotted To Remove Me Because Of My Loyalty To President Buhari – Oyegun
The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun has revealed that he was targeted because of his loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari but he survived the plot because he didn’t do anything dishonourable.
The APC Chairman, who spoke in Bénin City, Edo State, where he was honoured as ‘Ogbe Eni’ (Elephant killer) by the Benin National Congress, said God vindicated him in allegations against him.
The revealed that his loyalty has pitted him against some of the bigwigs in the ruling APC but insisted that his background where disgrace to the family was not tolerated has guided him in all his endeavours.
“I grew up in an environment where bringing disgrace to the family is the worst thing you can possibly do; even the family will be the first to disown you,” he said.
“So, in all my life, this is the circumstance that has conditioned me. I do not do things that will not make me sleep soundly at night. I do nothing that will appear as headline in any of the national dailies.
“Yes, I have been through several trials, but, I have overcome them all. Why have I done so? Because, at the end of the day, whether detailed or forensic examination, you will not find that your own Oyegun has done something dishonorable.
“And so, with all the hue and cry, at the end of the whole thing, when we sit down, and ask, ‘tell us what he has done?’ Behold, the whole situation fizzled out.
He declared that President Buhari was God sent to Nigeria and is building a country on an economy that is based on the sweat of Nigerians.
“We will never again suffer from the collapse of crude oil. Today agriculture is booming, today we are self -sufficient in the production of agro products,” he continued.
“President Buhari has concluded plans to deliver 3,500 megawatts of electricity to us. We took over a totally collapsed country but today things have started to solidify, our economy is growing and Nigeria will never again experience that type of recession we witnessed.
“Change mantra is not electricity, is not water, but changing our morals, doing what is right, changing our attitude, a system that rewards competence and productivity.
“So we must change those bad aspects of our lives and we will enjoy the Nigeria that we all crave for and the Nigeria that President Buhari intends to put in place for all.
