Thirty nine percent of respondents in a Daily Trust survey shows that Nigerians support All Progressives Congress  (APC) chieftain Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu as the the right person in the feud with the Party’s National chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

 

The crisis started when Tinubu, in a statement, called for the resignation of the Oyegun following the party’s governorship primary in Ondo State, which produced Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as the candidate for the November 26 governorship election in the state.

Tinubu had faulted Oyegun for overruling the decision of the party’s National Working Committee that upheld the decision of the Appeal Committee which recommended the cancellation of the primary.

Oyegun had said he was engrossed in the preparations for the Edo State governorship poll, and initially refused to take issue with Tinubu, who he said he held in high esteem.


The online survey which had a total of 837 respondents started from 10/06/2016 – 10/20/2016 on the Daily Trust website.

The 39 percent makes up 326 respondents who support Tinubu in the feud.

However 217 respondents making up 26 percent feels Oyegun is the right party in the feud and 6 percent of the respondents making up 50 votes are "undecided."

While a whopping 28 percent about 234 persons said they were "not interested" in the feud.
