DSS Grills Oshiomhole Over Bribe Allegations
The chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, was detained and questioned by the department of state services over the conduct of the party’s primaries.

Oshiomhole, who was grilled by operatives of the service in Abuja on Monday, was said to have been accused of collecting bribes from some aspirants.

The APC primary elections conducted in different states have seen lots of eyebrows raised by some members of the party.

This has also led to the defection of some prominent party members to other political parties.

The APC primaries were marred by controversies. Elections in some states had to be repeated.

In Zamfara, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said the party will not participate in the 2019 polls because it could not successfully conclude its primary before the deadline.

In Imo, the APC favoured the governorship candidacy of Hope Uzodimma, senator representing Imo west, over Uche Nwosu, son-in-law of Rochas Okorocha, governor the state.

Ibikunle Amosun, Ogun governor, fell out with the partyโ€™s national working committee (NWC) after it chose Dapo Abiodun as the stateโ€™s gubernatorial candidate. Abiodun Akinlade is Amosunโ€™s preferred candidate.

A number of APC governors have expressed disappointment over the way the national leadership of the party had gone about the issues, hence the move against Oshiomhole.
