The National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Basiru, has embarked on a fierce battle to secure his stay in office, following steps taken by the former National Secretary and the Honourable Minister’s alleged plot to remove him from office. Sources close to the unfolding drama reveal that the primary reason behind this political turbulence is the 2026 governorship ticket.

The former National Secretary was reportedly removed by the Honourable Minister from the state due to his ambition to contest for the 2026 governorship ticket. Now, Basiru finds himself in a similar predicament, facing the same fate as his predecessor. However, unlike the former National Secretary, Basiru is not prepared to passively accept such a fate.

Basiru, leveraging his influential position as the National Secretary, has allegedly resorted to employing unconventional tactics to defend his position. One such tactic involves putting forth a fraudulent concession of a seaport case about the incumbent Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola. This move is seen as an attempt to create a distraction for the Honourable Minister, thereby hindering further plots against him.

A close ally to Basiru, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, disclosed that Basiru believes that by keeping the Honourable Minister preoccupied with defending himself, he will be less likely to focus on further plotting his removal from office. Basiru’s strategy appears to be centered on creating enough noise and confusion to shield himself from imminent political threats.

As the power tussle within the Osun APC continues to escalate, all eyes are on Basiru as he navigates the complex web of political intrigues in a bid to maintain his grip on power. The coming days will undoubtedly reveal the outcome of this high-stakes political showdown.
