How I survived plot to remove me – John Oyegun

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, on Thursday said he survived the plot to remove him from office because he didn’t do anything “dishonourable.”

Oyegun said he was targeted because of his “loyalty.”

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.

He said his background where disgrace to the family was not tolerated has guided him in all his endeavours.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari was God sent to Nigeria and is building a country on an economy that is based on the sweat of Nigerians.

Oyegun said Buhari was not elected by the elites but by ordinary Nigerians that believed in him.

He said: “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. 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.

“So, all my life this is the circumstance that has conditioned me. One I do nothing that will not make me not to have sound sleep, I do nothing that I will be afraid to see at the headline of any of the national dailies. Yes I have been put to several trials and I have overcome them all.”
