CHAOS IN APC CAMP: OSINBAJO COLLIDES WITH AMAECHI OVER ONNOGHEN



Sahara Reporters understands that while Amaechi and his allies — including Okoi Obono-Obla, Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery Public Property (SPIP) — remain bent on removing Onnoghen from office by any possible means, Osinbajo has continued to maintain that the CCT option is not in line with due legal process.
