Fresh Crisis Looms as APC, Stakeholders Disagree Over Winning Chances in Anambra, Osun, Ekiti
The intra- party crisis rocking the ruling party in Nigeria does not seem to end soon.
Vanguard reports that concerned stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday, October 22, disagreed on the party’s chances of winning the Anambra, Osun, Ekiti states governorship and the 2023 general elections.
While the party boasted of its numerical strength, which it placed at over 40 million, to win these elections, the stakeholders in the party said APC would not win elections with faulty congresses and convention.
But the National Secretary of the APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, who declared the party’s position at the National Secretariat of the party while inaugurating State Congress Appeal Committees, said:
“You all will agree with me that the process of recalibrating our party into a functional winning machine in 2023 is well on course.“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti and to the 2023 general elections.”Senator Akpanudoedehe through the party’s official Facebook page, noted that the APC led-government of President Muhammadu Buhari means well for Nigerians and is doing everything possible to deliver infrastructure amid difficult economic times, globally.’’
”All true party men and women must see dissensions within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in times past.“As a party, we shall ensure that channels of communication are kept open, as in the instant case and as dictated by the constitution of our party. This Appeals Committee is part of the internal mechanisms, so that those who may feel dissatisfied with the states congresses can approach the committee and ventilate their grievances through this avenue.
Governor Makinde also noted that since Nigeria’s return to democracy in 1999, all the presidents the nation has had emerged “were called”.
