Abdulmajid Danbilki Commander, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano has accused the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of trying to choose the new leadership of the Senate through autocratic means.
Commander claimed that Tinubu was calling the shots in the politics of the north, the APC and the selection of executive members of the National Assembly, Daily Trust reports.
Commander, in a statement signed on Sunday, April 7, said that northern politicians should separate themselves from Tinubu's alleged dictatorship.
The APC chieftain said: “Affirming that it would be foolhardy for politicians in the north to play second fiddle in the present democratic dispensation, I wondered why northern politicians should allow Tinubu to dictate the tune of northern politics at the expense of those who had fought tooth and nail in making the APC formidable positing that the rot that had permeated the party in the past as a result of leadership crisis could be partly attributed to his dictatorial permutations."
He said northern politicians would no longer be puppets used only to advance the agendas of some favoured politicians.

In his statement, Commander said that the decision must prevail over the selfish wishes of some persons in power.
