- There are fears that the APC may get into more trouble if nothing is done fast
- Some former lawmakers have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to make sure the ruling party's crisis is resolved in no time
- The APC members said that the party's leadership has landed it into its current unrest
Former members of the House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to act fast concerning the party's crisis.
The former lawmakers said that unless President Buhari acts fast to resolve the unrest in the ruling party, a lot can go wrong, Sahara Reporters reports.
They raised fears that the problem which started from the rivalry between Governor Godwin Obaseki and Adams Oshiomhole can cause the party to implode, adding that the party is at the verge of retrogress by its obviously incompetent leadership.
The APC members said in a joint letter to Buhari: "The flagrant misconduct of the current party leadership is curious, unacceptable and incurable.
"The party is also legendary for its nonchalance towards timely intervention and resolution of internal party squabbles."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a prominent law professor, Itse Sagay (SAN), had advised President Buhari not to attend the APC's National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting called by Victor Giadom on Thursday, June 25.
One, the senior lawyer said Giadom had no right to summon the meeting because as a deputy national secretary, he was not in line to succeed the national chairman.
Two, Sagay said the ex-parte order which affirmed Giadom as acting chairman had since lapsed.

His words: “I’m stunned by this turn of events. How can a deputy national secretary have the ambition to be the chairman of a party when you have deputy chairmen and vice-chairmen?
“That is why it is absurd. It does not make sense. His position makes it impossible for him to be the acting national chairman.
“Second, he is relying on an ex-parte order in which he alone was present and the court gave him an interim order in March. These orders last for 14 days."
Also, the governor of Kebbi state, Abubakar Bagudu, had revealed why his APC colleagues were pushing for a meeting of the NEC.
Bagudu who was the chairman of the APC Governors Forum said the progressive governors wanted NEC to hold in a bid to find lasting solutions to the crisis in the party.
Legit.ng gathered that Bagudu said the APC governors were united in the search for an immediate and lasting solution to the crises in the party.
