- The ruling APC needs two important things if it wants to remain as a party ahead of 2023: wisdom and extreme care
- These were the words of Buba Galadima, a former chieftain of the ruling party
- Galadima predicted that different factions in the party may break into pieces if care is not taken
Alhaji Buba Galadima, a former chieftain of the ruling APC has predicted that the alleged factions in the party might end up breaking it into pieces.
Vanguard reports that Galadima said wisdom and extreme care are the only two factors that can save the ruling party from blowing into pieces ahead of 2023.
Recall that the crisis in the APC reached its apex recently as President Muhammadu Buhari was compelled to intervene, leading to a dissolution of the party's leadership under Adams Oshiomhole.
The party subsequently appointed a caretaker committee assigned with the responsibility of reuniting members and producing a new leadership through a national convention.
Galadami, however, said the party still remains divided into three major factions: Oshiomhole/Tinubu faction, El- Rufai/Amaechi/Badaru faction, and the presidency faction.
The former APC chieftain claimed the presidency faction also has subdivisions.
“Unless there is wisdom, and perseverance is applied, they will never come together. Just like water and palm oil, they will never meet.
“It will be a fight-to-the-finish for the soul of the party because whosoever controls the executive would produce the presidential candidate of the party in 2023,” he said.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, declared that the ruling party has no crisis that will necessitate reconciliation.
Tinubu said this after having a closed-door meeting with the chairman of the party's caretaker committee, Governor Mala Buni, and other members in Lagos.
The former Lagos governor said “there is no crisis in the party, hence, no fight to reconcile.”
"We have no differences to be sorted out in the APC; we just had consultation and it is how our party, the APC, would continue to be a progressive party,” he said.
Buni who is also the governor of Yobe led other members of the APC national caretaker committee to the Lagos meeting with Tinubu.
The APC leader explained that the committee is for consultation and not reconciliation since there is no crisis in the party.
