The former presidential appointee said that unless the APC rebrands, reforms and repositions itself, winning the next presidential poll will be very difficult, if not impossible.

He said: “If the APC fails to reform, rebrand and reposition itself, it will send a message of gloom to Nigerians and will make selling the party in the next general election a daunting task.

“The APC has not been blessed with strong leadership since its inception. This has seen the fortunes of the party progressively declining."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the defection of the former speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara's from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC on Friday, July 24, took many Nigerians by surprise.

Dogara's defection to APC might not be unconnected to Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war and 2023 presidential election.

After Dogara's defection, a source said that his exit from the PDP was not unconnected to the activ­ities of anti-graft agencies, probing some past and pres­ent political holders.

Dog­ara might have panicked and dumped the PDP to avoid un­foreseen circumstances.

Reacting to this develop­ment, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), said that APC may have lured Dog­ara into APC, using the propa­ganda of northern Christian VP to Tinubu.

CUPP, in a statement by its spokesman, Ikenga Imo Ugo­chinyere said: “I hope they have not used the propaganda of northern Christian VP to Tinubu to lure my very good friend to the APC party that might not survive the upcom­ing intraparty 2023 crisis."
