It seems there will continue to be crises in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). This followed a disclosure by the director-general of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Salihu Lukman.
According to him, the current leadership of the party led by Mai Mala Buni, is making the same mistake made by Adams Oshiomhole-led leadership.
He insisted that the same situation in which there is no meeting of the organs of the party is playing out under the Yobe state governor-led APCCECC.
He made this known in a statement issued on Monday and titled ‘APC’s Litmus Tests,' Punch reports.
He said it must be known if the caretaker committee is resolving issues that led to the dissolution of Oshiomhole-led NWC, The Cable added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that state chairmen of APC on Thursday, April 1, demanded immediate conduct of the party’s congresses to pave the way for the national convention to usher in a new National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
The party chairmen, under the auspices of the Forum of State Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress, told journalists in Abuja that it was time for the party to hold the national convention, billed for June, after the conclusion of the membership revalidation and registration.
The chairman of the forum and APC chairman in Borno state, Hon. Ali Dalori, said at a press conference attended by a Legit.ng reporter that the membership drive had increased the base of the party.
Legit.ng had also reported that dissatisfaction is growing in the APC over an alleged plot by some party chieftains to further extend the tenure of the Governor Buni-led caretaker committee.
Some interest groups are said to be warming up for a showdown should the Buni-led committee renege on its mandate to conduct a national convention in June 2021.
Recall that some aggrieved chieftains of the APC had planned to scuttle the membership registration and validation exercise in all state chapters with lawsuits.
