APC crisis deepens as youth group calls for boycott of February 26 convention, gives reasons

Recall that more stakeholders in the APC had joined the clamour for the postponement of the ruling party's planned February 26 national convention.

As highlighted by other faithful, the APC Youth Development and Progressive Forum said some northern governors have hijacked the ruling party.

The youth group said these northern governors are pushing for a convention that could ultimately destroy the party.

Speaking at a briefing attended by Legit.ng in Abuja on Monday, the group's secretary-general, Tobias Ogbeh, called on members of the group and other party stakeholders to boycott the exercise.

Ogbeh said boycotting the party's national conference slated to take place on Saturday, February 26, is the only way of saving the day.

He said it has become apparent that the cabal of some northern governors has shredded the last vestige of democracy around them to give reign to full-blown dictatorship in the APC.

He also added that with the lingering factional crisis in over 16 states across the country, the party was headed for destruction should it proceed with the convention.

Ogbeh said that mass defection and legal tussle awaited the party if the February 26th convention was not postponed.
