Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Yekini Nabena, on Saturday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to convene a National Executive Committee meeting to save the ruling party from collapsing.
Nabena, who spoke in Abuja, expressed worry that the APC was drifting towards disintegration and urgent actions must be taken to halt the imminent disaster.
He said, “I call on our dear President to accede to the request by a majority of well-meaning party members and leaders and convene an emergency NEC meeting to address the leadership crisis and deliberate on consolidating the APC’s control of Edo and Ondo States ahead of the forthcoming governorship elections.”
He stated that the President’s position as the leader of the ruling party placed him on the highest pedestal to call all members of the party to order.
Nabena said President Buhari should use his position to convene an emergency NEC meeting “because the crisis within the party should not be allowed to degenerate further.”
He alleged that Victor Giadom, who is now parading himself as the party’s acting National Chairman, was acting out a script of certain individuals who didn’t wish the APC well.
He added, “At least four people are laying claim to the chairmanship of the APC following the court-ordered suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“All manner of Court cases and orders are flying around contesting party decisions and National Working Committee positions. Factions are festering at the national level and many states. The APC is clearly at a tipping point.”
