…….Says there Can Never Be Peace In APC’

A former Deputy National Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has affirmed that the crisis in the ruling party will never end.

According to the party chieftain, there can never be peace until the day the party explodes, adding that the way the party is run is wrong.

He pointed to the fact that the current National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Ganduje, was noted voted for, did not buy any nomination form but was appointed.

Nabena added that things are even worse when the chairman sees the position of chairmanship as compensation for not being the vice President.

He said, “There can never be peace in APC, judging by the way they run the party. The foundation is faulty. There can never be peace until the day the party will explode. The way they are running the party is wrong. There will not be peace in a party with a chairman nobody voted for.

“He didn’t buy any nomination form to contest for the position but was appointed. And because he is appointed by Mr President, he acts as if every other person does not matter.

“It is even worse when the chairman sees the position as compensation for not being the vice president. It becomes more painful when he, like his predecessors, enters Aso Villa and imposes decisions on members as what the President said just because others don’t have access to the Villa. So, they adopt name-dropping.

“The party exploding is just a matter of time because when was the last time they called for NEC meeting based on constitutional provision? Most of the members of the NWC are just appointed and they don’t know what the party stands for. We lost Bayelsa because the party chairman does not even know what it takes to win an election having lost his election in Kano.

“We have seen the crisis in Edo state that led to re-conducting the primary before the candidate could emerge. Ondo state is building up and nobody knows what will be the outcome. The party cannot do the right thing because nobody is checkmating anybody.

“They embark on collecting money from the aspirants and it has become a tradition to go for the highest bidder. They will collect from every aspirant. We must understand that party leaders are not employed. They don’t have a job or collect salaries. They pay themselves and they are not accountable to anybody.”

Nabena also alleged that the presidency supported Governor Douye Diri against Timipre Sylva, his party’s candidate in the November last year Bayelsa State governorship election, announcing bluntly that President Bola Tinubu is yet to impress him in the areas of economy, security few months to his first anniversary.
