Share This

By Ikechukwu Okaforadi

Some protesting members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) yesterday thronged the headquarters of the party, asking President Muhammadu Buhari and members of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) to, in the next seventy two hours, to sack the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
Speaking while leasing the protesting members of the party, the convener of the protest, Ogenyi Okpokwu, said it was a warning protest, saying after the 72 hours, if nothing is done to convene NEC meeting or sack the NWC, they will proceed to the states with their protest.
He said the NWC should be ashamed as they have become the shadows of the APC ideology, for them to wake up any time and declare themselves chairmen at will, it means they have become lawless, adding that such cannot be accepted by the members of the party.
According to him, “The aims and objectives of the Party is being bastardised, the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari is being destroyed, his hard earned reputation is being dragged by the incessant activities of the National Working Committee of our Party.
“This present National Working Committee has caused us to loose seven (7) States to the opposition. APC had twenty four (24) Governors before the present National Working Committee, today, we have eighteen (18) Governors. Just yesterday, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State has just left us and joined the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Are we making progress or going backwardness?
“Today, we have four individuals who are members of the National Working Committee parading themselves as Acting National Chairmen of our Party, what a dance of shame! We are being ridicule on daily bases. The same Working Committee caused the Party not to feature candidates in Zamfara and Rivers States in the 2019 general elections.
“In 2019, our Party, the All Progressives Congress Progressives built on integrity and Anti corruption sold it nomination forms three hundred percent (300%) above all other political parties even when we cried out, they went ahead with their evil plot against concerned Party Members.
“The uncoordinated activities of the National Working Committee has given rooms to the low esteem opposition members to criticize our Party and the government. It is on record, that no previous administration was able to achieve half of what President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has achieved in five(5)years, yet, Mr. President is being distracted on daily bases by the people who ought to protect his legacy.”
Ogenyi said just as the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is killing corruption before corruption kills Nigeria, as a Party, APC must do away with the present National Working Committee before it kills the party completely.
He called on the National Executive Committee to immediately call for NEC meeting and dissolve the National Working Committee with immediate effect.
“We also call on President Muhammadu Buhari whose integrity the Party is still surviving, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu the National Leader of our great Party, the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmed Lawan, Speaker of the House of Representatives, rt.hon. Femi Gbajablamila to support the dissolution of the present National Working Committee if we must move on as a Party.
“We wish to unequivocally state that, any attempt to further keep this National Working Committee as the Working Committee of the Party is to send the APC into its early grave”, he said.
