With the worsening crisis that has engulfed the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, has called on warring groups to consider the party’s general interest as opposed to personal political interests being pursued by some.
Nabena, who spoke to newsmen Monday in Abuja, warned his party not to allow the crisis to degenerate to the level of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) taking advantage.
The APC chieftain said: “Let no one think he or she has a greater stake or interest of the APC. At our different levels, we have toiled and made contributions towards the sustenance and growth of the governing APC that many party men and women have used as a political platform for election and appointment. The APC is nobody’s personal property.
“I call on President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader of the party, the National Assembly leadership and well-meaning members of the caucus to urgently wade into the crisis and restore order to the party.
“We are progressives and our leaders have a duty to provide counsel and leadership so that we don’t go the way of the failed PDP.
“The APC has serious business to deal with, particularly, contestations in some state chapters, rancorous primaries, preparation for governorship elections in Ondo and Edo states and troubleshooting the circumstances surrounding our electoral and legal losses, particularly in Zamfara, Rivers, Adamawa and Bayelsa states.”
