A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Mr. John Mayaki, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to watchout for saboteurs within and outside his government to avoid plunging the country into an unimaginable crisis.

Mayaki expressed concern that alleged saboteurs haven’t learnt any lessons from ‘EndSARS’ protest, adding that if care is not taken, the country could erupt in another unimaginable crisis over “the poor implementation of the Naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under the watch of Mr. Godwin Emefiele”.

The APC chieftain in a statement issued in Benin City said, “As it stands today, all fingers point to a suspicious agenda to derail the country by some persons within the corridors of power.

“These persons are working in cohort with the candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alh. Atiku Abubakar to blackmail the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as anti-Nigerians to win the votes of gullible Nigerians in the February 25th presidential election.

“Nigerians see Emefiele as an interested party in this election and had expected him to resign his office after failing to actualise his presidential ambition as CBN Governor but he got the support of these ‘elements in the presidency’ to continue in office, so as to stop the candidate of the ruling party, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.

“We are not unaware of the failed plot to foist an unpopular candidate on the party during the presidential primaries of our great party by these “elements” so as to give the candidate of the opposition an easy ride at the polls.

“They invented several unknown formulas – wanted Mr. President to anoint an unpopular candidate in an undemocratic manner but they failed.”
