Crises in APC: Governors say party is going into extinction, issues warning

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governors have issued a warning concerning the crises that have reportedly taken over the party saying these may lead to the destruction of the political organisation.

The governors issued the warning when they visited the leadership of the ninth National Assembly in Abuja on Monday, October 7.

According to the Premium Times reports that the governors reportedly said they were not happy with the lack of cooperation between elected members of the executive arm of government and the legislature.

Led by Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state, the governors said they visited to present the report of the forum’s sub-committee on legislative matters, chaired by the Governor of Katsina, Aminu Masari.

Speaking at the meeting, Masari said the absence of coordination among them and other elected members of the party could end up destroying it.

“As leaders, we need to make amends especially in the area of management of political relations among all the party stakeholders. We need not remind ourselves of what happened between 2015 and 2019.

“The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) has a standing subcommittee on legislative matters that started in the last Assembly. But unfortunately, no success came out for obvious reasons,” he said

He said the governors decided to contact the National Assembly early enough so as to put machinery in motion in making sure they worked together.

“We have itemised some areas which we want to discuss for the purpose of this courtesy call. The details will come when your subcommittee and our subcommittee meet and discuss in detail.

“We can recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently reminded us of our responsibilities in providing leadership to and prioritise the building of strong relationships between all elected representatives both in the executive and legislative arms of government, as well as our party leaders,” he added.

He said the APC has not managed its affairs in the right manner adding that there had not been broad consultations from its leadership thus giving opposition parties an edge.

“We know what happened in the build-up to 2019, the crisis we have in so many states within our own political party. I am referring to those crises that could have been avoided.
