Nigeria - President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, warned that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) could collapse unless aggrieved members toed the path to peaceful conflict resolution.
He rang the alarm bells as the party held a virtual emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, which dissolved the National Working Committee led by the suspended National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
In its place, the meeting, after adopting all the President’s recommendations, named Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni as Caretaker National Chairman and Senator John Udoedeghe as Caretaker National Secretary.
“The issues currently confronting our party at this time are such that should worry every party member… It is obvious that the fortunes of the party are currently in jeopardy. The administration of our party is becoming impossible and there is consequently an urgent need for intervention to immediately arrest further drifts and internal wrangling, which may lead to total disintegration,” Buhari said.
He noted: “What we see clearly emerging is that we are beginning to self-destruct. This, my dear party members, is not just regrettable but utterly gut-wrenching.”
Speaking further on the need to end litigations, the President said: “The directive had been issued before, unfortunately, some members failed to heed the directive. Thus, at this time, it must be made a resolution of the party, which must be effectively enforced with dire consequences for members who choose to ignore the directive.”
He added: “We must be alive to the time and the task that is before us. As we all know, we are immediately confronted with the upcoming gubernatorial elections in Edo and Ondo States. Therefore, this is the time to get our acts together.”
Other members of the Caretaker Committee and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee are Isiaka Oyebola (South West); Ken Nnamani (South East); Stella Okorete (Women Representative); Dr. James Lalu (Physically Challenged Rep.); Senator Abubakar Yusuf (Senate Rep.); Hon. Akinyemi Olaide (Reps); David leon (South-South); Abba Ari (North West); Prof. Tahir Mamman (North East); and Ismail Ahmed (Youth).
