Crisis In APC: Party On The Verge Of Breaking

The mother of all crises is now looming within the fold of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over the last week’s visit of the leadership of the party to former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his private residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

A competent source within the party told the Nigerian Tribune in Abuja on Thursday that the visit to Chief Obasanjo would break the party unless the leadership that embarked on the journey “is able to convince members on why it embarked on such a shameful visit without consultation.”

APC leaders, including its interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande; former Head of State, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari; former Lagos State governor, Senator Bola Tinubu and a host of others had last week visited the former president in Abeokuta for what they described as “political consultation.”

However, it was gathered that the visit is generating ripples in the party as the leaders were said to have embarked on the visit without proper consultation with all the caucuses of the party and its zonal and state chapters.

“We are amazed with the visit, we don’t know the purpose, it is morally wrong, we don’t know what they are up to. Is APC a political party or a private enterprise?

The way things are going now, the party appears to have been hijacked by a clique within the party for selfish interest,” the source said.
