The APC is becoming a threat to Buhari’s regime — Oyegun


The immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has opined that the APC was fast becoming a threat to the regime of the President.

The former chairman said this in a statement he signed in Abuja, on Saturday.

According to him, the tenure of the president’s performance will be judged by its infrastructural development as well as its politics.

Oyegun referenced the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election by a former military dictator, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida.

In the statement titled ‘Before its too Late’, he said, “Our own political party, the APC, is fast becoming the single most dangerous threat to the legacy of our government and our President.

“In the last few months, we have watched how the party has brazenly subverted its own principles of internal democracy and flagrant violation of every rule of decent political engagement in a manner that makes everyone associated with its promise of change liable to be accused of either hypocrisy or apostasy.”

He explained that at the beginning, when he and others came together to build a coalition of progressives back in 2012, they were driven by a deep sense of patriotism to rescue Nigeria and a strong commitment to save Nigeria’s democracy.

“We believed at the time that the ship of our country was headed for the rocks. Therefore, the significant progressive opposition parties and indeed all men and women of goodwill joined forces, not only to bring it back on course but also to set it on a completely different trajectory that would restore the hopes of our people and make every Nigerian proud of this great country again.”

The former party chairman asked leaders of the party to convene a National Executive Committee meeting of the party and immediately to set up interim management to pilot the affairs of the party in order to return the party to a position of strength.
