“APC Has Failed Woefully”: 3 Shots New Faction Fired At Ruling Party
It is no longer news that a splinter group has emerged from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The new group, Reformed All Progressive Congress (R-APC) has Buba Galadima as its National Chairman.
The break away faction said it was forced to take the decision because of what it described as the consistent impunity by leaders of the APC.
Here are the three major reasons the group gave for leaving the ruling party six months to the 2019 polls.
1. ‘WORSE THAN PDP’
The faction described the APC government as a “monumental disaster – even worse than the government it replaced (the Peoples Democratic Party).
The faction noted that APC has been running an incompetent government at the center--one that has failed to deliver good governance to the Nigerian people.
The faction said having brought in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC was “rendered powerless by manipulations and complete lack of due process in its operations.”
2. ‘POOR PERFORMANCE’
The faction said part of their grievances include the manner the affairs of the ruling party are being conducted.
“There has been widespread disenchantment with the manner the party has been run, and the conduct and performance of our governments”, R-APC said, adding that the nPDP has on its part “made strenuous efforts to invite attention to inequities, injustice and poor management in our party without any success.”
“The nPDP had shown good faith and commitment to the party, but it has been rewarded with indifference and even contempt,” they added.
It is obvious that the leadership of the APC has decided to shut out members of the APC, as well as other members who have raised genuine grievances and a desire to improve the responsiveness of the APC to the desire of members for a party founded on democratic principles.
3. LACK OF POLITICAL WILL
The R-APC also accused leaders of the APC of lacking political will to improve the condition of the party.
The party is currently enmeshed in various challenges including multiple factional executives at the state and local government level.
“There is no evidence of any political will to reverse the decline of our party, while leaders who have created these circumstances continue to behave as if Nigerians owe our party votes as a matter of right,” the R-APC said.
