Buhari Meets Aggrieved APC Members Of HoR
It is safe to say the All Progressives Congress is in crisis with over 70 of their members in the House of Reps now aggrieved after being denied the opportunity to re-contest for their seats.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday summoned them to the Presidential Villa, Abuja and the meeting lasted for about one and half hours, behind closed door.
Musa Soba, representing Soba constituency in Kaduna state, who spoke after the meeting, said they were summoned by the president to present their complaints arising from the conduct of the APC primaries.
Soba revealed that they appealed to the president to use his good office to intervene in what they described as impunity exhibited by some state governors and APC leadership in the affected states to deny them tickets to contest for the election.
He lamented undue exclusion and lack of transparency in the primaries conducted by the APC and urged the president to remedy the situation before it was too late.
Hussaini Kangiwa, who also attended the meeting, allegedly accused some elders in the state of hijacking APC structure.
Kangiwa, who was an aspirant for Kebbi North Senatorial District, also accused the APC leadership in the state of nepotism in the selection of candidates for the 2019 National Assembly elections.
The lawmaker warned that the APC risked losing Kebbi to the opposition party if the president failed to intervene to right the wrongs.
The Baba sope brand of godfatherism is obviously now reigning in Nigerian politics across all the regions with state governors suddenly demanding the respect they could not earn in eight years of leadership.
How the APC will survive the crisis caused by them is what Nigerians are waiting to witness in 2019.
