Oshiomhole Powerless, Empty, Only Has The Title Of ‘National Chairman’ -Tanko Yakassai


Kaduna – Worried by the lack of respect accorded to leaders of various political parties in the country, the vocal elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai has advised that powers should be given back to the elected party leaders.

Speaking with Independent, Alhaji Yakassai urged that political parties in the country must be reformed, be oriented through ideologies, programmes of what they want to do for the people so that people will begin to appreciate and respect them.

Yakassai said this can only be achieved if power is given back to elected party leaders.
According to him, “Powers of political parties must be returned to the members of the party”.

“You cannot rise to the position of even a messenger in a political party at the state or national level without the blessings or nod of your governor or the president”.
The elder statesman who frowned at the rate at which party leaders are being disrespected, blamed former President Olusegun Obasanjo whom he said, was responsible for whittling down the powers of elected party leaders and their structure.

This, as it is known, has led to the party chairmen across all platforms and at the various tiers; ward, local, state and national levels, to their being unable to control and direct the affairs of the various political parties.

“Obasanjo who made himself the leader of the party, also made governors, leaders of the party in their respective states and this has continued till now.
“You cannot become a messenger, chairman or even a secretary of the party, without the blessing of either your governor or the president. So, the party members, rather than respect party leaders, give their alleigance to the president or governors whom they feel are the only people they need.

“The first thing we should do, is to take back that power and return it to leaders of the party. With that, party members would respect their party leaders, attend meetings and this would give the party a direction and, the members sense of belonging.
Yakassai, who took a swipe at the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole said, “Oshiomhole as the APC National Chairman, cannot make you, even a member of the State House of Assembly.
“He has only the name of National Chairman. He has no powers, he s empty, the partymen know that their party leaders are empty.

“But, if Buhari says you should be this or that, automatically, you will be so, and this also applies to states where the state governors also call the shots”, Yakassai lamented.

Not in Nigeria, here the national chairman and state chairmen stays at the mercy of the president and state Governors.
If the chairman want the office to be respected, the NWC members will out of greed tell the president or Governor that the chairman is not loyal hence shld be remove anyhow.
Abeg Nigeria's politics is not for sane mind.
