APC Group To Tinubu: You May Not Have Platform To Contest 2023 Presidency by dre11(m): 9:58pm On Jun 12, 2020
*Says national leader gives tacit support to Oshiomhole’s impunity

Tunde Opalana, Abuja

A group of founding members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to demonstrate democratic leadership by wading into the multi – faceted crises rocking the party.

The group warned that should Tinubu fail to deploy his political engineering capacity to intervene in the crises now, he may not have a platform to actualise his presidential ambition come 2023.

In an open letter to Tinubu on Thursday, signed by Alh. Salihu Mustapha, Deputy National Chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) and eleven others, the group said urgent and sincere intervention of the former governor of Lagos state is needed before the conduct of the party’s governorship primaries in both Edo and Ondo states.

The group adduced the various crises at state chapters of APC to manifestation of injustices, and reckless abuse of power by the party leadership at the national sectetariat, especially the National Working Committee (NWC).

This is as the national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole was acussed of running the a one man National Working Committee of the party.

The National Chairman was castigated for writing a letter to INEC to change the official address of the Edo State chapter of APC contrary to Article 8 (page 6) of the APC Constitution, which also requires the approval of NEC.

In the same vein, Oshiomhole wss alleged to have drafted a PDP loyalist in person of Pastor Ize – Iyamu who fiercely fought against the election of President Buhari in February 2019 elections in Edo State into APC and anoint him as party’s candidate in the coming hovernorship poll.

The silence of Tinubu in the midst of recent crises rocking APC, it was alleged, has further enabled impunity by Oshiomhole,hence the need for the former Lagos state governor to take urgent reconciliatory steps.

“We expect that by now he should be able to provide incontestably fair leadership to all party members, through which some specific actions of the APC National Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole can be moderated and made to conform with internal due processes as provided in the provisions of the APC constitution, no matter how loosely defined given the motto of our great party – Justice, Peace and Unity.

“Let us not be misunderstood. We are not in any way, suggesting that Asiwaju jumps into the fray in the many of the festering and lingering internal disagreements within the APC, requiring reconciliation.

“We are also making this demand, bearing in mind that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is eagerly desirous of continuing from where PMB stops in 2023, and his response to issues of the day within the APC, will signposts how the soup will eventually taste.

“We made this assertion with all sense of responsibility based on the belief that our party deserve the best and we are proud to have some of the best democrats Nigeria has produced as leaders of our party.

“Therefore as one of the best democrats in the history of our country, Asiwaju need to categorically declare his position on many of the contentious decisions of the Comrade Oshiomhole’s NWC.

” This calls to question the democratic credentials of our party and with it the democratic orientation of our leaders in the party. Will our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, be on the side of fairness and democracy? The side of justice and reconciliation, or the side of impunity and disunity perpetrated by no other person than the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

“Clearly, as the National Leader, Asiwaju Tinubu will be doing party members a great deal of injustice without coming out and providing reconciliatory direction on this crucial matter of internal party disputes.

“We would not like to entertain the idea that the moral authority of our National Leader cannot be activated now, to put the APC on an even keel for more exploits in 2023 and beyond”, the group said..

The group, however, noted the political engineering capacity of the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the past, notably in January 2018, when President Buhari gave the task of reconciling leaders of the party to him.

However, it wondered “if there can be a reconciliation in an atmosphere of impunity perpetrated by the National Chairman of APC, which could not have been possible without the tacit green light from the National leader himself.

“We find it bewildering that just within a space of one month, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole had serially and violently violated the APC Constitution that the silence of Asiwaju, the National Leader is disconcerting.

“So, where is the National Leader when one man is desecrating the APC Constitution and at every turn killing the party?

“Is that the kind of party we would want to ride on in 2023? Is Nigerian politics about to witness the rebirth of former President Obasanjo’s draconian control of party structures as we move closer to 2023?

“It is time for Asiwaju Tinubu to demonstrate his democratic leadership. It is time he gives life to the institutionalization of APC and not create the perception that he is behind this brigandage that is tearing the APC apart, with severe consequences for the capacity of the party to hold on in one piece as we inch towards 2023.

“As democrats, we believe that such actions are reprehensible and condemnable. No leadership will condone such illegal actions that can only undermine the democratic ethos upon which APC stands”.

The group’s petition to Tinubu was also signed by Chief Polycap Udah, Captain Mohammed Bala Jibrin, Mr. Ray Morphy,
Alh. Umar Kachalla Zubair, Dr. Sylvanus Amechi.

Other members of the group are; Alh. Shaba Emangi, Chief Emeka Enechi Hon. Charles Idahosa, Hon. Mohammed Aboki Mahmud, Prince Mackor Shaka Momodu and Alh. Yesufu Omonemi.

Some few weeks ago, it was the prolific Mallam Nasir "Aubameyang" El-rufai that was hitting the nail of Asiwaju "Azpilecueta" Tinubu political coffin,

Now, just like the fraudulent Manchester City, the APC Uefa group have warned him seriously that he would not and should not participate in the 2023 Presidential Champions League because of his corrupt ways and evil antics to get the price.

Who will Asiwaju "Pep" Tinubu run to now?

Or should he just support his boy Prof Yemi "Arteta" Osibande who's currently the Chairman, "Use The Toilet Committee of Nigeria"?

Only time will tell.

If Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is destined to be president of Nigeria, it will surely come to pass. At the ripeness of time, key factors will combine favourably for him to fulfil his destiny. But if he is not destined for that exalted seat, he will never sit there. Atiku Abubakar is an example. He had things all set up and came very close as influential VP but today, he still far from the target.

In any case, APC cannot disintegrate because an unnecessarily rebellious Gov. Godwin Obaseki was schemed out of reckoning by the same person who schemed him in four years ago. So, Tinubu should be left out of this political fight between 'father and son'.

The truth is that no active politician anywhere in the world can tell you that he or she hasn't suffered one setback or another. So Obaseki should take this blow on his chin like a man, count his losses and move on a better politician.

This so-called group should be dragging Buhari (who happens to be the most influencial leader and member of the party), instead of trying to blackmail Tinubu. Tinubu is not from Edo state so the best he can do is remain neutral. The Edo folks should sort themselves. After all, Edo is not Lagos, so they should leave Tinubu out of it.

Where was this group when Tinubu's candidate was schemed out with inflated delegates during the Ondo state primaries of 2016?

Did John Oyegun who was the National Chairman of the party, not rule against the decision of the party organ that agreed there were irregularities in that Ondo primary?

Where was this group when Tinubu and Faleke were rubbished after the death of Abubakar Audu in Kogi after the election was 95% won, and a disloyal Yahaya Bello who never showed up to any party campaign after losing the APC primary to Audu, was allowed to reap a victory already won by others?

Tinubu and his supporters stayed put and worked for the success of the party.

Never have time for this lengthy write up. Whosoever happen to be the next president shall be at the range of 50yrs and below. Never will allow the calibre of these old men to steer the affairs of the nation again. Enough for the recycling of men who have nothing to add towards the development of our dear country.

Useless nonexistent group created by newspaper. When did Tinubu come out to say he would contest. That's how they made noise before 2019 election and all turned out to be lies and useless speculations
