More Trouble For APC As Tinubu’s Loyalists Want Breakaway
* His Ordeal Is A Judgment From God - Bode George
*Pulling ACN Bloc Out Now Will Be Premature- Ubani


Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Despite the far-reaching deci­sions taken by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ruling All Progressives Con­gress (APC) last week, the crisis rocking the party appears far from being over, Daily Independent has gathered.

Findings by our correspondent revealed that some loyalists of Asi­waju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of APC, who are apparently miffed by the latest devel­opments in the party, are demanding a pull-out of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) fold from the APC fam­ily on the basis that there are plans by some power brokers to muscle out Tinubu from the affairs of the party.

It would be recalled that the APC came into existence in February 2013 following a merger that involved the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) led by Tinubu, Con­gress for Progressives Change (CPC) led by President Mu­hammadu Buhari, All Nige­ria Peoples Party (ANPP) led by Ogbonnaya Onu, and a faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) led by Rochas Okorocha, former gov­ernor of Imo State.

Following the multiple liti­gations and leadership tussle in the party which led to the suspension of the National Chairman, Adams Oshiom­hole, President Buhari and the NEC last Thursday dis­solved the National Working Committee (NWC) and con­stituted a Caretaker/Extraor­dinary Convention Planning Committee headed by Gover­nor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, to reset the party.

Though sources said he was not in support of the meeting, Tinubu, in a state­ment at the weekend, praised President Buhari, saying he acted like a true father to save the party from disintegration with the dissolution of the NWC.

He also appealed to mem­bers of the dissolved NWC to sheathe their sword and see the larger picture of the de­velopment.

Tinubu also declared that he had not made a decision on contesting the 2023 pres­idency, expressing pity for those who insinuate that President Buhari had ended his purported 2023 presiden­tial ambition with the NWC’s dissolution.

A key loyalist of Tinubu and former member of the House of Representatives, who spoke on condition of anonymity with our corre­spondent, said all was still not well within the party.

He said the CPC wing of the APC was trying to hijack the party while scheming out other political parties that contributed to the success the APC enjoys today.

“Honestly, if we want to be sincere, APC is APC. Follow­ing the merger, we shouldn’t be talking of ACN, CPC, ANPP, APGA or nPDP again.

“In 2013, we all agreed to bury our various political parties and queue behind a single political entity called the APC.

“Nigerians believed in us, retrieved their mandate from the PDP and gave it to us in 2015.

“But if you have been following events before and after the 2019 general elec­tions, it is very clear that the CPC wing is trying to sideline other political parties in the arrangement, especially the ACN, which is the dominant party in the merger.

“They have been playing hide and seek, but last week they decided to show their true colour with what hap­pened at the NEC meeting.


“I can assure you that Asi­waju Bola Tinubu was not carried along in the whole arrangement.


“I read his statement on Saturday approving the de­cisions taken at the NEC but I must tell you he did that just because he is a loyal par­ty man and elder statesman who will always do every­thing to protect the image of the party.

“But we, his loyalists, have been discussing. We are un­happy with what is happen­ing and we won’t hesitate to pull out if we get the green light to do so.”

Also speaking, Mikhail Balogun, another loyalist of Tinubu, said there were plans to cripple the ACN bloc led by Tinubu by some pow­erbrokers in the APC.

“I don’t think the crisis in the APC is over. Far from it! From what is happening, the Northern plot is on.

“I have a feeling that the APC is planning to field a Northern presidential candi­date and the nomination of Governor Mai Mala Buni, a core CPC member, as the Caretaker Committee chair­man, is part of the strategies to realise that plan.

“I have a feeling that the Yobe governor will definite­ly conduct a convention that will throw up a chairman who will deliver a Northern agenda. Let’s just wait and see,” he said.

Speaking on the latest de­velopment, Chief Olabode George, a former Deputy Na­tional Chairman of the Peo­ples Democratic Party (PDP), said Tinubu’s latest ordeal in the APC did not come to him as a surprise.

George, who said Tinubu was already receiving judg­ment from God, added that the problem of the former Lagos State governor be­gan when he started laying claims to being the ‘nation­al leader’ of the party even though he occupied no elec­tive position.

He argued that in a pres­idential system of govern­ment, the president is the national leader in a ruling political party and not any individual, no matter how highly placed.

He said: “From the very beginning, I used to tell them that the party, APC, is a con­gregation of strange bedfel­lows. When you have a big party like that and someone wants to hijack it, there will be a problem.

“First of all, it is a misno­mer in a presidential system for a man who is not elected into any position to come out and say he is the national leader of the party.

“How is that possible? There is only one national leader of the party and that is the president.”

When asked if Tinubu should pull the ACN bloc out of APC as being canvassed by his loyalists, George said: “That is his decision. I can’t decide for him.

“For me, when you start seeing the signal, if he is a very clever person, he will recall himself and have a deep introspection.

“If he thinks he can run Nigeria the way he did to La­gos, he is making a mistake,” he added.

Also speaking, Monday Ubani, a former Second Vice-President of the Nige­rian Bar Association (NBA), said it would be very prema­ture for Tinubu to pull out of the APC now.

“It will not be wise for him to pull out now because un­less he has concrete evidence that he has been sidelined, it is just speculation based on what just transpired recently.

“Among the political parties that joined forces to form the APC, the ACN led by Tinubu was the major part­ner in that venture.

“I don’t think it will be right for him to be advised now to pull out. It will be very premature for him to do so,” he said.

If you want to shoot, shoot don't talk..
Is better for you all to breakaway as soon as possible and start thinking of next plan ahead, than waiting. The outcome of the NEC meeting has clearly shown you all where you people belong, it is now left for you to break and start putting further plans in place or stick on leaking buharist a$$ until y'all want be allowed to visit or come anywhere near villa.
It has always been buharist plan to deal with you (tinubuist) right from unset... the anus is on you now...

But, Tinubu himself said he has accepted the dissolving of the NWC of the party and had pledged his support for the president....Who are these loyalists that wants to go against their master's decision?



Tinubu is pained inside and he's grieved to death and finds it very difficult to speak up as against his nurtured ambitions.


His loyalist should know better...Breaking out isn't an option. Because, the -born-to-rule- will likely turn to the Easterners and sign new orders to give them a presidential ticket and ask for their support and will ruin them after a first term. And I know that, the West don't want to lose out on this...

Until then, Nigeria is a country for the North.

If truly he want to become President, moving out of APC is not a good idea. ACN is a southwest party. How many votes can Afonjas alone give him?

Some section of the media is just bent on quickly cashing in on this APC matter before the sensations die down. It has been long they have had a newsworthy item of this magnitude. They will not allow it to go down until they have published everything publishable on it and made as enough cash as possible.

"People who “trashed” you after an electoral triumph to which you’re central will certainly go the whole hog to incinerate or bury you in the aftermath of another victory that will ensure that they will no longer need you."

Another indirect way of saying "I cant breath" with this CPC taking over of control.Meanwhile, they keep living in denial that all is well.Ambode karma paying Tinubu back.

Without rigging about 55% or at least 45% of the Yoruba people are not with Tinubu and his clique. So a breakaway he champion is going to lead self destruction. He should wait for which fate betides him coz head or tail he really doesn't have much to do to wriggle out from this present quagmire.
