Ex-APC Governors Move Against Tinubu, Wants Party Restructured
Former governors in the All Progressives Congress (APC), are pushing for a restructuring of the party along the line of legacy parties.
Noting that the crisis in the party was being stoked by a few from the South-West, the former governors, it was gathered, plan to question Tinubu’s role as national leader on claims that there is no provision for such in the constitution.
The group it was learnt, said that any attempt to allow Tinubu into the meeting hall would force them also to insist on attending the meeting.
According to a source, the governors have decided to gather at the party’s national secretariat and attempt to join the meeting if Tinubu is allowed into the meeting venue.
The Northern elements and chieftains of the party were said to have taken offence, averring that the South West was stoking the embers of discord in the party.
The chieftains warned that the crisis in the party arising from the election of principal officers of the National Assembly, “was gradually becoming a distraction to the party and could stall its manifesto of change.”
The Northern political leaders also renounced Akande’s statement on Monday which castigated the election of Saraki and Dogara as being sponsored by oil barons.
