APC chieftains want Buhari to help with solving the party’s problems by impressing action on Odigie-Oyegun
Chieftains in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have written a letter of complaint to President Muhammadu Buhari over the in-actions of national chairman John Odigie-Oyegun on critical issues with the party.
The Punch reports that the chieftains who are members of the National Executive Council of the party who wrote under the umbrella of Forum of APC NEC members complaining about their continued exemption from the party’s affairs.
The group said President Buhari should direct the National Working Committee led by Oyegun to urgently convene a NEC meeting.
The meeting, they said, is to enable members tackle the issues affecting the unity within the party’s rank and file.
According to the letter, members of the forum had written several letters to the party’s national chairman, “without any positive reaction hence this ‘Save our party’ request”.
The forum’s letter was signed by the National Ex-Officio/South-West Coordinator, Omolayo Akintola and it noted that doing nothing to counter the concerns raised by party members could lead to ‘preventable, avoidable and unnecessary intra-party cracks that the present situation might generate’.
The letter dated April 6, 2017 and titled ‘Save our party – APC’ was made available to newsmen on Sunday, April 9.
It read in part: “To be noted for appropriate advice is the exclusion of a sizeable number of federating states from the scheme of things within the party because many states are not presently represented by party officers on the current National Working Committee, hence, the need to be having regular NEC meetings pending the much awaited amendment to the present party constitution.
“We, therefore, deemed it necessary putting this letter across for your timely actions to save our great party from preventable, avoidable and unnecessary intra-party/in-house cracks that the present situation might generate.”
