Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo, on Thursday, called for the sack of Sen. Osita Izunaso, the party´s National Organising Secretary.

The members, who protested at the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja, with placards, accused Izunaso of compromising standards in Saturday´s local government congress in the state.

Mr Kassim Muhammad Kassim, a serving lawmaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly, who led the group, said Izunaso was indirectly working for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to frustrate re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

When asked on his business with aggrieved members of the party from Imo, Kassim said that he had “interest’’ in their problem.

In a complaint letter addressed to the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, dated May 17, the protesters also called for a fresh ward congress in Imo and other states where there were issues with the exercise.

The letter read: ´´We humbly wish to write and formally notify you of our grievances toward the recently-concluded ward congress of the party in Imo.

´´The National Organising Secretary of APC, Sen. Osita Izunaso, is bent on causing confusion in Imo to frustrate Rochas Okorocha out of the party.

´´We are not comfortable with the development and we demand that he should be sacked immediately.

´´We also want to notify the National Working Committee that Sen. Osita Izunaso is playing the script of opposition to deliver South-East for his sole interest.´´

2019: We’re out to end PDP’s oppressive rule in Delta, says Ogboru

Published

Great Ogboru


Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state, Great Ogboru has said that the APC was ready to put an end to what he described as 19 years of oppressive governance by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state with a clear victory that will return power to the people.

Ogboru who spoke with reporters at the APC national secretariat in Abuja is confident that ongoing reconciliation efforts within the party will position it as a winning party on the state.

“I have heard people saying Delta State is a PDP State, that is highly untrue because majority and a very significant number of our people are not PDP complaint. Most of the people in Delta State, the electorate have been oppressed by the PDP government for the past sixteen years, maybe for the past nineteen years.

“But as you all know, the PDP has been able to sustain itself in many parts of our country, Delta State inclusive by means other than true or proper votes of the electorate. That is history now because times have changed, circumstances have changed, power has changed, the leadership of our country has changed and the thinking of our people across the country generally has also changed.

“So, I believe that those limiting factors that militated against us in the past are not quite there anymore to make it impossible for us to achieve what we need to do which is to make sure the votes of Delta people will count, translate those votes into victory and to put the government in place for Delta people which is government for the people, by the people and for the people. That is why I am a candidate.

“The crises are in two folds. One was the crisis that started during congresses, and those skirmishes that followed the primaries. We have done a lot as a party in the State to reconcile factions and aggrieved persons and the National leaders have sent a reconciliation committee.

“At the governmental level, I know that the Vice President called aggrieved members and some warring factions to come and sit on the table of brotherhood to find a way forward. Largely put, I think progress is being made. A few grievances are still lying unresolved, but now the party has put better input and resources in place to put its house in order as much as it can to make sure that Delta State APC emerges victorious in the next election.”

2019: APC speaks on Tinubu’s ‘refusal’ to lead its campaign council

Tinubu

Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to claims that a national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bolaji Tinubu, has refused to chair the campaign council of the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

But the APC, speaking through its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, allayed fears over Tinubu’s position.

Onilu said, “I have not seen the report you are talking about, but in the first place, that could be a bit hypothetical as members of the campaign council have not been announced.

“What you should be certain of, is that whatever position Asiwaju Bola Tinubu takes, as someone who has demonstrated uncommon leadership for this party, it must be in the best interest of the party.

“As l said, l have not seen that report and l don’t know the reasons he gave and in any case appointments have not been announced as far as the council is concerned.

“That is why l said it is hypothetical, but l am at peace and nobody in the party will lose sleep because they are certain that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is working 24/7 in the best interest of the party.”

2019: PRP about to crash in Bauchi – Chiroma

Published

Peoples Redemption Party

Peoples Redemption Party

Alhaji Ahmadu Chiroma, the embattled chairman of the Bauchi State chapter of the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, said the party was fast heading for a crash.

Chiroma disclosed this in a chat with journalists Saturday in Bauchi.

“I assure you that Pate will not win governorship election under PRP in Bauchi for dissolving the existing party structures across the state and lately replaced them with APC supporters,” Chiroma alleged

Chiroma further stressed that he had personally warned the former national chairman of PRP Balarabe Musa former Kaduna state governor not to mortgage the party to Pate who then lost APC guber ticket for the best interest democracy, but all to no avail

“There is no justice in uprooting the party’s existing structures, especially those that suffered to sustain the party for years just because you want to become Governor by all means without regard to the owners of the party,” added Chiroma.

He, therefore, urged Pate and his team to declare their exit from APC through the media and rescind the dissolution of PRP LGAs executives

Meanwhile, when DAILY POST contacted Barau Ningi, the PRP factional chairman on phone, he said he can only react when he comes back to Bauchi.
