APC: Our roof is caving in, former aspirants warn Asiwaju BolaTinubu

A group of former aspirants within the All Progressives Congress, APC, are urging Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to prevent the wave of defections that are currently taking place.

The group operating under aegis of APC360 warned that the spate of defections imvolving party members is “hazardous and harmful to the health and wealth of our great party.”

According to Chris Enoch who presented the point of view of the former aspirants,  the situation has become very alarming.

They warned that the trend “particularly when we are preparing for a national election” could endanger the future of the party if not checked.

           Tinubu, what he really do about APC members that are leaving?

Describing themselves as “members of the only pressure group that has invested in this great party”, they were concerned because of their “belief that the massive decamping which is being surreptitiously carried out is planned and calculated to frustrate the coasting to victory of Tinubu at the in-coming general election.”

APC360 which comprises aspirants drawn from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory revealed that “those who have scores to settle with the party or are holding grudges” were working against the party.

“Some of these defection cases are sponsored by some powerful members who feel dissatisfied with the mood and manner by which the party has treated them with the conduct of the primaries while others are borne out of the allegation that the party hierarchy abandoned and relegated them to the background after victory”,

Enoch  further noted that the losers were neither acknowledged nor compensated for the “huge efforts and heavy commitment” they made towards the success of the party before the winners of primaries recorded victory.

“We as vested stakeholders in the party can no longer stay akimbo and pretend that things are okay, while large number of significant members particularly aspirants from 2015, 2013, and 2022 primaries, are decamping to strengthen opposition parties which give them listening ears”, Enoch added.
