Young APC stakeholders call for resolution of party crisis


The All Progressives Congress (APC) Young Stakeholders, on Sunday, called on the party leadership to urgently convene an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to discuss all pending issues and resolve the crisis rocking the party.
The stakeholders regretted that the reputation of the party was at stake is being dragged into the news media everyday in ridicule with all sorts of negative headlines.
In a resolution read by Ife Adebayo, at the end of their meeting in Abuja, the stakeholders said they were forced to lend their voices to the ongoing crisis rocking the party.
They lamented that those who ought to have nipped the crisis in the bud have, shockingly, either refused to or seem unable to do so, for reasons that are they don’t understand.
“The party must as a matter of urgency call for an emergency NEC meeting-observing all the NCDC protocols as necessary to table and discuss all pending issues in the party.
“That NEC when convened, must clearly call for a National Convention as required by the constitution of the party as soon as feasible under the circumstances so as to ratify, reject or amend any law, structure or issue as agreed by it” Adebayo said.
They also called on the party leadership to commence revalidation and new registration of members so that the party would have a harmonised register to enable it properly hand the party back to the people.
This, according to them will also ensure that the party can easily conduct direct primaries or congresses without the controversies and drama that usually come with it.
It equally noted that the party has two critical gubernatorial elections coming up in Edo and Ondo States in the coming weeks, adding that the party should be focusing on how to get votes under the current Covld-19 period and ensure victory, and not engage in petty squabbles.
The stakeholders pointed out that the ruling party cannot go into those contests with a divided house, stressing that the painful cases of Zamfara and Rivers where judges handed victory to the opposition are still fresh in their minds and cannot afford similar situations to repeat themselves.
