………Says The APC National Chairmanship position is not for Ex-Governors alone
As the date for the national convention of the All Progressives Congress(APC) draws closer, the Chairman of the National Assembly Progressive Media Aides (NAPMAIDEs), Prince Oyelude Oladele, advise APC stakeholders nationwide to think beyond ex-governors.
While encouraging the APC leaders to think deep on their choice candidacy, Oyelude added that the APC National Chairmanship position is not for ex-governor alone.
“The perception that ex-governors are in the best position to lead the party at the national level should be jettison, the thinking that ex-governors are connected to 36 States of the federation shouldn’t be a selling point, each of the national parliamentarians are also connected to 109 Senatorial District and 360 Federal Constituencies”.
“It is becoming a norm, all the former National Chairman of the APC are ex-governors and before the expiration of their tenure, they are either suspended or voluntarily resigned after much pressure. APC leaders nationwide must rethink and break the jinx to avoid Oshiomhole treatment in the future”.
Prince Oyelude Oladele also advise APC leaders across the country to look for a credible candidate that will continue where Gov. Buni led CECPC will stop.
“It’s not a gain saying, Gov. Buni led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has welcome many opposition leaders and followers to the APC, leaders across the 36 states and FCT should consider a credible personality that will continue with the soul winning strategy of Gov. Buni led CECPC with a rekindled spirit to perfect other party responsibilities”.
The Chairman of the parliamentary media group, Oyelude further noted that thinking beyond ex-governors as the APC National Chairman will surely change the perception among party men and strengthen their confidence in the leadership of the party.
“Party men do complain of favouritism and authoritarianism whenever an ex-governor is the National Chairman of the party with a claim that tend to favour their ex-governors counterpart on party issues which may create mayhem, disbelief in the leadership and eventually lead to calls for their resignation,” Oyelude added.
