APC Youths Slams Oyegun
The All Progressives Congress Youth Vanguard (APCYC) of Lagos, have lend its voice to the call by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Comrade Timi Frank, urging the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun to resign over what it termed as the failure of the party’s National Working Committee, to once wade into the various crisis between members of the ruling party, in the National Assembly.
In a statement issued and signed by the Chairman, Oluwatobi Johnson on Saturday in Lagos after its monthly Executive meeting, the group Corroborated an earlier stand taken by Comrade Frank, saying it is saddened, by the failure of the party leadership, to see as an issue of urgent National importance, the crisis within the Assembly which began between members of the All Progressives Congress in the Senate and has now found its way to the House of Representatives.
The group took a swipe at the attempt by the party’s leadership to remain silent and see the issue as mere disagreement within the Assembly, not minding the greater implication on the corporate image and integrity of the ruling party.
“We cannot continue to behave as if these persons whose images are being battered in these politically motivated campaigns, did not contribute to the making and the eventual enthronement of our party at the centre” the statement read.
The group therefore asked the party’s National Chairman, to relinquish his position for a more competent hand that can practically act as the leader and father of all within the party. It further said that the numerous intra-party crisis being witnessed since the inception of this administration is already taking its toll on governance and it is not in any way going to be in the interest of the fortune of the APC in the nearest future.
The group call on all actors within the National Assembly to immediately embrace dialogue while urging in particular, Honourable Abdulmumin Jubrin, to retrace his step and resolve whatever differences he has with the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara in the interest of the party and good governance in the country.
