Re-registration exercise: Crisis looms in APC as angry party chieftains head to court

 A report by the Nigeran Tribune has detailed how some aggrieved chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are planning to scuttle the ongoing membership registration and validation exercise in all state chapters with lawsuits. 

According to the report, rancorous contestation has trailed the exercise in many states, with many chieftains claiming it is a ploy to push them out of the party. 

Most notable is the Kwara state chapter where the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has been crying foul over the alleged marginalisation of his loyalists in the exercise.  Nigeria may be heading for disintegration, Abdulsalami Abubakar raises alarm.

Beyond the state chapters’ crises, a bigger crisis tugging at the heart of the party and its future is already brewing. 

The national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is one of the chieftains who have kicked against the exercise. 

 Two former national chairmen of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and Chief Bisi Akande, as well as the national leader, Chief Bola Tinubu, have individually expressed strong reservations about the exercise. In Osun, Lagos, and Edo states where the trio are the undisputed deciders, the exercise appears to be on a smooth run but findings showed that it was being conducted against the run of play.  

It was further learnt that the choice of the leaders to slam the exercise in the course of their participation in it was a deliberate move to signal their supporters nationwide to participate in the protest. 

 It is believed that the leaders feel the registration/revalidation exercise was targeted against their continued relevance in the party and they have lined up a staccato of suits, to scuttle both the exercise and the congresses/national convention. 

 The multiple suits are to be filed by different individuals in and from different states with a gubernatorial aspirant in a southeast state expected to be a vocal litigant.
