APC Illegal Officials Deceitful, Insensitive – PDP – GF


Peter Jerome

The PDP Governors forum, PDP – GF, has described the statement of the Secretary of the APC Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe who claim the outcome of the forum’s meeting in Ibadan was a total waste of time with no substance, as a statement lacking in basic credibility and very disheartening that an officer of an illegal, unelected and unlawful APC contraption is living in a fancy world.

The forum in a statement signed by Hon CID Maduabum Director General PDP Governors’ Forum, described Akpanudoedehe’s position as the hallmark of how low our politics has sunken for an unelected Party Officer to rubbish the efforts of patriots to find lasting solutions to the Security and economic challenges facing the nation.

“How can a meeting of 15 State Governors that made concrete suggestions on how to improve the almost hopeless Nigerian condition under the APC Government be termed a Jamboree? Can a meeting that called for a speedy passage of the Electoral Act, de-escalation of tension in Nigeria, the equipping, welfare, training financing, and stoppage of personal attacks on Nigerian Police Force be termed a Jamboree and a waste of time?

“It is most disheartening that If one may ask, where did President Buhari do Electoral reforms in the last 6 years other than vetoeing 2 bills sent to him by the 8th NASS on Electoral reforms? How has the country’s security architecture been improved by President Buhari other than in the imagination of Sen Akpanudodehe?  Is he serious that security has improved under Buhari? What concrete measures has APC government taken to curb Herders / Farmers clashes other than inciting ridiculous statements regularly dished out from two Presidential aides on behalf of the so-called PRESIDENCY?

“Is he not aware that issues of restructuring, devolution of powers, state policing proposals and ranching, have been endorsed by the Nigerian Governors Forum (With 21 APC Governors), Northern Governors Forum (with 13 APC Governors) Southern Governors Forum (with 7 APC Governors,); Arewa Consultative Forum and even the El Rufai Committee?

“Perhaps, because the Caretaker Committee is not elected and consequently, devoid of any democratic mandate, as required by the Nigerian Constitution, they seem to be insensitive to the feeling and suffering of Nigerians under APC misrule especially the insecurity and economic challenges facing the nation?

“No wonder that after more than a year of usurping the offices of the APC National Executive Committee, the Caretaker Committee is unable to organise a National Convention and had to take the unprecedented step, just this week of describing those who sought for the holding of the APC National Convention, as “the handwork of political jobbers” and “fifth Columnists”.

“The illegal APC Caretaker/ Extraordinarily Convention Planning Committee extended their 6-month mandate to One year. Is the inability of APC to constitute a Board of Trustees since 2014 going to be repeated for its National Convention? Maybe if the Committee faced its unlawful mandate squarely it would not be making reckless statements.

It could be recalled that the PDP Governors forum in its Communique had called on Mr President, to summon the Nigeria Police Council which is constitutionally mandated to organise and administer the Nigeria Police Force, a statutory organ of state comprising of Mr President as Chairman,  the 36 State Governors, IGP and Chairman Police Service Commission as members, that has practically not been meeting since 2015, to begin to grapple with the immediate problems of policing , pending a constitutionally based restructuring.

Maduabum further called on all statesmen and patriots to work together to RESCUE NIGERIA.
