A chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Salisu Kainuwa Tsafe has said the current crisis rocking the ruling party may not be resolved soon.
Bibian Anekwe News understands that APC’s National Convention is scheduled to hold on March 26 and the party is yet to overcome cracks over its leadership.
Speaking ahead of the convention, which is now less than twelve days, Tsafe who was a former leader, Zamfara State House of Assembly, noted that Governor Mai Mala Buni-led’s caretaker committee went outside the party’s constitutional provisions in its operations.
Tsafe, while interacting with newsmen in Gusau, Zamfara State capital on Monday, said the main reason for constituting the caretaker committee was to make adequate arrangements for the National convention of the party.
According to him, every other action by the caretaker committee were illegal as they were outside their statutory mandate.
Bibian Anekwe News reports that the former lawmaker lampooned the caretaker committee, saying it was unfortunate that the committee was given six months to conduct a credible national convention but it manipulated its ways to spend up to eighteen months.
“The constitution of the party does not recognize an acting committee, and after Adams Oshiomole was sacked by the NEC, his Deputy, Mr Niyi was supposed to take over but he was made a Minister and when the southern part of Nigeria failed to organize themselves, it was resolved that a convention committee be formed so that new leaders of the party could emerge.
“I, therefore, challenge anybody advocating for Mai Mala Buni to explain wherein the party’s constitution provides that an acting committee was allowed to be formed to run the affairs of the party,” he said.
Tsafe insisted that it was too late for the APC to fix the challenges before the scheduled date for the national convention.
