Apc is not in turmoil


Apc is not in turmoil. Former All Progressives Congress Acting National Chairman, Hilliard Eta, has responded to the resignations of his predecessor, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and the party’s National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore, claiming it is a’settled issue.’

Eta, the Institute for Progressive Affairs’ Governing Council chairman, refuted reports that the ruling party is in disarray.

The APC chieftain made the denial when he visited the national secretariat in Abuja to discuss the 10th anniversary of the ruling party with the new leadership.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday, he argued that the ‘voluntary’ resignations of Adamu and Omisore are in line with the party’s constitution.

He said, “The institute has no official position on this. The truth of the matter is that I do not believe the party is in turmoil. We are very quick to give names and meanings to things that are very mundane and simple. Turmoil means not settled. There is nothing that is not settled. The chairman has resigned; it is settled. The secretary has resigned; it is settled. The president, governors and NWC are looking for replacements; it is settled. There is nothing that is unsettling.

“Our political party is made up of Nigerians with diverse worldviews, ideologies, and perspectives.” You can’t expect millions of people to get together without squabbles and squabbles. Even in nuclear families, where the mother and children are from the same father, there is animosity. Let us not take these things too seriously. There are no problems. It is normal for the national vice chairman from the North-East to disagree with the governors since we are not robots.

“If we all agree, that’s not democracy because the moment you take away the element of choice, it’s no longer democracy.” individuals are elected to govern political parties because of their ability to bring individuals who differ together. So, conflict resolution is where party management excels, because Ali and Tom will undoubtedly disagree. The APC is doing very well as a political party in handling issues. There is really nothing that can be called a threat to the existence of the party.”

Asked for his position on the alleged endorsement of former Kano Governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, by the president and the APC governors, Eta reiterated that the report has not been confirmed.

The former National Vice Chairman for South-South stated that unless Tinubu or Ganduje come out openly to confirm the development, it will remain a figment of imagination.

“My first thought is, who said it?” If the president makes the decision, we can start talking about it. The president has not said he chose him. The governors have not said so. I can’t react to an issue where we don’t know who chose him. If he (Ganduje) tells us who chose him, we can start responding,” he said.

Continuing, the APC chieftain also denied the viral report that Nigerians have turned their backs on the ruling party.

According to him, a considerable number of the masses voted for the president because of his ideologies and strong conviction that he can arrest the dwindling fortunes of Nigeria.

“Let me say that there are no studies to show whether Nigerians are against the APC or not,” he said. However, as politicians, we believe that the best way to find out is through an election. We also recently won the presidential election. I can promise you that the presidential tribunal will uphold the results of the election.

“Those who waited for President Tinubu to emerge did so because they believe he has the talent and capacity to bring people together, and Nigeria needs the best to come together again.” The government is still in its early stages because I believe he still has the ability to bring the greatest people together, and Nigeria will profit from the brilliance.

“This party was founded on Progressive principles.” When we ran for office in 2014, we campaigned on ideas. We will not let these ideas die. We may have been disappointed along the way, but we will stick to our guns.”

The former APC chairman also revealed that members of the Institute for Progressive Affairs are collaborating with the party’s leadership to successfully honor the party’s tenth anniversary on July 31.

“The purpose of our visit to the party today is to get to know and interact with the party’s leadership, especially with the party’s 10th anniversary approaching.” The All Progressives Congress was founded on July 31, 2013, as you are all aware. One week has passed.

“The party was founded in 2013, and by 2015, we had accomplished the unthinkable: we had opposition parties band together and deposed a political behemoth that had dominated the political landscape for 16 years.” In addition, we have won back-to-back national elections in 2019 and 2023. “We’ve also won a number of state elections,” he added.
