THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – Buba Galadima, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party, has said if he was the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, he would have deregistered the ruling party (APC), because the party is not complying with the MoU signed during the establishment of the party three years ago.
Speaking with journalists yesterday, Wednesday, October 4, 2017, Galadima said I would have seized the APC certificate of registration because three years after its registration, the party has not been able to hold any Board of Trustees (BoT) meeting and it has failed to deliver any of the promises it made, report says.
‘APC does not deserve to be a political party; its constitution clearly states that the BoT, the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Working Committee must meet once every three months.
‘Now, since the registration of the party, was there any time that the BoT met? The party never referred to its founding fathers to gauge their mood and to know their feelings on whether it is on the right track or not.
‘I’m one of the nine people who signed the MoU for the establishment of APC based on certain agreements and ground rules. Sadly, none of these promises have been met and Nigerians cannot endure uncertainty anymore.
Galadima believes that the party would change soon but may not be under the present administration of President Buhari.
He further said, ‘I detest a situation whereby some people would hang the survival of APC on one individual; the party belongs to all of us, Nigerians. Politics and political power are transient and we must look ahead of time.’
