APC’s Congress of Crises


Across the states of the federation, the All Progressives Congress (APC), penultimate weekend, held its ward congresses, the outcome of which has left many wondering if the country is ever going to learn from the mistakes of the past if it genuinely intends to move forward.

From Lagos to Imo, Anambra, Kaduna, Delta, Rivers, Oyo and even Edo, the home state of the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the tales from the ward congresses are better off not retold. But that’s the lot of a ruling party, for whose sake the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was chased out of power and has yet proven to be worse, comparatively and in all the instructive boxes.

Yesterday, the process to the National Convention of the party continued with the local government congresses and it would next Saturday with the turn of the state before berthing at the national stop. Sadly, nothing has so far shown that certain lessons have been taken into account from the ward congresses.

Curiously, the party is excited about the general election of 2019 with a divided house, forgetting quite amazingly, that PDP’s misfortune in 2015 was made possible as a result of its divided house. Well, even if you blamed the APC, with poor leadership set skills, anyone expecting more is as good as those who think for the party.
