Buhari Is The Only One Who Can End APC Crisis – Balarabe Musa

Published

APC

Former Governor of old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, says the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) is self-inflicted and calls for a quick action by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“It is history repeating itself. This happened during Shehu Shagari’s administration. When Shagari failed to address it quickly, it resulted in corruption and killings. And Shagari could not control it,” said Musa in an interview with Vanguard, adding that “Now that similar situation has arisen again, if Buhari, does not address these issues quickly, same thing could happen to him. Because he is the President of the country, people must listen to him.”

Musa noted that the division in the APC became more obvious when Senate President Bukola Saraki insulted leaders of the APC by consulting former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

“Obviously, the party is divided. The rivalry in APC is between PDP 1 and PDP 2. You can imagine a senator elected under APC going to consult former President Olusegun Obasanjo! For what?

“The infection of the so-called APC is nothing but the PDP! Why will the APC be going to the chief maker of the PDP to resolve its problem! Is that not PDP1 and PDP 2.

“If they are starting to consult Obasanjo, and not party leaders like President Buhari or Asiwaju Bola Tinubu without whom there will be no APC and others. The fact is, these two people should unite the APC and ensure it succeeds. For Senator Saraki to be consulting Chief Obasanjo to resolve issues affecting APC is an insult to APC leaders,” he said.

Balarabe Musa noted that the only way forward for the APC is for “President Buhari to stand up and address the issues as the President of Nigeria. He should take the right step because our collective interest as a nation is more important for peace, stability and progress in Nigeria.”
