A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Ahmadu Dan Zago, has warned of dire consequences for the party if the ongoing internal squabbles are not amicably resolved.
He reminded the governing party that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, lost the 2015 general elections because it failed to settle the differences and disagreements among its members.
The APC has been accused of not properly managing its success at the polls last year just as there is mutual suspicion among members, especially between the Executive and the party’ dominated National Assembly, following the emergence of Bukola Saraki as Senate President and Yakubu Dogara as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Speaking in Abuja yesterday, Dan Zago, a former North-West chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC), one of the legacy parties that merged to form the APC, advised leaders of the governing party to “put more effort” to tackle the lingering crisis, especially by embracing all the aggrieved members.
“But, if they keep quiet until they come to them, or they set up a committee and forget about it, then they should forget about 2019 because Nigeria is dynamic.
“We should remember that we took the government from an incumbent. We are now the incumbent. We should not be in a hurry to forget about the past. The other party refused to settle their differences and that led to their loss”, he said.
