APC Does Not Have What Should Be The Conscience Of The Party – Chieftain
A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sunny Sylvester Moniedafe has identified the lack of a Board of Trustees (BOT) in the party as the reason behind the frequent crisis in the ruling party.
Moniedafe said the BOT should be the conscience of the party but six years after it got into power, the ruling party has failed to have a BOT.
He however stated that the time has come to change the narrative and do what is right.
The party stalwart spoke in Abuja on Wednesday adding that serving governors, former governors, lawmakers, and other hand-picked persons should no longer be allowed to unilaterally decide what obtains in the party without deferring to the party’s constitution.
“It is time for the APC to do the right thing. Let us change the narrative. I have a deep desire to unite the party and Nigeria.
“I will heal many wounds in the APC as chairman of the party. There is a need to make Nigeria better. Godfatherism will no longer work in APC.
“APC does not have a BOT which should be the conscience of the party six years after clinching power. As a result, crises within the party festers.
“It’s only in Nigeria that a person goes to bed a pauper, and wakes up a millionaire just because he has a political godfather or grandfather somewhere. Please, join me and let’s stop this Frankenstein Monster being created from being unleashed on the nation,” he said.
Moniedafe joins the list of other party chieftains including former governor of Borno State, Sen Ali Modu Sheriff; a former governor of Nasarawa State, Tanko Al-Makura; a former governor of Benue State and current Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Sen George Akume; a former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje; a former governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, a former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima and many others who have declared interest in becoming the next National Chairman of the APC.
