A front line politician and former Governorship aspirant in Delta State under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Sunny Onuesoke, has predicted that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will fall apart before the general elections in 2019.
In a press release, Mr. Onuesoke challenged the APC to conduct a national convention to elect new executives and see if the party would survive the crisis that would result from such exercise as the party has been internally fractured.
He ultimately accused APC of subjecting Nigerians to economic suffering adding that the only interest of the ruling party is to become the sole political party in the country.
According to the former Governorship aspirant, Onuesoke, –
“The APC as a party is currently grasping for breath, the only thing keeping them going, is the single fact that they are still the unfortunate ruling party. I assure you that before the 2019 elections, the APC as a party, will collapse. This may come as a surprise to you but the signals are already there…
There is no denying the fact that the ruling party is divided along different interests, coupled with the recent tenure elongation of the party’s executive committee, which in itself is a contravention of its own constitution.
As a ruling party, the APC has failed on all fronts, not only as a government but as a party.
The division within the ranks of the ruling party is glaring to all, that is why the ruling party has failed to conduct even a non-elective convention since it was given birth to.
I challenge them to conduct a national convention to elect new executives, if they will see the light of the day, I am telling you this now that the APC will crash like a pack of cards even before the 2019 general elections.
In their almost three years as a ruling party nothing has been achieved, one begin to wonder what they intend to use to campaign in the 2019 elections, no wonder they are calling for the de-registration of the main opposition party, in order to create room for a one party state, which is now their main goal since they have been rejected by Nigerians.”
