Immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun, has called for the sack of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Party and constitution of a caretaker committee to pilot the affairs of the Party.
Oyegun in a statement in Abuja on Saturday titled ‘APC: Before it is too late’, said it has become a matter of necessity following the crisis that has engulfed the party.
The statement reads in part: “This statement is therefore a clarion call to leaders of the party, particularly the governors and Mr. President to urgently bring a stop to the disgraceful and humiliating charade occurring within the National Secretariat of our great party. There is a most urgent need for the party NEC to meet and institute for the party a Caretaker Committee (even if we have to invoke the doctrine of necessity), whose main responsibility will be to arrange for a special National Convention.
“We approached Nigerians with the promise of change that resonated widely across the country. Based on our promise of change, the people voted against the ruling party in a collective political action that was unprecedented in our nation’s history. Never before had our people’s hopes been so raised. It is my fervent prayers that in a few years from now, we do not look back and say never before have a people’s hope been so dashed.”
