APC crises: I am ready to make sacrifices -Oyegun

He was reacting to Tuesday's decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC to extend the tenure of Oyegun and state chairmen of the party by 12 months.

NAIJ.com gathered that Reuters said the APC's governing bodies had told the president to go ahead and run for office again in 2019 in its reports released on Wednesday, February 28.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum has congratulated Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the extension of their tenures by one year.

In a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said what the APC constitution provided for was a four-year tenure for officials of its organs and a re-election or reappointment at the expiration of tenure, but not illegal oneyear tenure extension.

We also urge Mr. President to present himself for second tenure come 2019. "This has clearly shown that APC is an undemocratic party, a party, which has been in existence for three years but has never obeyed its own constitution", Frank said in a statement, challenging anybody to show proof any demand of the party's constitution had ever been "religiously obeyed".


He further noted that the APC was a party borne out of the quest for democratic good governance, arguing that the ideology was now under a critical threat "by those who managed to be in the party but were never part of it".

According to the PDP, the APC is "so dysfunctional that under the grip of the presidency cabal, the party in contravention of its own constitution does not have a Board of Trustees (BOT), which explains the reason it lacks conscience and failed completely in delivering good governance to the nation". This has shown that those who took such decision are selfish and does not mean well for APC. Since June 2015 following the controversial election that produced Bukola Saraki as Senate president and Yakubu Dogara as Speaker of the House of Representatives, the two politicians have not been enjoying best relationship politically as the party chairman had consistently wielded his power as the number one man of the ruling party much to the consternation of the Tinubu camp.

His assurance to extend hands of fellowship to aggrieved chieftains is coming on the heels of plot by the aggrieved camp to challenge the tenure extension in court.

"The power of the National Executive Committee of our party can not go beyond doing so by way of constitution amendment".

"Even when the presidency had appointed the national leader of APC to reconcile all the aggrieved members, the tenure elongation clearly shows that the party is going nowhere beyond 2019 because if they didn't believe in Tinubu's reconciliatory panel why did they set up at all?".
