There Might Not Be Anything Like APC After Buhari’s Departure In 2023 – Okorocha Warns

Outspoken Imo West Senator, Rochas Okorocha has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may cease to exist immediately President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure lapses in 2023, saying the level of internal crisis in the party leaves no doubt about it.

Okorocha’s remark  is connected to the political staredown between the APC’s national leader, Adams Oshiomole and the Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki — which has supposedly prompted several unsettling incidences across the state– including Sunday’s thugs attack on the state governor, the Oba of Lagos and some dignitaries that attended a function at Oshiomole’s residence.

The former Imo State governor expressed deep concerns about the all-too-recurrent internal crisis in the party.

His words: “A political party should be a group of people who share common political interest and beliefs; people who pursue a common goal or common objective for the good of the common man. That will be my understanding of a political party, but any political party that is full of internal crisis is no longer a political party in the real sense of a political party.

“This idea of crisis and idea of commotions show that the said party does not have a common ideology. If the ideology is one and you believe in one thing, there should not be reason for disagreement at that level. You might have a minor disagreement, but when it comes to the issue of do-or-die, it is no longer a political party.

“So, let us see what we can do in this country to redefine what we mean by internal democracy. This is why people have options; this is why we don’t believe in one party system. We must have different political parties and identify the one that is in line with our vision, the one that is line with our political belief.

“Talking about what is happening in Edo State, it is unfortunate but a true political party cannot work against itself. So, I want to advise that they reconcile and relax their differences. The truth is that a party that is divided among it can never stand.

I have said this earlier, APC is a party that we hurriedly put together when we were governors because we felt that the government at that time was not living up to expectation and we wanted to make sure that we brought about change at that time.

“That is why we came together and formed the All Progressives Congress and we ensured that the party got power in 2015.  That was how it was then and we achieved that.

“Right now, I think we should continue with the same pace that we started with in 2015 election but that does not seem to be the case. President Muhammadu Buhari gave character to APC. He brought his integrity to bear on the party. He made the party what it is in the northern part of the country and the masses of the North who saw him as a true leader, and we all rode on that to achieve that victory, but after the credibility of Buhari into this party, there seem to be no alternative in the same manner that will drive this party to 2023 victory.

“This is why I expressed my concern that if we are not very careful, APC might go with Buhari in 2023, and that will be a very unfortunate situation for the founding fathers of APC. The party needs to show purposeful leadership, show character,” Okorocha said
