APC Crisis: Youth turn their backs against Tinubu, protest at party secretariat

05 October 2016, 12:37

Abuja - Some youth on Tuesday protested at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), demanding that one of the party’s leaders, Bola Tinubu, stop harassing its national leadership.

The youth under the aegis of APC Youth Democratic Frontiers asked Tinubu to leave the National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, alone and concentrate his political activities in Lagos State where he (Tinubu) was governor.

Tinubu recently demanded the resignation of Odigie-Oyegun for his alleged role in the choice of Rotimi Akeredolu as the APC governorship candidate in the November governorship election in Ondo.

The deputy spokesperson of the APC, Timi Frank, also demanded the resignation of the national chairman thus indicating a crack within the leadership of the party.

During the protest, the APCYDF asked Tinubu to limit his political empire to the South-west region “because Nigeria is bigger than a region or Lagos State.”

The group’s National Coordinator, Salahudeen Lukman, who addressed journalists, said its members could no longer fold their arms and allow party feudal lords to expropriate its ethics simply on regional nomenclature aimed at usurping the national interest.

Lukman also accused the APC national leader of undermining the position of the president of the country by incessantly sponsoring the spurious ridicule of his anti-corruption fight.

He said each time fake stories of impropriety were written about these president’s appointees, paid critics and activists on hire were always quick to accuse President Muhammadu Buhari of fighting corruption while surrounding himself with corrupt people.
