A former Interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has described the party’s Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Committee as an abnormality, adding that the party’s ongoing registration and revalidation are an indefensible aberration.
Akande during the commencement of the party’s registration and revalidation in Ila Orangun, Osun State, warned the National Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Committee, led by the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, against perpetuating itself in office.
He urged the committee to resist all temptations of sit-tight syndromes that usually characterised most handpicked authorities in most underdeveloped countries of the world.
The caretaker committee was inaugurated June 25, 2020 following the sacking of the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC).
Akande stated that political party register, as distinct from population census or voters register, is supposed to include the list of opinion leaders with a particular ideological orientation.
He added that he felt humbled to have been honoured with a singular privilege of presiding over the creation of the original register of the ruling party.
He said he was also proud and happy that the original party register so created was the foundation of all the structures that stimulated the movement that pushed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) out of power.
He warned that the next national election to elect a successor to President Muhammadu Buhari is going to be the most important test of the ongoing APC membership registration and whatever structure is being envisaged to be imposed on it.
