APC In a Fix Over Sharing of Nass Positions, As North East Insists On SpeakershipExclusive Reports, Featured, Latest News, News Monday, April 27th, 2015
Ayodele Afolabi, Abuja – Contrary to permutations that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC has zones the National Assembly positions, the party is yet to reach any “agreeable consensus among its leaders”, a source has said.
An impeccable source in the party told African Examiner that sharing the position has become a nightmare for the party.
It was learnt that leaders from the North Eastern part have insisted on having either the Senate President or Speaker since the zone has not tasted it before.
On the other hand, it was learnt that the North central group is hell bent on having the President of the Senate because of the alleged massive votes received by the party during presidential poll from the zone.
The South west is said to be insisting that as senior partner in the merger that produced the APC, it must get the Speakership.
According to our source, the enlarged meeting of the party that was held in Abuja on Thursday became deadlocked as “it became factionalised along zonal lines”.
Our source said that “some concerned members are worried that if this disagreement is not properly managed, the party may lose the leadership of the National Assembly to the opposition PDP.
“If members were allowed to choose their leaders in the National Assembly without resolving the internal squabble, APC will have divided votes as opposed to the block votes of the PDP”, said the source.
It was learnt that the President-Elect, General Mohammadu Buhari is helpless as he wants to avoid being seen as a dictator.
“He has however given some stern conditions especially that he was not disposed to working with anyone having unresolved issues with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.”
